The research criteria included for the first time what they called “personal capital”. This category contains things like looks, confidence, strength, stamina, flexibility and charisma. The researchers were taken by surprise by the unexpectedly strong relationship between looks and success in life. People who look good and feel fit and confident are way more successful in life!
