On the downside, you can feel threatened by other people who have ideas, particularly if they're critical of your methods. Your immediate reaction will usually be to discredit them as mush-headed or bleeding-hearts, but they can often be right. You can also be a little egocentric. If people like you could learn to be less immediately reactionary, and listen to the reasons their critics think what they do, the world might be a better place (the ability to do this is the kind of thing that sets Warren Buffett and Bill Gates apart from the Enron executives, for example).
It's true that the world functions because of people like you, but it is important to remember that you are a foundation and catalyst, and that's all. As a manager, you need your engineers and accountants, as an engineer, you need scientists. As a politician, you need advisors. The better of the Atlas types remember this, and by doing this they're more likely to recieve gratitude for their accomplishments. Failure to recognize the contributions of your associates can be your undoing (there are people around you who are highly skilled, and they will be perfectly happy to find someone else to work with if they feel they aren't being treated fairly).
