    How bout just learn to adapt the traits of "charm, confidence, ruthlessness, coolness under pressure" sans psychosis.
    Screw psychosis- it's unpredicable and can be dangerous- and we shouldn't glorify mental illness (not stigmatize it) but we should be realistic and call it what it is.

    Basically what he means is that there's a place in society for psychopaths - to be expendable wartime cannon fodder. (I'm taking my paraphrasing artistic license to some charming heights, mind you).

    You have more experience in the workplace than I do, so I personally value your contributions here - even if they were purely anecdotal.

    Yeah... He makes (un)intentional sexual innuendos from time to time. Some of them are a little too well placed. If you can unravel this mystery, I'll give you a held item.

    Most psychopaths would be the ones *in charge* of that kind of thing, not cannon fodder. : P

    This. Natural selection selects for the gene for antisocial personality, and research has shown that a proportion of every society will be made up of these types. But as a significant minority, or society would crumble from within. They are the ones who wouldn't think twice to put themselves at the front line of a tribal war. No hesitation, no fear, thirsty.

    How this is manifested, makes or breaks a "psychopath" (clinical term, antisocial personality disorder). I remember in clinical psychology classes, reading that these people need a greater thrill/stimulation (of the "dangerous" kind) to feel what we would feel with much less extreme stimulation. Those brought up in a positive, functional environment grow up to be involved in work that is still aligned with society's values - like stuntmen, etc.

    Those not, become ruthless killers, the parasites of our society.

    So, just because someone is predisposed to this does not excuse it. Naturalistic fallacy. Environmental influences has a lot to do with how that will manifest. A big hint is if, as a kid, he is diagnosed with conduct disorder. (Yes, I used he as this is disproportionately skewed by gender)

    Here's a classic example, The Iceman:

    Ps- it has nothing to do with MBTI personality type. That's ridiculous, at best, and a gross misunderstanding of MBTI and antisocial personality, at worst.

    There's literature showing correlations between various MBTI dimensions and psychological disorders, so your statement is trivially false. It absolutely has something to do with MBTI personality types.
