“Nice guys do not necessarily finish last, but they do finish a distant second in terms of earnings,” according to one study.

Stories abound of notoriously difficult CEOs, but it doesn’t mean you have to be a brute to be a success. Perhaps it’s time to just accept that jerks are jerks, and while there may be some corollary to their pay and success,…
  • given the cost of worker absenteeism and workplace bullying, no. The cost of letting bullies define success is too high a cost of the many for the few


  • Just look at mgt anywhere.
    Only about 1 in 100 can be classified as human and all rightwingers.
  •   Since when does politics have anything to do with that?
  •  Seems to me rightwing is also a state of mind.
  • It’s just the opposite.
    There is no room for ideology in business. It works or it does not. Only in government or unions can they waste time hiring and keeping people who don’t work. That’s where you see the largest support for the progressive ideology.


  • What doesn’t work outside an organization – a sense of fairness, teamwork, community values – often works inside an organization because most organizations are focused on short-term gains. Organizations value the individual, not the collective, and so will value someone who puts the organization (i.e. themselves) ahead of their personal life (if they have a personal life) by spending more time at work, as well as those who already enjoy a measure of social capital with friends they have collected in upper management; they can then spend time putting the noses of others to the grindstone, using themselves as an ‘example’ to others (“look what I’m doing for the organization, etc.”), and coupling this with unreasonable demands until they manipulate others into supporting them. Once they shore up collective support for their individual status, they coast on a wave of privilege and extra money.
  •  Maybe nice people define success in a different way than just making money or being the top of the of hierarchy….
    • Absolutely
    • I couldn’t disagree more. I think that it is one of the TRAITS of being a jerk, not the act of being a jerk, that results in success. That trait is a reduced need for validation. As a generality, “Nice” people need lots of validation. This means they try to conform and they make concessions in order to be agreeable.
      Jerks don’t care if you tell them their ideas won’t work. Nor will they care if you are a net loser in the deal. They don’t care because they don’t need your validation. This in turn results in jerks being innovators and entrepreneurs because they are willing to break the mold and don’t care about your opinion. Thus, Steve Jobs.
      I am not sure it makes a difference in the end to the outcome.
      But I think that a lot of jerks are unsuccessful because they didn’t heed the warnings and because people were not willing to help them when they needed help later.
      I would hazard a guess that nice averages out higher than being a jerk. But that’s just my observation.
  • Save it, the reality is that you have to walk all over people to climb the ladder. If you are nice and do your job, then you will keep your position at work, but you won’t get that high up the ladder.
