Do you know a psychopath?

Do you know a psychopath? I actually know two. And I'm nearly certain I used to work with a third. Not all psychopaths (or sociopaths, the terms are pretty much interchangeable) are Ted Bundy-like serial killers. But they all cause trouble.

They are superficially charming, have a grandiose sense of self-worth, need excitement, lie, manipulate, are often impatient and aggressive, and live a parasitic lifestyle. They also don’t feel guilt.

NPR had a long story about the man who has devoted his career to studying psychopaths - Dr. Robert Hare.
