That's Mister Psycho Boss to You, Bub

Ron gets a poorly adjusted no-prize for bringing us news that your boss might actually be more than just an a-hole:
Is your boss a charming, well-educated and polished leader intent on climbing the career ladder? If so, he could be a psychopath, psychologists gathered in Stockholm said.
So moving into management doesn't just make you stupid, it makes you crazy too. Lovely!
eMail this entry!
Because anyone who tries to be any kind of leader in any kind of field is obviously crazy, or at least criminally insensitive to those who don't have as much ability as the "leaders" (an imperialist colonialist social construct if ever there was one) have. Only suffocating bureaucracy can hope to save us from the horrible psychopathic "leaders" that keep driving our corporations to ever greater feats of research and engineering.
"Stockholm syndrome" was named that way for a reason, folks.
If your boss is a psychologist, however, everything will be fine. /sarcasm
