Thanks very much for sharing this. Fascinating insights. I’ve tried to identify and articulate the psychological “markers” that I look for when meeting with founders but I haven’t gone this deep (or had the benefit of so much data). Also- very excited to see the female founder takeaway — dovetails really well with the #1 takeaway of First Round Capital’s huge ten-year review. We (female-founder advocates and investors) need to produce, and get the word out about, more data-driven arguments like this.
I’d love to see the full outcome of the survey — top to bottom, which traits are most positive and which correlate most to negative.
