Hmm. I'm not sure if there's any good way to comment on this story without putting my Christmas bonus in serious jeopardy**, so I'll let the Daily Mail explain:

Business leaders are four times more likely to be psychopaths than the general population, a study has found.

One out of every 25 company high-flyers is believed to have the mental disorder but disguises it through their high status, charm and manipulation in the workplace.

And only favourable environmental factors - such as having had a happy childhood - prevent their psychopathic tendencies turning them into serial killers.

Well, that's... comforting.
