PSYCHOPATH BEHAVIOR IS A PATTERN
At one point or another, everyone has been swept up in a moment of road rage or fantasizing about becoming a famous actor or app inventor. What differentiates most of us from being psychopaths is that these only occur once in a while. ‘[With a psychopath], these are things happening over and over again,’ Schug says.
‘It’s a personality disorder. The personality manifests at work, at school, with family, with friends, when they’re young, when they’re a teenager, when they’re an adult.’ Even if the office jerk might have you donning your psychoanalyst’s cap, by not observing a person in other aspects of their life, it’s impossible to see if their attitude might be evidence of a darker issue, or just ill temper at having to come to work.
