Would you hire a genius? I didn't think so.

Dr Satoshi Kanazawa claims that crooks and geniuses do their best work by their 30's. So, I wonder how many make it in the corporate world.

I recently recruited a candidate at the Director level. He's earning a substantial salary and I think the guy's great. But he won't make it to first base with my client -- because he's only 30 years old. "The other managers won't give him any credibility." is the line.

Kanazawa thinks that testosterone forces men to do great things to impress women. And, once they get married that urge wanes. So, listen folks, you gotta get 'em while they're hot.
