Christian Fichter (51) is a professor of social and business psychology and head of research at the Kalaidos University of Applied Sciences. He deals with the psychological basis of economic and social behavior and advises companies and organizations.

With assets of at least 400 million francs, ex-Novartis boss Daniel Vasella can easily pay his taxes. Why does he even come up with the idea of ​​cheating on taxes?
Fichter: You have to start the other way around. From research we know that in order to get into such a leadership position at all, some very successful people have a personality structure that we call “dark triad”. Such individuals are narcissistic, Machiavellian, and psychopathic. And represented above average in the management floors.
