THE WISDOM OF PSYCHOPATHS AN AUDIENCE WITH DR KEVIN DUTTON PROFESSOR OF PSYCHOLOGY OXFORD UNIVERSITY.

Bingley Arts Centre, Thursday 30th April 2020

PSYCHOPATH.

No sooner is the word out than images of murderers, rapists, suicide bombers and gangsters flash across our mindsBut unlike their box-office counterparts, not all psychopaths are violent, or even criminal. Far from it. In fact, they have a lot of good things going for them. Psychopaths are fearless, confident, charismatic, ruthless and focused – qualities tailor-made for success in twenty-first-century society and found in Special Forces soldiers, top business people, and among the highest echelons of elite sport and on April 30th you will hear all about this AND MORE from the renowned Oxford psychologist Kevin Dutton.

As the talk unfolds Kevin reveals tricks of the psychological trade we never dreamt existed along with a shocking truth: that those who go where angels fear to tread often have more in common than you might think with the demons they rub shoulders with and that beneath the hype and the popular characterization psychopaths have something to teach us.

Kevin is the author of four best-selling books:
Flipnosis – The Art of Split Second Persuasion (2010);

The Wisdom of PsychopathsLessons in Life from Saints, Spies and Serial Killers (2012);

The Good Psychopath’s Guide To Success – How To Use Your Inner Psychopath To Get The Most Out of Life (2014); and Sorted – The Good psychopath’s Guide To Bossing Your Life (2015) the latter two co-written with Andy McNab.

His work has been translated worldwide into over twenty-five languages and his writing and research has been featured in Scientific American, New Scientist, The Guardian, The Times, Psychology Today, The New York Times, TheWall St Journal, The Washington Post, Newsweek, Slate, USA Today and others.

Kevin also devised the groundbreaking ‘Everyday Psychopathy’ survey which over three and a half million people have since completed. It is one of the largest scientific internet surveys ever conducted. On the night every audience member will have the chance to do this survey.

In the summer of 2017, having profiled Donald Trump as being high on the psychopathic spectrum in a cover feature article for Scientific American Mind, he was receiving, on average, around ten death threats a week from irate Trump supporters. One included a picture of him in a gas chamber with Trump in an SS uniform hitting the button. It now occupies pride of place on his office door in Oxford.

Warming to the task of treading dangerously, the following summer Kevin was then invited on to Good Morning Britain by Piers Morgan to see if Piers was a psychopath. To many people’s surprise, he wasn’t.

In addition to his academic research and his public engagement activities, Kevin also acts as a consultant within both the public and private sectors. His clients come from a wide range of fields including senior corporate management, elite sport, and military intelligence.
