Should we try to please everyone? I do not think we can please everyone. I do believe some jerks have desirable attitudes that is why most of them are successful in business. But I do think also that the top is the loneliest place to be when you have stepped on people's toes along the way , just to go directly to the top.

You need to be a smart jerk to succeed in any business :)

I remember reading a study that those who act like jerks are seen as being more powerful, confident, and competent than those who act more pleasant.

That is true, but there are better ways to do it than becoming a "jerk".

I have seen some jerks succeeding online like Donald Trump but I wouldn't agree with steve Job being a jerk because he had truly shown the world what it takes to succeed online.

Thanks for sharing!

You don't have to be a jerk, but you should stand up for your ideas! In some eyes that would bee seen as a rude behavior, but I don't care about that! ;)

Lyceum - Excellent point. That is exactly what I want to convey. You do need to be tough and stand up for your vision without being a "jerk" as described in the article.
