I am a Fishead: Are Corporate Leaders Psychopaths?


The following is a description of the video and outline by the author. I personally have had an interest in this type of personality for many years and first encountered what I describe a garden-variety sociopath in a corporate environment. That is when researching such a brain type became fascinating. They walk our planet by the millions, have no conscience, can mimic emotions and have leadership in the highest places. ENJOY!

“It is a well-known fact that our society is structured like a pyramid. The very few people at the top create conditions for the majority below. Who are these people? Can we blame them for the problems our society faces today? Guided by the saying “A fish rots from the head” we set out to follow that fishy odor. What we found out is that people at the top are more likely to be psychopaths than the rest of us.

Who, or what, is a psychopath? Unlike Hollywood’s stereotypical image, they are not always blood-thirsty monsters from slasher movies. Actually, that nice lady who chatted you up on the subway this morning could be one. So could your elementary school teacher, your grinning boss, or even your loving boyfriend.

The medical definition is simple: A psychopath is a person who lacks empathy and conscience, the quality which guides us when we choose between good and evil, moral or not. Most of us are conditioned to do good things. Psychopaths are not. Their impact on society is staggering, yet altogether psychopaths barely make up one percent of the population.

Through interviews with renowned psychologist Professor Philip Zimbardo, leading expert on psychopathy Professor Robert Hare, former President of Czech Republic and playwright Vaclav Havel, authors Gary Greenberg and Christopher Lane, professor Nicholas Christakis, among numerous other thinkers, we have delved into the world of psychopaths and heroes and revealed shocking implications for us and our society.”

    Most certainly many topics are negative and open for discussion and/or facing them head on with action is required but through it all one should hold on to positive thoughts and keep the faith.. I say standing tall in the midst of trials which are dark is what is required in our world. We can’t be like the majority who turn up the radio and pretend like something doesn’t exist.
