A look into the very distant past of human existence shows that some conditions are more conducive to leadership than others and that followers naturally prefer specific forms of leadership and resist other forms.

Destructive leadership entails the negative consequences that result from a confluence of destructive leaders, susceptible followers, and conducive environments. We review how destructive leadership has been discussed in the literature and note that it has not been clearly defined. Building on prior research, we develop a definition of destructive...

The key to success in business is money and people. Personality psychology is about people—it's about the nature of human nature. Some understanding of hu-man nature—and the ability to measure its key components—would seem to offer a huge advantage to applied psychologists. Despite its practical significance, per-sonality has lived a troubled exist...

Second, leadership is about the performance of teams, groups, and organizations. Good leade...
Article
In this commentary I attempt to extend the argument made by Atran and Norenzayan in two ways. First, I distinguish between the causes and the consequences of religious belief and speculate on the positive and negative consequences of religion. Second, I raise some questions about individual differences in religiosity and suggest that the origins of...
