I'm an editor at Inc magazine embarking on an article about the somewhat amorphous subject of confidence. Inc's readers are entrepreneurs and owners of fast-growing companies, and most of them would list confidence among the top three traits that got them where they are today. I'd like to skirt the pop-psych concentration on self-esteem and the current media obsession with CEO hubris and determine, if possible, what are the biological/developmental determinants of confidence (if such have been identified) and how those determinants are likely to translate into particular traits and behaviors typical of entrepreneurs (leadership, risk-taking etc.) I don't know whether there's any new or important research or researchers in this area, but I'd greatly appreciate any leads. Thanks.
