Look we're not claiming that you and half your office are psychopaths if you work in law or sales, we're just saying psychopaths are also attracted to those jobs. 

We thought you might like to know. 

While psychopathy does not mean full blown serial killer, it is estimated that at least one per cent of the population display psychopathic characteristics. 

And new research has pin pointed the top ten careers for these individuals:

1. CEO

2. Lawyer

3. Media (TV/Radio)

4. Salesperson

5. Surgeon

6. Journalist

7. Police officer

8. Clergyperson

9. Chef

10. Civil Servant

CEO and lawyer we can get, but our friendly, neighbourhood priest? No, simply, no. 

"Psychopathy is not easily defined," said Professor Scott Lilienfed to the Sun.

"But most psychologists view it as a personality disorder characterised by superficial charm with profound dishonesty, callousness, and poor impulse control."

Good luck, everyone.

So at 19, we wanted to sleep until noon, spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to use the washing machine and wondering what the hell we were going to do with our lives. The only life goals we had was to figure out how we could lead lives vaguely similar to the cast of the OC or Gossip Girl

At 19, Elizabeth Holmes had dropped out of the prestigious Stanford University School Of Engineering in California to set up her own biotech company. 

We feel a tad inadequate. 

Elizabeth, who is now 31, has a her own company called Theranos which just so happens to be worth an estimated €8.5bn. 

To add to Elizabeth's pretty impressive CV, Barack Obama made her an official ambassador for global business marking her success in her sector. 

Many news organisations have labelled her the "Steve Jobs of the biotech industry," a comparison aided no doubt by Elizabeth's penchant for black turtlenecks. Furthermore, her company has been cited by The New York Times as changing the face of "the health-care paradigm as we know it." 

However, it has not always been smooth sailing for Elizabeth. A recent investigative report into the company and published by The Wall Street Journal implied that Theranos was over exaggerating the importance of their technology. 

With a serious amount of hype surrounding her, of course there could be a few bumps on the road yet for Elizabeth. Even billionaires got problems!

However, with the world at her feet and (literally) billions in the bank, we are defo adding her to our #careergoals list.

If you want a job that essentially doesn't require you to sleep under your desk (don't we all?!), then there are 25 gigs with particularly great hours that you should have on your radar. 

Glassdoor asked reviewers to rate their work/life balance on a scale from 0 to 5, and they found out some very interesting facts. 

With every year that goes by, the survey revealed that people are feeling less and less balanced every year. Back in 2009, the average rating was 3.5, but now it's down to 3.2. 

There are, however, some jobs that employees rate highly – like data scientists that ranked first on their list. They had the highest rating for a work/life balance, coming in at 4.2 out of 5. They also had the highest salary on the list, racking in nearly €155,000. 

Here's the top ten jobs, but you can check out the full 25 over here:

1. Data scientist

2. SEO manager

3. Talent acquisition specialist

4. Social media manager

5. Substitute teacher

6. Recruiting coordinator

7. UX designer

8. Digital marketing manager

9. Marketing assistant

10. Web developer

Butlers in the Buff is coming to Ireland, and they’re looking for recruits.

They are the world’s first naked butler company, and they come to your venue and serve you and your friends in nothing but a bow tie, cuffs, and an apron that shows their bum.

Lovely.

The company will be holding Skype interviews on Friday, and like the rest of us, they’re looking for “gorgeous, hardworking men with a great bottom”.

“We have quite a rigorous application process. They have to send in photographs which we have to vet.

“And then they fill in a form to test their personality. We want fun guys who are able to have a bit of conversation and banter with people.

“We want them to be well presented. As long as they keep themselves in great shape and have a bit of personality.

“It does what it says on the tin. We've expanded quite a lot and Dublin is the next place where we need more guys.

“It [the job] is perfect for earning extra income. We've got lots of people who work for us who have a day job and this fits in really nicely. They earn €30 per hour so it's quite lucrative.”

Hmmm… know anyone who might be interested?!
