Sadly, my own observations at university corroborate this narrative.
Agreeablness and Income correlate negative.

You read that correctly; Compassion and Wealth correlate negatively.

Selifsh, cruel, disagreeable people make more money than selfless, compassionate, agreeable people.

The relationship IS CAUSAL, it's not just correlation.

...
Disagreeable people get paid more money for the same jobs, than agreeable people, because they negotiate more aggressively when it comes to salary.
They are also more willing to harm others for their own gain than agreeable people are, which can often enable them to make more money than an agreeable person would; there are many lucrative business opportunities that can only be executed by inflicting harm upon others.

Nothing makes me suspect that a man is psychologically weak faster, than self proclaimed declarations of how strong he is.
I have known men who are exceptionally psychologically strong.

These are men who have been in war-zones, gotten shot, watched their friends die, and lived to tell about it.

ZERO of them walk around making proclamations of how strong or tough they are.
I have dealt with plenty of narcissistic/sociopathic men.

I have also dealt with combat veterans.

There is almost zero overlap in their personalities.

The former group endlessly makes self proclaimed declarations of their strength and greatness.

The latter group never does.

"Osama bin Laden is far less reprehensible...than Trump." -Sam Harris

People have intentionally, and unintentionally, misrepresented what this quote means.

...
Harris was making the point that Bin Laden was an ideologue who delusionally believed he was making the world a better place, while Trump is motivated purely by *selfish desire for power*; nothing more...
Trump never believed he was making the world a better place; it's purely selfish personal interest.

THREAD:

The Recipe For Success
There is a recipe for Success.

To be clear, 'Success' means

-Getting Rich (High Net Worth/Income)
-Attaining High Status In The Macro Dominance Hierarchy
-Seizing Power

----

The recipe is *not* optimistic; it mostly boils down to being born into the correct circumstances.
1: Be Born In A 1st World Country (Hopefully In The 20th/21st Century)
2: Be Born Into A Wealthy Family
3: Be Born With The Genetics To Have A High IQ

Donald Trump displayed every warning sign of being a narcissistic man who is ludicrously egotistical, and who has poor impulse control; precisely the sort of human who cannot be trusted to make good decisions about complicated problems that come with high stress levels.

...
The fact that many otherwise intelligent people looked at Trump and said

"This is the sort of man we can trust to make good decisions, about incredibly complicated problems, that come with very high stress levels"

is horrifying.
There are many intelligent investment bankers in America who supported Donald Trump.

This was shocking.

If I walked into a job interview, to get hired as an associate to serve under these investment bankers, and I appeared to be half as impulsive as Trump...they would reject me

I don't care whether immigrants are legal or illegal.

I care about whether they are productive or unproductive.

Import Productive Immigrants

Deport Unproductive Immigrants
IQ is a proxy for productivity.

Generally speaking, high IQ people are economically valuable, while low IQ people are economically useless.
"CM, there are lots of unproductive native born citizens."

Good point.

Deport Them Too

The Wealth Inequality In America

Is Not Sustainable

More Intense Inequality Causes More Violence

Every Society Has A FINITE Degree Of Inequality

That It Can Tolerate

Before Getting Ripped Apart By Violence

America Is Dangerously Close To Hitting This Point
Unlike 99.9% of humans, I am not an ideologue.

I don't care about ideology or 'principles'.

I care about REAL WORLD AVAILABLE OPTIONS, REAL WORLD BENEFITS, AND REAL WORLD COSTS.

Consequentialism is the correct ideology.
Some degree of wealth redistribution IS NECESSARRY to prevent the inequality in America from becoming so intense that it rips our society apart.

Raise Taxes On The Rich (raise capital gains taxes)

Give Free Stuff To The Poor (universal basic income)
