Oh yeah, you read that right.
A German institute, the Institute for the Study of Labor (ISL) has published a study suggesting that people who are sexually active (more than 4 times per week) make up to 5% more than their less “lucky” colleagues.
The results were consistent for both gay and straight workers and were not affected by job type or education level.
This isn’t to say that the activity is literally what causes the inequality in pay, but it’s pretty easy to draw some lines connecting qualities of people who are typically both more professionally successful, and do better in the dating pool as well.
The study’s author, Nick Drydakis, an economist at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, England, found that sexually-active workers are likely to be more confident, emotionally stable and focused. They’re also likely to be healthier — with fewer “limitations such as diabetes, heart diseases and arthritis,”as Drydakis told the New York Daily News. – AOL Jobs
To support the results of the study even further – workers who were having no sex at all made, on average, 3.2% less than those who were having at least some.
Is this to say that if you go out and ‘get lucky’ more often, you’ll get a raise? No, of course not.
However, it is to say that if you work on your personal development, eat well, stay fit, and build your own internal confidence – odds are you’ll begin to become more successful both personally and professionally.
Here’s to success!
