From the Paper:

"In principle, much of what accounts for many of the difference between socially productive and socially unproductive individuals is a function intellectual capacity and psychological orientation. Certainly, external factors and various types of opportunities and environmental advantages also contribute significantly, as do genetic predisposition toward myriad natural abilities. But, factoring out all of those non-psychological factors as constants reveals the tremendous extent to which the relative intellectual reasoning skills and the psychological orientation of the individual determine fundamental management decisions and leadership style (Meyers & Spencer, 2004)."
