Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders?

Oh, would you look at that! Another way in which I beat the curve. The most effective groups in the cuilverse are led by women and/or those who are humble and competent rather than narcissistic and ignorantly confident.

“In sum, there is no denying that women’s path to leadership positions is paved with many barriers including a very thick glass ceiling. But a much bigger problem is the lack of career obstacles for incompetent men, and the fact that we tend to equate leadership with the very psychological features that make the average man a more inept leader than the average woman. The result is a pathological system that rewards men for their incompetence while punishing women for their competence, to everybody’s detriment.”
