Not all those with psychopathic traits are dysfunctional

I am not trying to defend this particular person (who appears to be somewhat of a dysfunctional psychopath) but the traits themselves are no predictor of 'bad' behaviour (although the typical CEO search certainly seems to focus on those who do exhibit such behaviour).

The various traits described are certainly appropriate, but a key is whether the person can control those traits based on the situation.
