New Jersey Ranked #3 In The Country For Most Psychopaths
So many jokes come to mind...and yet....there is not a lot of time to make them because apparently the psychos are everywhere!
So New Jersey ranked pretty high but not on the best list that is out there.
The Garden State was ranked #3 in the country for the most psychopaths.
Researchers looked into the levels of five personality traits: extroversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism and openness to experience in each state.
So whichever state had the most residents with the highest levels of the personality traits that are more commonly found in psychopaths made it to the top of the list for this study!
"Boldness corresponds to low neuroticism and high extraversion, meanness corresponds to low agreeableness and disinhibition corresponds to low conscientious," said Southern Methodist University professor Ryan Murphy.
Here is a look at the top 5:
1. Connecticut - because that is where all the crazy stories come from?
2. California - I can see this
3. New Jersey - kind of insulted
4 and 5. New York and Wyoming (Tied) - HOW DID NEW YORK NOT RANK HIGHER THAN US?!
Okay... I am going to say what we are all thinking: I CALL RIGGED!
And once again....if we are that crazy, then maybe you shouldn't flock to our beaches during the warm weather. How do you like them apples?
