There's a big (and rather scary) difference between someone who is kind of mean or a little off, and someone who is void of feeling and only wants you to suffer. According to <a href='http://psychologicalhealingcenter.com/portfolio/dr-judy-rosenberg/'>Judy Rosenberg</a>, PhD, an LA-based <a href='https://www.amazon.com/Be-The-Cause-Healing-Disconnect/dp/1514793032'>psychologist and author</a> whose <a href='https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fA6T3JalT8I'>valued professional input</a> has appeared on major outlets like CBS News and CNN, a psychopath is someone who can severely threaten your well-being, physically and/or emotionally.

And they're not easy to spot, either—<a href='https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/mindmelding/201706/what-is-psychopath'>many of them are normal or even quite charming</a>.) 'There's a quality of the worse you feel, the better he feels,' she says. 'Somebody who's a true psychopath has absolutely no empathy at all.' Some marked features of a true psychopath, as she explains it, are severe paranoia, a high degree of narcissism, intense projection of rage or insecurity on others, and a general penchant for sadism. To put it bluntly, Dr. Rosenberg says, 'They don't mind cutting your jugular.' 9 Things to Do If Your Boss Is a Psychopath

Every Trader Joe’s Location Opening in 2018 (So Far)

  Every Trader Joe’s Location Opening in 2018 (So Far) This is just the beginning. While we’d travel further to shop at Trader Joe’s than pretty much any other grocery store, having one right around the corner is certainly preferred.

Washington Ave. Though those are the only four locations that Trader Joe’s has announced, we’re pretty confident there will be more to come.

Ask this question if your boss provides a positive feedback on your performance. Don’t hesitate to ask your boss about your future career opportunities in the company. 12 . Ask anything else you want to know

Why to ask it: You will most likely be having a year-end review so you might as well get ahead of the game and ask this question. It shows that you are continuing to think ahead as well as think about how you can help your teammates - and the company - win.

And most importantly, they are brave and manage up!
