High testosterone levels linked to self-destructive CEO behavior, says Management Science
Date:9/8/2010

testosterone levels featured prominently when their refusal to continue negotiations led to a hostile takeover attempt.

The study builds upon a 2007 experiment conducted among students by Terence C. Burnham of Harvard University. In the two-player game, each team must agree how to divide a sum of "free" money or lose the entire sum. In this "ultimatum" game, high-testosterone men were more likely to reject what they perceived as low offers.

In the Burnham experiment, saliva from participants' mouths was swabbed to measure testosterone levels. In the current paper, age is used as a proxy for testosterone.

The current authors use data from Thomson's SDC database for more than 350 acquisition bids during the ten-year period from 1997-2007 to test the behavior of 'bidder' male CEOs. The average age of bidding firm males was 56 years old. The authors categorized CEO's under age 45 as young for the purposes of this study.
