Steve Jobs FBI report describes Apple head as 'deceptive'

Steve Jobs has been described as 'deceptive' and 'complex' in an FBI report that was compiled in 1991 when the Apple head was involved with the President

 

An FBI report into the late Steve Jobs from 1991 has been released describing the Apple co-founder and former CEO as “a deceptive individual.”

The report, which was compiled more than 20 years ago when Jobs was being considered for a role in the original Bush administration, has been released following a request under the Freedom of Information Act describing the iPod mastermind as “a complex character.”

Leaving no stone unturned, the FBI investigation into Jobs’ character covered is Buddhist faith, made references to his parenting skills and covered off is open experimentation with drugs during the earlier years of his life.

Having carried out 29 character judgement interviews with Jobs’ nearest and dearest the FBI report deducted that the Apple head had the ability to “twist the truth and distort reality in order to achieve his goals.”

Speaking with one labelled “good friend” the report deduced that Jobs was “basically an honest and trustworthy person, [but] he is a very complex individual and his moral character is suspect." The report follows a number of the themes outlined in Walter Isaacson’s official biography of the Apple and Pixar pioneer.
