Why are jerks successful?

A great post on the lessons jerks can teach us. (The lessons are bold, the irritating implementation follows.) Here’s a couple:

They are almost incapable of being embarrassed. They bounce back from setbacks that would send the rest of us to bed for several days. They are willing to be obnoxious until they get what they want. They know the power that comes with caring less.

They let upper management know about their accomplishments. They advertise every minor accomplishment while those schmoes who believe that hard work is its own reward don’t.
