Benjamin Sisko is prone to emotional outbursts. He has a foul temper and has poor emotional control compared to Picard. Why was he appointed captain of DS9 given these weaknesses?
Bosses with foul tempers make poor leaders because they are unpleasant to work with. Would you want to work under such a boss?
The question above appears to be incorrect. Ben Sisko was appointed commander of DS9 and then later was promoted to captain. Others' answers included the correction, but should the question itself be edited?
