So what is the secret to a long successful career? Despite what you might think, it has nothing to do with your IQ, education, or even the education of your parents.

If you want to be guaranteed to have a successful career, you must be good looking.

This from a study conducted recently in Wisconsin.

Researchers analyzed the careers of more than 8,000 men and women in Wisconsin, trying to determine what factors had the strongest connection with each person’s success.

The most successful people in the group had one common thread, their good looks. The study found that good looks had more of an impact on a person's success than their IQ, and even their level of education.

It was the one variable that every highly successful person in the group possessed.

The researchers say you can chalk it up to the fact that good looking people are confident enough to get better jobs.

Another reason may be employers subconsciously want to hire better-looking people.

Whatever the real reason, it's just another good reason for the rest of us trolls to despise that male or female looking model working next to us in the office. You know the person I'm talking about, that Barbie or Ken doll looking co-worker who always seems to walk-on-water in the eyes of the boss.

The person that will receive a nice big cash bonus for Christmas, while you get rewarded with a membership to the Jelly of the Month Club again!
