Over the years there have been questions about the management style of Steven P. Jobs, co-founder of Apple. Many have asked if Mr. Jobs was, well, to be blunt, a jerk.
These charges by critics stem in part from Mr. Jobs’s tendency to be rude to people. It was no secret that Mr. Jobs had an outwardly aggressive penchant for control and he would often put down anyone he didn’t like. Sometimes his rudeness was personal, other times business, often it was both.
