    I seriously considered stabbing a kid who had been picking on me with a broken plastic ruler in elementary school.

    I'm an ex-Marine. I'm an expert in firearms and pretty good with knives and fists. I would have no problem killing, if necessary. But that doesn't make me a psychopath. To be a true psychopath, you have to have that moral sliminess, IMO.

    I don't think I am one.

    I just think I've got some similarities.

    I've been shooting since I was a child, and have a background in MMA and am just OK with knives.

    Fair enough. These personality disorders are a continuum, meaning we're all on that scale somewhere (IOW, we all have "some similarities"). I took the psychopathy test linked in the article in the OP and came up with "Average," myself. Averagely psychopathic, I guess.

    I think my ability to dispassionately assess the value of things will aid me greatly in my new career in finance.

    Disco, I just don't see you as a psychopath. Yeah, gradients exist, but at a certain point you have to draw the line.

    Do you unfeelingly swindle people out of considerable sums of money?
    Do you torture small animals just to exert control over them (skinning them alive, stabbing them, battering them etc.)?
    Do you deliberately lie at the sharp expense of others?

    I'll agree with you there. That feeds into the "coolness under fire" dimension of psychopathy, and ENTJs have that in spades. OTOH, watch out for any manifestation of the "impulsivity" dimension. That particular dimension will definitely get you into hot water in the finance arena.

    The impulsiveness thing is more of a play issue than a work issue luckily.

    From above.

    Sounds good. Work hard, play hard.
