Good people are at greater risk of financial hardship and bankruptcy, according to research by American psychologists.
Research published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psyhology found that people with a hot character have less money and a greater debt than those with less pleasant character.
The reason for this is not that they are weak negotiators, as they were originally believed, but because their money is less important.
Joe Gladstone, from the University of London, says the relationship between character and material status is fueled by the fact that the friendly, dear people are less concerned about money and therefore mismanage them.
Scientists have come to this knowledge through data analysis of more than 3 million people.
“When you’re dear and confidential, it brings some financial losses with you, especially for those who have no way to compensate for their character,” said Sandra Mac, a co-author of a Columbia Business School study in New York.
To similar conclusions, scientists came earlier, a study found that in a life of good men, the hard-working people between the ages of the 40’s and 60’s were well-off.
