And maybe that intense involvement with risk is what triggers Ughetta's personal behavior on allegedly the wrong side of the law.
In Abovethelaw.com, Kathryn Rubino reports:
" ... Robert L. Ughetta was arrested earlier this week by Mecklenburg County police officers on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting a public officer ... This is not Ughetta's first brush with the wrong side of the law. In 2012, he was arrested for assault on a female - non-aggravated physical force, and he was arrested again in 2014 for felony possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia."
There is that old question if people enter certain fields because it aligns with their personality and emotional needs. Or does working in that business re-shape who they are. Recruiters for diverse industries seem to believe the former. Increasingly they administer personality tests to applicants to screen out those who don't fit the typical profiles of high producers in that line of work.
With all the new regulations inflicted on financial firms because of Crash in 2008, one wonders if the industry is screening for less risky-loving players. The game has shifted to preventing the next financial crisis.
