Inside this Book – Melvin worked as a middle manager at IBM, and a miserable middle manager Melvin made. If clinical depression had a phone voice, it would sound just like Melvin’s did the morning he called me to see if I could take him on as a client. He’d been feeling sort of flat and listless for a while, he said—no big deal, just the past couple of decades. Lately, things had reached the point where Melvin’s work performance and marriage were both showing signs of strain. He thought the problem might be his job, and for the past month or two he’d been surreptitiously checking upscale want ads and sending his résumé to friends at other companies. He’d gotten a few nibbles, but nothing that really interested him. Melvin said all this in dull but fluent Executese, rich in words like incentivize and satisfice.

This grumpiness got worse and worse until, in each of her top-level interviews, Anne found herself barking inappropriate answers to the simplest questions. “In my last interview,” she told me, “this vice president asked me why I wanted to be in banking, and I said, ‘I don’t.’ Just like that—‘I don’t!’ It sort of popped out, like a burp. Have you ever heard anything so stupid in your entire life?” “Depends,” I said. “Do you want to work for a bank?” Anne recoiled visibly, as though I’d tossed her a snake. “Of course not,” she said. “But it’s good money.” In other words, Anne’s social self.
