B-scan
 n.— «With New York psychologist Dr Paul Babiak, Prof Hare has developed a new 107-point questionnaire to identify which desks those smooth-talking “snakes in suits” might be hiding behind. The “B-Scan,” which stands for Business Scan, was designed by them. It follows on from the “P-Scan” which is now considered to be the standard test for detecting criminals with psychopathic leanings.» —“Spotting psychopaths at work” BBC News Dec. 1, 2004.
