A successful career can be a result of an individual’s winning personality and hard work. But, a new research suggests that it may not just be your personality that’s one of the key factors in your career success. Your promotion might have been made possible by your personality as well as your spouse’s.
Is My Spouse Responsible For My Successful Career?
Researchers from Washington University studied 4,544 married people to see if there’s a connection between their spouse’s personality and their job success. Participants had to answer a questionnaire with 36 items. The researchers divided the personality traits into five: openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism, which are the “Big Five” personality traits.
