Who writes history Those who control the media and the winners of any conflict This is a summary of some of history s greatest and worst leaders It reads much like a dissertation only without statistical data to support the hypothesis but plenty of anecdotal which is soft data The author asserts that the best leaders in war and other stress were on the bipolar spectrum The worst leaders under stress were mentally stableMany of the examples used are self proclaimed sufferers of depression or other mood disorder Others suffered from a physical malady which when treated medically led to an unstable mood Or a sexually transmitted disease which produced an atypical mood At any rate the author suggests that a depressed person is likely to exhibit realism a manic person has enhanced creativity and a depressed person feels empathy I agree to some degree that this is true only I wouldn t put these people directly on the mental illness scale An awake person expresses greater creativity while a depressed poet produces depressing poetry which is not in a manic stage A person who has experienced life not necessarily depression might already know they don t control the world but how they react to circumstancesA few months ago I read The Psychopath Test which empowered those trained in this checklist to diagnose a psychopath In short order the checklist ualified most of the population as exhibiting psychopathic personalities As a graduate student in psychology I read my new DSM III R and diagnosed myself with no less than 58 psychological disorders Once informed of the uses of the DSM and realizing it is only the extremes that interfere with regular interactions and work my list dropped to only two One when I wasn t PMS ingIt is much easier to find episodic personality traits and pigeon hole a historical leader into a mental illness especially if that person is dead and unable to refute the diagnosis It is also known that psychiatry and psychology is a soft science Not that I don t respect the field because I do On the other hand the new diagnosis is Pervasive Developmental Disorder or the Autism Spectrum Now all the uirky kids who have a less than ideal awareness of social appropriate behavior can be shoved onto this broad spectrum and receive a 504 plan excusing angry outbursts at school rather than accepting conseuences for acting out and hurting other children Ten years ago these same children were being diagnosed with anxiety and depression and treatment reflected that diagnosisThe author s hypothesis is an interesting one but left me feeling like the hypothesis was not settled My belief is that mood disorders or mental instability is not a good predictor of leadership skills I didn t see the connection as the author presented the information I wanted to be convinced with hard evidence but instead I was underwhelmed
