    On Bloomberg this morning, it was reported that psychopaths make the best traders because supposedly they re/act with less emotion.

    Does anyone have a link to this article/study?

  7. Nitro/Electric.... no article in the world can justify your need for help from a professional. :D
     
  8. Wait do we "inhibit" our emotions or understand them and react accordingly by dealing/handling them.

    Or...

    are we "Functional Psychopaths....or have lesions on our brains...


    41 people tested with normal IQ's...

    I don't buy it...

    Lesions on the brain, eh? I'll have to look into that. I have no emotions, but I thought it was from years of conditioning.
