This star hedge fund manager has CIA interrogators give all his potential hires a personality test | Business Insider by Julia La Roche


Hedge fund manager Jason H. Karp, the founder of Tourbillon Capital Partners, said all of the potential hires at his firm take a personality test.

"We actually administer a three-step personality exam that's conducted by a former CIA interrogator," Karp told hedge fund recruiter Ilana Weinstein, the founder of IDW Group, this week during the Milken Institute's Global Conference.

Karp said that he learned about this type of test at his previous employer two firms ago. (By the way, that would be Steve Cohen's SAC Capital).
