The Psychopath Test

Psych Research

Do you think greed is good?

In his book "Snakes in Suits", psychopathy expert Robert Hare puts forward the argument that many people in executive corporate positions are psychopaths. Certain components of psychopathy - such as impulsively taking desicions without worrying about the consequences, or being indifferent to the needs or pain of other people - can be an advantage when it comes to getting "to the top" in business.

Could it be that psychopaths are responsible for the banking crisis?

Take this test to find out how you score on the traits of psychopathy and entrepeneurship. Do you take the feelings of others into account? Do you find yourself failing to learn from your mistakes and always getting into the same kinds of trouble? And what about business - are you a successful entrepreneur? Find out by taking this test.

It will take around 10-15 minutes. You will be asked to answer a few questions about yourself and your position in business, and then you will be asked simply to rate your agreement with a number of statements on a sliding scale.
