The Surprising Problem of Too Much Talent

The study from some sports suggests that add more talented people decreases the overall team performance probably due to decreased coversion in the team. I guess the problem is more because of hiring assholes rather than hiring talent. People skills and physical/sports/domain ability often don't come together. And as suggested by _<stegasourous strategy>, in some areas assholery appears more clever (say talented).
