Arrogant gadget buyers think they’re better than us!

“Avid technology consumers tended to score highly in personality traits such as leadership, dynamism and assertiveness — but low in modesty,” the study says.

Advice to IT departments: Don’t give users anything that will make them feel any more superior than they already do. In fact, considering exploring if the reverse is also true. Running a mainframe should make a humble person out of anybody.
