I know one person w/++++IQ & education who was NEVER promoted. No one in high places liked him at all. He was even told that. One supervisor remarked about another person w/average IQ who was promoted that THEY liked this person!
That's sad but very common. Likability trumps merit whenever it comes to dealing with people. If people don't "enjoy" being around someone they're not going to promote or help them. No one tells you that in school. Social skills are a must!
They SURE don't. I have seen firsthand that average IQs who are likable get promoted/even favored over high IQs, diligent employees who AREN'T deemed likable. What a crock of $%!
So true! Being "likeable" and "good looking" are the REAL keys to success in America! Model Gisele Bundchen made $44M last year. The average heart surgeon earned $533,084. Popularity is the golden ticket! Smart people must adapt!
