Author Malcolm Gladwell — who's sold some 4.5 million books — says that entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs and IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad become so successful thanks to a rare combination of personality traits. As he said on stage at on Tuesday at the World Business Forum in New York, they are open to experience, conscientious, and disagreeable. 

"Conscientious" is ability to plan and be productive:

"Open to experience" means always looking for new better ideas.

"Disagreeable" means they say NO a lot.

Makes sense those are personality traits for success.
