question for Dr. Vaknin

Postby Sunkist » Tue May 13, 2014 2:48 am

Hello Dr. Vaknin,

I'm bothered by something- and what's bothering me is that I never considered this question before:

When a 'P' has chosen a career field that gives the person the 'upper-hand' over others- the ability to use their job to harm innocent, vulnerable people- how likely is it that this is the reason they chose that particular career in the first place?

Thank you for any input on this topic.
