"Our data revealed that many successful entrepreneurs exhibited aggressive behavior and got in trouble as teenagers. This is the person who wasn't afraid to break the rules, take things by force, or even be involved in minor drugs."

YEAH, but they weren't murdering, drug pushing thugs...you idiots! Big difference between a fist fight, and someone breaking some minor rule, and THUGS!!!

Actually... my very head strong (ie: bratty) 2 year old was in a doctor’s office waiting room and acting herself (bratty) while I tried unsuccessfully to get her to calm down.

An old woman said “Don’t worry, she’ll be running a multi-million dollar corporation one day.”

This was in 1995, so before the study. I hope this lady is right. Ironically, my quiet middle child ended up being the one to worry about during teen years and my oldest (bratty one, although still a bratty streak) is the one who is doing well. (SO FAR! FINGERS CROSSED)

My brother taught a business class at a ‘continuation’ high school one time, in the 90s. He said the students were very motivated because they sincerely wanted to learn how to make money. They were very practical as well. He thought they had good potential for success in the business world, if they continued to work toward it.

If they are high-IQ kids who are bored out of their skulls at school, so they act up. And if the parents don’t let them get put on ritalin.

If you know your kid is “bad”, they probably wont be the next overnight billionaire.

Yes, lots of people who think outside the box tend to break rules but it's the ones who DON'T get caught that end up being successful.
