The Hypomanic Edge

Who says success is attributed to your individual will, hard work,determination, perseverance etc etc? I guess most people you and I know would say so.. but not Dr. D. Gartner of Johns Hopkins University Medical School. In his pioneering new work - The Hypomanic Edge, he claims that successful people have a mild form of mania (the extreme forms being schizophrenia, remember A Beautiful Mind?) called hypomania a genetically transferred predisposition to Bipolar II Depression. Hypomania is characterized by quickness of thought, high energy, and grand ambitions. But it’s also accompanied by irritability and an inflated ego. Typical of successful businessmen and other highly motivated people don't you think??
