That sounds suspiciously like Mindweapon. I’m guessing both gentlemen would vigorously object to the comparison, but productive people are beginning to get the idea they need to “go Galt”, to bring another incompatible mind into the mix. Ayn Rand’s disciple and later nemesis, the pop pyschologist Nathaniel Branden, had a saying- “No one is coming.” By which he meant to tell his clients and readers that in the end they were going to have to work out their problems themselves.
Productive people can work with other productive people. There is no need for a middle man.
