Too much power

People in power display the same tendencies as the mentally ill.

Study after study shows people in power develop sociopathic behavior. An antisocial personality disorder becomes part of their operating system.

They’re more impulsive, self-centered, reckless, arrogant and rude than average. They’re more likely to cheat on their spouses, become less attentive to other people and less interested in others’ perspectives.

They’re also more shameless, often failing to manifest the one facial phenomenon that makes human beings unique among primates.

They can no longer blush.
