Psychopathic Traits Help Presidential Candidates

We are closing in on a significant election in November. We always presume that our candidates are stable intelligent people, but a new study claims that the candidate with the most psychopathic traits might just be the best bet for your vote. Scary isn’t it?.

Researchers from Emory University don’t want us to think that all psychopaths are criminally insane. In fact, researchers claim that a number of our most highly thought of American Presidents showed some psychopathic qualities, such as “fearless dominance” that perhaps made them better leaders and more capable of handling a crisis.

Researchers looked at 42 U.S. presidents and discovered that one of the most highly rated in “fearless dominance” was Theodore Roosevelt, followed by John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, Rutherford B. Hayes, Zachary Taylor, Bill Clinton, Martin Van Buren, Andrew Jackson and George W. Bush.

Being president demands some level of fearlessness, but it’s scary when you attach those traits to our country’s leaders.
