Strongly agree with pg here. We have one existence proof for an "asshole" Elon, and zero for a "nice guy" version. That should make the null hypothesis that the personality traits that sometimes make him so annoying are also key factors in his extraordinary achievements.

I think it is possible to have those traits and be less of an asshole though. I lost a lot of respect from him after his behaviour towards the rescue of the trapped Thai football team. He came across as a petulant child.

Without endorsing that whole incident, I'll highlight that "I want to go to Mars" comes across as a petulant child demand to a large % of the population 😄
