Wide-Headed CEOs Outdo Counterparts, Telegraph Says

(Corrects name in second paragraph of story originally published Aug. 27)

Chief executive officers with wide heads perform better financially than those with long faces, the Daily Telegraph reported, citing a study in the journal Psychological Science.

Men with wider faces tend to have higher testosterone levels, making them more aggressive, which explains the link between face shape and company performance, the Daily Telegraph said, citing the research by Elaine Wong from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and colleagues, who looked at CEO faces and financial performance of 55 Fortune 500 companies.
