This is a short passage from the April 97 FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin (university library) from an article titled "Managing for Ethics - A Mandate for Administrators":

Greater Temptations

"A recent study established that fast-talking, outgoing, assertive, and self-confident risk takers represent the best candidates for undercover work. While this may come as no surprise, the study also concluded that these personality traits 'are often the same ones predisposing [an officer] to corruption and psychological distress.'"

Uh, no, it comes as no surprise to us... Thanks.
