Even some of Jamie Dimon's closest advisers at JPMorgan Chase were surprised when their chief executive started publicly questioning Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke earlier this week.

"I had no idea that he was going to do this," one adviser said.

Another person at JPMorgan Chase said the move was unexpected but also "typical Jamie."

"He speaks his mind. And doesn't feel like he needs to get anyone's permission or encouraging words to do it," that person said.
