Anyone who has spent a couple hours in the Old Pro could tell you this.
Hacker News is a particularly good place to look for psychopaths:
A few months ago we tested 5,000+ folks for psychopathy via Hacker News by asking them to agree/disagree with statements like “Success is based on survival of the fittest; I’m not concerned about the losers”.
Fun factoid #1: Startup founders tend to be more psychopathic than people in other positions.
Fun factoid #2: Windows users tend to be more psychopathic than Mac users. Linux users are less psychopathic the previous two groups.
Fun factoid #3: Chrome users have a higher psychopathy score than Firefox users.
