From an article in The Independent:

"... My companion, a senior UK investment banker and I, are discussing the most successful banking types we know and what makes them tick. I argue that they often conform to the characteristics displayed by social psychopaths.

"To my surprise, my friend agrees. He then makes an astonishing confession: "At one major investment bank for which I worked, we used psychometric testing to recruit social psychopaths because their characteristics exactly suited them to senior corporate finance roles."

"Here was one of the biggest investment banks in the world seeking psychopaths as recruits."
