Opinions and musings on religion, philosophy, science, politics, and life from a conservative Catholic neurosurgeon.
Which professions have the most psychopaths?
I disagree with the rank for Lawyer. I can tell you personally (I know several, one very personally) that lawyers aren't all that bad. Why, it's only the 99% of bad apples that give the 1% a bad reputation.
ADM:I agree. I have met a few scumbag lawyers, but I know quite a few more who are really good people. But when a lawyer is a scumbag, he/she is really a scumbag.
As a physician, I have no doubt whatsoever that you've been exposed to the 99%. The billboards are everywhere around here. And I'll bet my next dividend that NY has physician-unfriendly tort law. (BTW, Mrs Adm. is from Albany).
Good thing 'ranked military' is not listed. We'd have to send someone to f@#%@&g kill them .... ALL. Excuse me, now. I have to go and bake a cake.
Crus:Heh. Because they listed surgeons, we'll have to perform some unnecessary surgery on them!
Seriously, though...There is one very notable absence from the + list. One 'profession' that should be, in my mind, near or at the top of that list: 'Career politician'.
