Congratulations? I'm not sure if that's the right thing to say but Wisconsin has made the top ten list, and this time not for drinking states. According to this study, Wisconsin has secured it's spot near the top in terms of psychopaths living in the state.

This study was done by Social Science Research Network, and also shared by Men's Health Magazine. The study looks at the "Big 5" in personality traits. Those traits are:

  • agreeableness
  • extraversion
  • openness
  • conscientousenss
  • neurotism

The levels of those traits were studied and calculated.  Certain markers and combinations of those levels can identify psychopath tendencies.  While there really isn't a definition for psychopathy, it's generally described as anti social disorder.  Basically a lack of remorse or empathy for others.

According to this study, Wisconsin ranked #8 in the continental 48th.  The #1 place?  Washington, D.C., which is home to most of our politicians. It's no wonder they don't always look out for us.

Minnesota scored relatively low on the list at #33, so that will sure be fuel for the border battle fight.
