David Brooks gets it, for once:

"Grinds, on the other hand, tend to have started their own company or their own hedge fund. They’re often too awkward to work in a large organization and too intense to work for anybody but themselves.

[. . . .]

In finance, as in other realms of business life, social polish doesn’t always go with capitalist success. Often it is the most narrow, intense, awkward people who start the best companies, employ the most people and create the most value.

[. . . .]

[M]aybe the real issue is how we are going to light a fire under the country’s loners, its contrarians and its narrow, ambitious outsiders."
