Carolyn Bate, Psychology graduate...

...talks about her ground-breaking research which shows that there could be increased numbers of psychopaths in senior managerial positions and high levels of business.

Carolyn Bate, aged 22, was still an undergraduate when she carried out her groundbreaking research into the links between psychopathy and intelligence, using a range of special tests and analysing the data.  She wrote up her findings for the final-year project in her BSc Psychology degree.  Not only was she awarded an exceptionally high mark of 85 per cent, her work has also been accepted for publication by the peer-reviewed Journal of Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology – an unusual distinction for an undergraduate.  In the video below Carolyn talks about her research.
