We love Type A’s. They’re smart, ambitious, “can-do” people who inspire us to hustle, shed a bit of old-fashioned sweat, and shove right past any naysayers.
But let’s be honest. Like rocket fuel, Type A’s can be extremely volatile. When these highly accomplished individuals implode, go nuts or do something stupid, we frequently ask, “What were they thinking?!”
They were thinking what they have always thought. It is human nature to stick with what works until proven otherwise and no one will argue that louder or longer than a Type A superstar.
Bad news. When Type A’s move into jobs where success requires juggling elephants and herding tigers, this default thinking can turn a top gun talent into a flopperoo.
Want to argue about it? You just proved our point.
