But it would be another 20 years before they had sufficient research and data to back up this claim. By the s, we had data and everyone threw a party. Well… the extraverts threw a party.

And then people high in neuroticism got really anxious and fussed about what to wear. The point is, these five traits have since become known as the Big Five Personality Traits, and they are one of the most established and scientifically-driven measurements in the field of psychology. The Big Five are relatively stable over time.
They partially determine who you are, the choices you make, and how well you do in life. On average, extraverts experience more positive emotions, have wider social networks, and, likely as a result, make more money. People who are conscientious are healthier and live longer, probably because they wash their hands after they piss.
People with high levels of neuroticism struggle emotionally and are more likely to lose jobs, get divorced, and become depressed. People who are more open to experience tend to be creative, risk-taking, and political liberals.

People who are low in openness to experience tend to be politically conservative and bad at hosting orgies. But out of all of the Big Five Personality Traits, one of the five stands above them all in determining professional success: agreeableness. Or rather, a lack of agreeableness. In fact, I believe the world needs its fair share of assholes. And that being an asshole is a valuable life skill.
A logistical challenge: try to end the week on a positive note
That is, one side is totally willing to be disliked and the other is not. Run this situation millions of times over the course of multiple decades and you end up in a situation where assholes run the world. No surprise. The deal still gets done, but that deal will be sub-optimal because neither side pushed to the full extent of their capabilities. Therefore, a lot of value will be lost in the process.

The third situation is when two assholes come to a business negotiation. Both sides are totally willing to be disliked. And not only will they push for everything they need for the deal to be advantageous for them, but they will push even further. They will consciously antagonize the other side because they understand that antagonism wears people down and makes them capitulate more easily.
Strangely, this really, really unpleasant circumstance is the one that will produce the most optimal result. Both sides will likely push the deal so far that no one ends up happy with it. Both sides will feel like they lost but the resulting agreement will likely produce better results for both sides because they left no stone unturned in pursuing what is best for themselves.
So, yes, assholes run the world. And ever tried to break up with someone while not hurting their feelings? So most non-assholes just end up staying in bad relationships for way longer than they should. This is an uncelebrated skill. That is, assuming the asshole has a code of ethics. They lie, cheat, or steal to get their way.
The Etymology of the Top 7 Curse Words
Yes, these people are assholes. But they are also unethical. Yes, there is such thing as an ethical asshole.
And, I would argue, ethical assholes are national treasures. Some people are just naturally very disagreeable. But for those who are agreeable, learning to be an asshole is a skill that must be practiced. The same way an introvert must practice using extraverted skills when necessary, the agreeable person must learn to be disagreeable when necessary, lest they get walked over. Yeah, probably. What about to save your career? What about to promote a good cause you care about?
Unethical assholes are assholes because they care about themselves more than others. They are narcissistic and see the world only in terms of what benefits themselves. They are unethical because their cause is bad. Their sympathy for others is a tool that holds them back. I just got off the phone with a friend last night. I chewed him out for doing something pretty stupid that involved me. He felt awful. I feel awful that he feels awful. So I can bear it. Even Nintendo's guilty of the same thing.
If you labeled the older games, why can't you do the same with the newer ones? Who came along and said "Okay, we're going to have better graphics, better games, and, oh, those end labels gotta go.

When did this idea of simple convenience become obsolete? The Nerd: Now, about the 32X, hooking up this bastard is just insane. Believe it or not, like the Sega CD, it has its own fuckin' power adapter. That's great. I mean, now you got three. And trying to hook them all up at the same time is a friggin' nightmare. Let's look at the most minimum amount of effort it could possibly take. So, I'm plugging it into the TV, and now, I obviously can't plug in all three of these things. So, here's the most basic power strip you can get.
Every big store sells these things. These are common. So, I plug in my fucking power strip or whatever. Here goes the Genesis, the Sega CD, and What a load of fucking bullshit. How did they fuck this up so bad? I can't even turn it the other way because it doesn't fit. Why can I only plug in two power adapters? Why can't these go sideways?

Or, better yet, why the Hell do they have these box things? Why can't it just be like this? You know, that really pisses me off.
