Interesting. My ears always perk up when things like this run in the press, but I hadn't seen this. My guess, and I don't think it takes any "insider knowledge" is that cell 2 swamps cell 1 by a double digit factor. Missions teach one a lot, but I'd bet (not literally of course) it's spurious correlation indeed.

This actually is an older piece that I drafted and then forgot to post. I'm glad I brought it to your attention.

I think this got my attention because I'm working here at SUU ... you get a lot of this stuff that someone is wonderful because they did a mission and then a good career, but you don't hear much that maybe they were successful at both for the same underlying reasons.

You also get a lot of this in business schools too. It bugs me when they bring in super-successful executives (who probably benefited from a lot of luck along the way). I wish they'd bring in more of the I-failed-ten-times-before-I-got-it-right sort. I think that would be more realistic for students.
