Radio DJ’s are Psychopaths
A new study has found that some professions are far more likely to attract mentally unstable people than others.
Researchers found that the job of being a corporate CEO is most likely to attract psychopaths – with lawyers coming in at number two.
Close behind lawyers are television and radio professionals.
After being in this business for 20+ years, I can definitely vouch for radio people being a little ‘off’. We wear it as a badge of honor. Most of us admit we’re a little ‘different’. And we could write a book about some of the people we’ve met and worked with and stories that would make WKRP in Cincinnati seem VERY tame. But I’m not sure if the statute of limitations has expired yet.
Just in case you’re in one of these fields, don’t worry. Being a psychopath doesn’t mean you’re a maniac ax murderer.
Instead, traits of psychopaths include pathological lying, lack of guilt, lack of empathy, an excessive sense of self-worth, and promiscuous sexual behavior.
