Is your boss a well-educated, well-dressed, ambitious and attractive person? Be careful, he may be a mental patient. The American psychologist Paul Babiak recently pointed out that not all mentally ill people are perverted murderers, and many of them have a normal job. In fact, in real life, because mental patients often have extraordinary desires for money, power, and sex, and they have strong language skills, the morbid characteristics of these mental illnesses are often seen as expressions of initiative and leadership. This also makes it easier for them to enter the top management level.
These people really cannot be called corporate leaders, but rather a group of “corporate psychopaths”. Psychologists suggest that many leaders have narcissistic tendencies, and that narcissists will go for high-stress, high-paying jobs. Although this kind of work may pose great risks, it can make their talents fully utilized, and it may bring them honor. This narcissist may become a legendary leader in the business world. Psychologist Michael McCorbie discovered and treated many narcissistic leaders and discovered that in the business world, as positions rise and competition pressures increase (of course, returns to income and fame are also getting higher). The more narcissistic leaders there are. They are characterized by dictatorship and are good at cultivating their own cronies. In the business world, they are often reformists. Their motivation is not to pursue perfection but to aspire to success. And because they don’t care what kind of impact their actions have on others, they always aggressively pursue goals, at all costs.
The current economic environment is a breeding ground for the support of this group of corporate mental patients. The endless supply of corporate downsizing, organizational reorganization, mergers and acquisitions, chaotic and rapidly changing environmental supplies are an endless source of stimuli to these thirsty psychopaths and provide an excellent cover for their evils. Of course, investors can’t get rid of their responsibilities, asking only performance for everything, requiring companies to continue to grow every quarter and year, and stock prices continue to rise, which also encourages the space for thoughtful people to operate. No one will be bothered to notice that all this is an empty illusion that has piled up one by one in the sky, and only then has watched his entire life be turned into a bubble.
If unfortunately your boss is really mentally ill, what should I do? 1. Believe in your intuition. Never be fooled by the role one plays; 2. Always remember the principle of “three.” A rumor or injury may be unintentional or misunderstood; a second offence is a serious mistake; if it occurs a third time, it is a true deception; 3. Refused to join illegal games. Never allow the boss to engage in illegal activities, let alone disguise him; 4. Do not blindly believe in authority. Hold on to the ruler in your heart. Once you find out that the boss has done something that violates your conscience, you should question it. 5. Do not mistake fear for respect. If the boss makes you scared, it is definitely not a boss worthy of your respect; 6. Find a better job. If you refuse, you should make up your mind to leave.
