Is your boss a psychopath? Fast Company just published an 8-question quiz to help you decide.
Of course, if you’ve got one, you probably don’t need a quiz to know it.
Avoiding psycho bosses is yet another benefit of self-employment, which I think I’ve mentioned that I love. The self-employed simply don’t have to deal with bosses from hell. (Unfortunately, a few of us probably become one, but that’s another story.)
Sure, now and then a client might fit the profile. Every small businessperson has encountered the Client from Hell. Luckily, they usually give themselves away before it’s time to sign on the dotted line. And if you do find yourself dealing with one, you can bail out as soon as the first assignment is complete.
That’s much harder to do when the psycho is your boss, and providing 100% of your income.
