A longitudinal study at ten years out of graduate school has been completed for 205 men. This has related their Verbal V and Quantitative Q scores on the Admissions Test for Graduate Study in Business ATGSB to several criteria of business manager success. Noted is the negative relation of V scores to reaching a General Manager GM position and to compensation. The lowest decile in V exceeded the highest decile in both criteria. This counter-intuitive finding can be understood in the non-cognitive personality pattern present. Lowest decile men were superior in ascendance, social extroversion, in scores on a decisiveness scale, preference as friends, and had more of an authoritarian personality. Author
