The Psychopath Capital Of America Is…

June 18, 2018

The arena of politics is a wild one y’all, but science has discovered it’s even wilder than we thought.

A study has ranked Washington D.C. as the place with the highest concentration of psychopaths in America. The traits of psychopathy are characterized as antisocial behavior, impaired empathy and egotistical tendencies.

That’s not even remotely surprising if you watch the news these days, because it definitely takes a certain type of person to be able to handle working in politics...but what about the rest of the United States?

Economist Ryan Murphy’s research estimates the amount of psychopaths distributed across America and he found that Connecticut is the state with the most psychopaths per capital. They’re followed by California, New Jersey, New York and Wyoming.

The least psychopathic states are West Virginia, Vermont, Tennessee, North Carolina and New Mexico.
