Another good reason to be Germanic . Studies link attractiveness with career success. A study from the University of Texas finds that the workers participants rated to be the most attractive earned up to 5 times the salary of average looking workers. Consequently, the unattractive workers earned up to 10 percent less than the average.

"According to many studies, good looks and success go hand in hand. Attractive people tend to get ahead faster and earn more money - which in turn makes them more appearance-conscious."

I always believed so too. My question is: Do you believe that attractive people self consciously are more likely to be promoted and chosen, or is it due to the fact that Germanics are just harder working people and hence earn their way to success the good old natural way?
