I was wrong: Forex traders are worse than Psychopaths!

For those of you reading this blog and who are aware that I have likened John Key and other Wall street banksters and Forex traders with psychopaths, it seems I was wrong! According to a Swiss study traders are far worse than psychopaths.

Here is their story: They compared 24 known psychopaths with a back up group of  “normal” people and it turns out that the control group which consisted of Stock guys, FX/commodities traders and derivative types was far worse than the group of psychopaths in their penchant for destruction.

What do you reckon the chances of a nice normal giving loving sort of person to rise to the top in an environment like that? Just think about it. John Key was right there at the top with corrupt souls like Robert Rubin, Alan Greenspan and Larry Summers. Still feel she’ll be right with him at the helm over here promising growth?

Just in case you’re wondering here is your Psycho check list:

1. Considerable superficial charm, verbal facility and average or above average intelligence.


2. Unreliability, disregard for obligations, no sense of responsibility.


3. Untruthfulness and insincerity.


4. Inexplicable impulsiveness.


5. Antisocial behavior.


6. Poor judgment and failure to learn from experience.


7. Total self-centeredness.


8. General poverty of deep and lasting emotions.


9. Lack of any true insight, inability to see oneself as others do.

10. Fantastic and objectionable behavior, after drinking and sometimes even when not drinking–vulgarity, rudeness, quick mood shifts, pranks.


11. An impersonal, trivial, and poorly integrated sex life.
