The Discovermag website has an interesting article titled:
Into the Mind of a Psychopath
The article discusses the life long challenge which Dr. Robert Hare had set out for himself. That being trying to understand Psychopaths.
Psychopaths and Narcissists share a number of key traits. Both lack empathy for others. Both can be extraordinarily charming The charm is used to get the victim to lower their natural fight or flight defenses. The charm reels the victim in for Narcissistic Supply or Sadistic Pleasure. Both have no remorse for what they do to their victims.
The article is a good read about one of the pioneers into the research on Psychopaths. Robert Hare was the first to use MRI Imaging to show brain scans of Psychopaths.

The following are some helpful resources about Psychopaths and Psychopaths in Workplaces.
The Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised is sometimes used as a standard instrument for researchers and clinicians, especially in forensic settings such as prisons or high secure psychiatric units.
The following is the description of the “The Pocket Psycho” as posted on Amazon’s page:
Clinical psychopaths exist in a variety of workplaces. They are individuals who manipulate their way through life and leave an indelible mark on both their victims and society. They are destructive men and women: cunning, self-centered, ruthless, and terrifying. Featuring a range of case studies as well as frequently asked questions, this is a guide to learning how to identify workplace psychopaths. Advice is also offered on working with and managing a psychopath in order to make the workplace a safe and tolerable environment.
