Psychometric testing was used in the US back in the 1950s to ensure that new managers had exactly the same personality as their predecessor has.

I read a very interesting comment about Jack Welch, the CEO of General Electric, at http://freewill.typepad.com/genetics/20 ... verts.html

"The reason Welch rose to become CEO is his ability to wear masks, or choose his attitude at will. (That's one of the rare genetic traits for which he's so highly paid.) He knows how to motivate people, and push their buttons. Some people are motivated by being yelled at. Some are motivated by guilt. Some are motivated by money or power. A good leader knows that, and can choose his own mask for the situation.

What leaders seem to ignore is that others simply can't choose to be this way. Our brains are not wired to allow us to smile at will. My favorite example is selective mutism, whereby someone cannot choose to speak in public, no matter how hard they try. Because leaders don't have this gene, they don't see how others differ from themselves. They figure everyone else can chose their mask, just like they do."

I have wondered if there is some correlation between people who have a good ability to "wear masks" and people with psychopathic tendencies.

    Sounds like an exercise in doublethink.

      Not quite.

      The ability to wear masks like Jack Welch does is a strongly neurotypical trait. In the early 80s he laid off so many people from General Electric that he earned the nickname of Neutron Jack. I have suspected he could have some psychopathic traits as well.

      Another possible candidate for scrutiny is Nick Griffin.
