How can businesses deal with psychopathic employees? Dr. Paul Babiak, co-author of “Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work,” explains.
Are most workplace psychopaths able to empathize at all?
Dr. Paul Babiak: Lack of empathy, remorse and guilt are some of the defining features of a psychopath, whether they are incarcerated, out in public or working for an organization.
So, I would say they are incapable of feeling any empathy for those they manipulate. They also do not feel any loyalty to their companies or teams, despite a persona (mask) that portrays them otherwise.
