In brief: Nobody knows

I suspect there's a genetic component.
One's early life experience may contribute. If we ever find out, there may be people signing up for it -- it offers major advantages, especially to focused scientists, technology types, and all who love books and things on which the mind can focus. Management is learning people skills, which comes with more difficulty but isn't impossible.
