DC has more psychopaths than any other place in country, study finds
WASHINGTON (ABC7) —
Washington, D.C. has more psychopaths than any other location in the United States, a recent study by the Southern Methodist University found.
The university studied five personality traits they called the "big five" -- extraversion, agreeableness, openness, conscientiousness and neuroticism.
"The presence of psychopaths in the District of Columbia is consistent with the conjecture that psychopaths are likely to be effective in the political sphere," Research Assistant Professor Ryan H. Murphy stated in the study.
Furthermore, the study found that Virginia ranked as number eleven and Maryland number twelve.
