    Interesting article when Mr. Killingsworth makes the observations that: "At the thin outer edges of the [integrity] curve, perhaps two standard deviations from the mean, we have the true psychopaths at one end .... Most realistic candidates fall somewhere in the middle 96 percent of the integrity curve...."

    In fact, in a new book by Jon Ransom, The Psychopath Test, Mr. Ransom points out that many CEOs fit the textbook definition of a psychopath, and that most CEOs fall on the psychopath end of the integrity bell curve. There are physical tests -- a lack of stimulus response in the amygdela creating a lack of empathic behavior -- as well as the psychological tests that Mr. Ransom uses in his book. Interestingly, Mr. Ransom is able to identify Al Dunlap as having psychopathic personality disorder from an interview. Boards should be very aware when they start seeing evidence of abnormal behavior -- a focus on immediate gratification, affairs, or other signs that fit the psychopath test.
