    Chefs as psychopaths

    On the list of jobs with the most psychopaths. Chefs made a decent showing at #9.

    Agree, disagree, thoughts?

    They need to bump Chefs up on the list. #9 is kinda weak.
    Maybe Chefs make up for it with the intensity of their psychopathy.
    I wonder where clowns rank in the top 100?

    They're right there at #10, civil servants (politicians). I'd bet politicians, on their own, would be in the top three.

    Ok, I skimmed the wiki page. I Think psychopath is a mis diagnosis or most chefs. They are usually too good at planning things. I am going with masochist turned sadist with narcissistic personality disorder.

    As a former civil servant, I don't mind being called a psychopath. But to call me a politician is downright insulting!
