How Snakes In Suits Make Money

Robert D. Hare has met a few real-life Hannibal Lecters.

Lecter was the sophisticated psychopath in the film, Silence of the Lambs. He was a social genius who sometimes ate his victims. Dr. Hare, a psychology professor at the University of British Columbia says, “The first one [psychopath] I met at a maximum security prison in Canada stared at me so hard I felt like I was being pushed up against the wall.”

In their book, Snakes In Suits: When Psychopaths Go To Work, Dr. Hare and co-author Dr. Paul Babiak say psychopaths are, “known for their ability to don many masks, change ‘who they are’ depending on the person whom they are interacting, and make themselves appear likable to their intended victim.”
