We’ve previously covered how personality traits such as narcissism can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of a leader. Can a CEO’s facial shape also help us predict the success of a company? Yes, according to a research article that will appear Psychological Science. Some key points of the research include:

- Wider faces tend to correlate with more aggression in men, and a greater incidence of unethical behaviour.
- The relationship between facial width and aggression is not seen in women.
