Bridgewater Associates founder Ray Dalio gave a 1-hour personality test to today's biggest innovators: Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Reed Hastings, and others.




They did well when it came to being assertive, open-minded, and having a big vision for their companies.




They all scored low in one key category: "Concern for others."

What does it take to be a titan of industry? Independent thinking, resiliency, and passion — and apparently, not letting someone's upset feelings get in the way of achieving a vision.
This was a lesson hedge-fund billionaire Ray Dalio spotted after giving a one-hour personality test to top tech leaders like Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Bill Gates, who all scored poorly in the "Concern for Others" category.
The anecdote comes from Dalio's best-selling book, "Principles." In 2011, Dalio was beginning a seven-year transition out of his founder-leader role at Bridgewater Associates, currently the world's largest hedge-fund with $150 billion in assets under management. He writes that there was a vacuum left after his departure, which he called the "Ray gap." He was worried that his company would flounder without him. To find out exactly what was missing from Bridgewater in his absence, he sent out a test to other CEOs and company founders to find their defining qualities.
