Given the breadth of implications that CEO psychological characteristics have for their organisations, in this manuscript I examine those characteristics as outcomes of the new CEO selection process. At the core of this theory is the realization that organisa¬tional successions may select executive types based on particular configurations of char-acteristics that respond to their governance, competitive, or performance needs. I first develop a typology of CEO psychological profiles (the Independent Hero Leader , the Collaborative Champion Leader, the Classic Administrator Leader, and the Landmark Individualist Leader) by cluster analysing a sample of 250 S&P 500 CEOs for which relevant psychological characteristics (i.e., narcissism, charisma, regulatory focus, honesty-humility, Machiavellianism, assertiveness, social influence, political skill, and pro-activeness, CSE, individualism and collectivism) were assessed with psycho-metrically valid scales utilising a videometric approach. Then, I hypothesize that a number of firm, board, and industry characteristics significantly affect the psychological profiles or types selected for new CEO appointments.
