Executive hubris can be detected in speech patterns…

…according to research reported into today’s FT.In an excellent piece by Gillian Tett she refers to work carried out by London neurology Professor Peter Garrard and separately from the old country, Professor Niamh Brennan and graduate John Conroy at University College Dublin. The upshot is that you can detect hubris in the speech patterns of leaders. This comes as no surprise. Wouldn’t it be great if business and political leaders had to pass an annual Hubris Test like an MOT? We’d all be safer and wouldn’t it be hilarious?
