With that being said, I've seen founders become lots of things both good and bad. The experience of doing something as challenging as creating a new business is certainly the type of endeavor which will likely forever alter your view of the reality in which we reside.
We also considered "Psychopaths start companies" and "Some third variable relates to both psychopathy and starting companies", all of which are equally valid hypotheses :)

Edit: I think I'm not allowed to respond to the reply to this comment for flamewar prevention reasons, so putting it here. You can also look at the nonparametric version of the test if you don't buy that parametric is good here (though I'd disagree because of the central limit theorem). p-value there is 0.00004
Judging based off just the visual curve is not a great idea as our brains are wired up for matching patterns and not for working out these kind of differences properly. It's why math is such a good idea when making decisions.
And math is not a good idea when you make assumptions like normality of curves which are absolutely not normal. In this case, using the t-test to calculate a p value.
I think reification of poorly done math is a bigger problem than math by eye.
One can't be fixed, the other sometimes can be.
Getting real for a second, all jokes aside, sociopaths are a real and severe threat to society. You should shun and avoid sociopaths at all costs. You might be tempted into thinking "but I need my CEO to be...". The answer is NO. Such a CEO will do nothing, add no value, and ultimately steal all the money of the company, and not feel the least bit guilty or remorseful. Because sociopaths don't have those feelings.
So unite brethren against the non-human sociopaths among us!

Edit: We added a couple notes about this in the blog post, thanks for the feedback.
At the top is the disclaimer: "this is not a scientific study". Then they present their data and bring up some new questions based on their findings and link to their stats tool.
The problem is: their are no conclusions to be drawn from this, no new questions that arise, no discussion we can have- its the back of a cereal box.
If they do a little more work and show that they have found something meaningful- then we'll talk.
"People who drink Folgers' coffee are more likely to be psychopaths"
"People who drive red cars are more likely to be psychopaths"
"People who eat out every 3rd Sunday of the month on leap years are more likely to be psychopaths"
...and we wouldn't be any smarter for it. Aren't there any more useful ways to show off your analytics platform?
