The Wisdom of Psychopaths begins with a few strikes against it First one suspects the publisher commissioned it as a knockoff of Jon Ronson's The Psychopath Test published a year earlier Second it's vaguely framed as a self help book although it never really commits to the conceptRegardless of the publisher's intention Kevin Dutton turns out to hold the better credentials—he's a research psychologist at Oxford University—and acuits himself well as a nonfiction author He can be forgiven for not being uite as fun as Ronson; few are Already familiar with the real life test of Ronson's title although I have not read his take on the subject I gave in to the wisdom hook and plowed aheadThe Wisdom of Psychopaths moves as uickly and entertainingly as any survey of research and literature can not just of psychopathy—which to me is inherently fascinating—but theories of personality in general and the experiments behind them I later read that Ronson had been criticized for taking some liberties with the research; in this way if Dutton's book was at all intended a follow on it seems less a me too entry and like a corrective by someone from the fieldDutton also makes a persuasive enough case that certain character traits associated with psychopathy—charm focus and fearlessness among others—can be advantageous if one can keep it in check For anyone who wants to get ahead unsurprisingly in business especially it can help to become something of a method psychopath Alas Dutton doesn't spend much time with that but if he writes that as a follow up I'll be there

The Wisdom of Psychopaths What Saints Spies and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About SuccessAme nerveless poise as a titan of industryDutton argues that there are indeed “functional psychopaths” among us different from their murderous counterparts who use their detached unflinching and charismatic personalities to succeed in mainstream society and that shockingly in some fields the “psychopathic” people are the likely they are to succeed Dutton deconstructs this often misunderstood diagnosis through bold on the ground reporting and original scientific research as he mingles with the criminally insane in a high security ward shares a drink with one of the world’s most successful con artist. Ironically both psychopaths and Tibetan monks detect deep emotions that are invisible to others Psychopaths are much better at recognizing “those telltale signs in the gait of traumatized assault victims” notes The Wisdom of Psychopaths author Kevin Dutton Tibetan monks steeped in meditative practice are also especially adept at reading feelings that are hidden from the rest of us Paul Ekman discovered Ekman is the preeminent expert on lying and on the six universally expressed emotions in the face — anger sadness happiness fear disgust and surprise Scarily psychopaths score especially high on the Hare Self Report Scale of psychopathy in seeing those core expressions especially the ones that make us most vulnerable fear and sadness according to Sabrina DemetrioffAnother astounding finding was that in lab tests a Tibetan monk had no startle reflex reaction to “a gun being fired just centimeters away from the ear the maximal threshold of human acoustical tolerance” reports Dutton yet others despite that finding Ekman and his co researchers Robert Levenson and Richard Davidson concluded according to Dutton that “practicing a relaxed state of mind” is conducive to “keeping a cool head at one time or another” Yet it appears that psychopaths don’t need that meditative practice to stay calm under pressure and or to be inordinately observant especially of weaknesses in others Psychopaths feel little or none of the arousal reactions heart beat sweat blood pressure etc that others have when viewing “a series of horrific nauseating and erotic images” found Dutton Like the monks psychopaths have greater self mastery of their emotions Unlike the monks however they seem to be born with this capacity to not feel nor reactThat may not be the most surprising conclusion from Dutton’s book howeverUnlike our common impression of psychopaths as dangerous serial killers and some are others use their high performing capacity to remain calm in stressful times to conduct surgery lead soldiers or become sought after CEOs After all as Dutton suggests if you’re having brain surgery wouldn’t you want someone who is not distracted by feelings and completely in control and concentrating on the operation If your life were in danger on the battlefield wouldn’t you want someone who could coolly survey the situation and deeply recognize others’ reactions to determine the best way to rescue you Psychopaths adept detection of vulnerability is one of their most potent skills See at
