Some have asked the question regarding our most recent article: Personality Analytics: Technology CEOs Analyzed – “what does it mean?”
Let’s contemplate one example as depicted in the enclosed picture which plots the 56 Mid-Cap Software CEOs we reviewed against the personality trait “Openness“. The output is that the two CEOs who scored in the 99th percentile (Ryu of Guidewire Software, “GWRE” and Marr of Tyler Technologies, “TYL”) are:
1.) less likely to suffer stalled revenue growth on their watch;
2.) less likely to allow their products and services to become stale;
3.) less likely to be disrupted by a competitor or new market entrant;
4.) less likely to see their respective customers move elsewhere and/or become disintermediated from customers;
5.) more likely to adopt new technology to deliver their respective products and services;
6.) more likely to identify adjacent market opportunities..
..as compared to the Mid-Cap Software CEO universe we analyzed (56 CEOs in total), all else held equal.
