Of eight surveyed industries, entertainment, fashion, finance, law, marketing, media, medicine and politics, Watson discovered that “intellect” was the top personality trait for leaders in a majority of these fields.
Watson also rated the amount of certain characteristics it identified in leaders across the various industries.
