“Are Smart People Overrated?”


General Culture

Under the provocing title “Are Smart People Overrated?” Malcom Gladwell in New Yorker magazine discusses whether smart people are good or bad for companies: “The talent myth assumes that people make organizations smart. More often than not, it’s the other way around.” Given my personal experience, I have to agree with this. It’s an interesting read for everybody - even for people who think they’re smart!
