High earners have a very specific quality, says one study. But not assertiveness or a high IQ should ensure a high salary.



High earners have a very specific quality, says one study.

But not assertiveness or a high IQ should ensure a high salary.

Anyone who wants to earn a high salary * or even get rich once in their life should be very interested in a new study.

Scientists from the Universities of Cologne and Bonn found in their study that people with a very specific characteristic earn more money on average than others.

And this quality is called:

patience.

Why do patient people make more money than others?

"Hurry with a while" or "Rome wasn't built in a day": Although many proverbs praise patience as a valuable quality, patient people are not necessarily equated with successful people or even "high earners".

And yet this inconspicuous ability seems to be worthwhile in the long run, as the study shows.

According to the researchers, people who are more patient would

save more on average, be more productive and invest more time in education

.

Patience is particularly crucial for productivity, which in turn determines income.

In contrast, older studies show that impatient people would often delay their work, consume drugs or write poorer grades.

Not good conditions for a good job with a high salary.

This saying by Elon Musk reveals how success works.

The researchers had evaluated data on the time preference of 80,000 people from 76 countries.

Differences in patience explained about

40 percent of the differences in per capita income

between different countries.

Germany did quite well in comparison, but the most patient were the people in Canada, the USA, Australia and Sweden.
