What are Psychopaths and How do they exist in a corporate world
What are Psychopaths and How do they exist in a corporate world? The media may portray the psychopath as a crazed serial killer - the stuff of nightmares and horror films - but the reality is chillingly different. Not all psychopaths are violent criminals and fewer still have a desire to eat you for dinner. Many are highly successful businessmen and women, lawyers, academics, politicians, doctors and teachers. Psychopaths wear suits too... The Mental Health Act 1983 (HMSO 1983) described psychop

Until this time smoking was a male orientated pastime. A change in democracy enabled the newly emancipated women to take up the trend of smoking which enraged society as women used cigarettes as a fashion statement.

Each study has its own unique contribution to what is understood and considered to be known about the way we live, love and work.
