Guilt Indicates Good Leadership


People with a tendency to feel guilty are potential leaders. According to the study "Uneasy Lies the Head That Wears the Crown" by psychologists Rebecca Schaumberg and Francis Flynn, guilt indicates a "sense of responsibility for the well-being and socio-economic condition of others." That writes

Nearly 250 people were confronted with scenarios designed to invoke guilt. People with a greater tendency to feel guilty were considered better potential leaders by their peers. These same people then took a number of personality tests. This also showed that those most prone to guilt came out the best in the tests.
