Group Description

The group is intended to provide help and assistance for people bullied at work. Please treat everyone with dignity and respect. To avoid spamming, the first posts of new members are moderated so your first post may be subject to a short delay. Please try to trim posts that you are replying to. This makes replies easier to read especially for members using daily digest message delivery. The group owner is David (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Penbat).

In 2005, psychologists Belinda Board and Katarina Fritzon at Surrey University, UK, interviewed and gave personality tests to high-level British executives and compared their profiles with those of criminal psychiatric patients at Broadmoor Prison, UK. They found that 3 out of 11 personality disorders (histrionic, narcissistic & obsessive-compulsive) were actually more common in the executives than the patients. They described the business people as successful psychopaths and the criminals as unsuccessful psychopaths. See "Disordered personalities at work. Psychology, Crime and Law, 11, 17-32"
