He was in Omaha, who used to say, he looked withthree things in hiring people: integrity, intelligenceand energy.
And he said if the person did not have the first two,the later two would kill him,
because if they don’t have integrity, you want themdumb and lazy, you don’t want them smart and energetic.
And I got I really like to talk: about the first one,
because we know you got the second two.
And I’d just，play along with me a little game for just a second, and in terms of thinking aboutthe question.
You've all been here, I guess almost all of your second year MBA,
and you’ve gotten to know your classmates.
Think for a moment that I granted you the right to buy 10% of one of your classmates for therest of all his life time.
You can’t pick one with a rich father.
That doesn’t count.
You've got to pick somebody who is going to do this on our own merit.
And I’d give you an hour to think about it.
Which one you are going to pick?
One of your classmates, just one you want to own 10% for the rest of his lifetime.
And are you going to give an IQ test and pick the one with the highest IQ?
I doubt it.
Are you going to pick the one with the best grade?
I doubt it.
You might not pick the most energetic one necessarily because you are the one who is mostinitiative.
You are going to start looking for qualitative factors, in addition,
because everybody got a brain and energy.
And I would say that before about for an hour, I’ll place that bet on.
You would probably pick the one who you responded the best to,
the one who has the leadership qualities,
the one who is able to get other people to carry out their interests.
That would be the person who is generous, honest and who gave credit to other people evenfor their own ideas.
All kinds of qualities like that.
You can write down those qualities which you admire as another question: whomever youadmire the most in the class.
