Event description

Several years ago, University of Oxford psychologist Kevin Dutton invited former SAS soldier Andy McNab into his lab to take a real-life version of Blade Runner’s Voight-Kampff ‘replicant’ test. The results were revelatory and from it the concept of ‘the good psychopath’ was born. Join them both to find out what happened next…

About the speakers

Kevin Dutton is a research psychologist at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford.He is particularly interested in psychopathic personality disorder and his research focuses on how certain functional psychopathic personality variables may predispose individuals to flourish in certain areas.

Andy McNab is a former SAS soldier whose military career was so successful that he was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier by the time he left the SAS. And now he is a bestselling author, using his background to inform his writing.

Kevin and Andy are the joint authors of 'Sorted! the Good Psychopath's Guide to Bossing Your Life', showing how a 'good' psychopath approach could make you more succesful in all areas of life.
