I found the next message on MSN and this is very interesting. :chef:

Peter is the best name for will be the boss.

Perseverance and Intelligence are needed, of course, but it is also a good job when you have the right first name.

Peter is the most World wide known name for chief executive officers.
That came out an investigation from Social Network site Linkedin.

Peter, the boss

The most known names under the Big Boss is thus Peter.

That is interesting RNS, thank you. I found a link to the article in question: http://blog.seattlepi.com/techchron/2011/04/29/peter-deborah-top-linkedin-list-for-most-popular-ceo-names/

LinkedIn data scientists recently dove into the data banks of its 100 million members around the globe and found the top five most popular first names of male CEOs were, in order: Peter, Bob, Jack, Bruce and Fred.

For women CEOs, it's Deborah, Sally, Debra, Cynthia and Carolyn.

"We started by contrasting CEOs across the globe with the average LinkedIn professional to find the top names that are over-represented among CEOs," senior LinkedIn research scientist Monica Rogati wrote in a company blog.

Rogati said one trend that emerged was that popular CEO names "tend to be either short or shortened versions of popular first names. Onomastics specialist Dr. Frank Nuessel suggests that shortened versions of given names are often used to denote a sense of friendliness and openness. Female CEOs, on the other hand, use their full name to project a more professional image."

I got a really big chuckle from the Italian CEO---"Guido" Being an Italian-American born and raised in Brooklyn NY, the name "Guido" conjures images of some Tony Soprano looking/sounding crooked-nosed, stout but muscular leg breaking gangsta wannabe, NOT a CEO. :lmao:

What you told is correct.
I had that message cut, because, I tried be funny.
Then placed I that message, after a while, at the moment that I logged in, there were no members that viewed my message and I removed my own words below that Linkedin message.
I thought, it is nice when I set this under that Linkedin message, but maybe get I problems with this, so I editted my message.
Okay what I can tell is, maybe is there a core of truth in that message, but the Author from that message forgot to tell, that you must also can good talking.
I have one of that names and I can sure you that also I am intelligent, I am not a good talker.
But it is what you said, it is an interesting message.
