Rebellious Psychopaths May Also Be Creative Geniuses

If you are able to switch off your empathy, find yourself making highly impulsive decisions, and tend to not feel remorse too strongly, you’re likely to be somewhat psychopathic. It’s one of the dark triad of personality traits, with Machiavellianism (the ability to manipulate others) and narcissism (self-obsessiveness) being the other two.

In fact, as numerous studies have shown, being a psychopath can be quite advantageous, as long as you’re able to be fairly Machiavellian at the same time. Intriguingly, however, this new study shows that being an uninhibited psychopath could boost your creative spark.
