A new survey finds physician leaders in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry have more forceful personalities, typical of what you would see in business leaders, while leadership in hospitals tend to be more structured, thoughtful, deliberative and cautious.

It's easy to assume physician leaders are all cut from the same cloth. After all, each likely needed the same dose of drive, determination and decision-making to be in the position they're in today — right?

Although it is an inspection worthy infographic, my comment to it, about the possibility to inspect the survey's methodological merits, has still not been responded too. I wonder why?
