Entrepreneurs like juvenile delinquents??

Here is an interesting article clip about the entrepreneur`s psyche:


Research by HarvardBusinessSchool psychology professor emeritus Abraham Zaleznik has unveiled a darker side to the entrepreneur`s psyche.


"Entrepreneurs tend to have a singular weakness that allows them to do things without checking their conscience," Zaleznik said. "Juvenile delinquents act and then try to sort things out afterward. I think entrepreneurs have this tendency."


Another academic researcher on the topic, professor Kelly Shaver of the College of William & Mary, told Forbes magazine in 2002 that successful entrepreneurs "really don`t care as much" about what other people think. "They`re just happy to go ahead and do what they`re doing."
