Bezos is in some ways similar to Jobs when it comes to his brutal honesty.
In meetings, it’s not uncommon for Bezos to erupt into one of his well-documented ‘nutters’, which is a euphemism for his outbursts. Bezos would occasionally snap at unprepared team members: “I’m sorry; I took my stupid pills today”, “If I hear that idea again, I’m going to have to kill myself,”, “Are you lazy or just incompetent?”.
Having said that, his nutters indicate he’s being more clever than kind. Some who have worked closely with Bezos say his nutterings are justified because he’s almost always right.
