Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why Do People Follow Bad Leaders?
Most of us want our leaders to be strong and confident, but too many of us confuse arrogance and narcissism for strength. That is wrong. Research clearly shows that the very worst leaders - those who become tyrants - are very narcissistic and arrogant.
The flip side is: Why do people not follow apparently good leaders? Perhaps "being" emphatically non-arrogant, non-narcissistic, non-charismatic, non-manipulative leaves you without a chance to be trusted with leadership. Nice leaders gonna be very slow learners?

At a finance conference in San Francisco, a billionaire jerk just made a sexist comparison.
