The secret to success is cat poop, according to study
This common feline parasite makes you prone to business
Researchers from the University of Colorado conducted a spit test on 1500 students and professionals, and found that those who have been exposed to this specific parasite were 1.4 times more likely to be majoring in business and 1.7 times more likely to have chosen an emphasis on “management and entrepreneurship.”
Similarly, the professionals who were infected were almost twice as likely to be self-starters and successful business people.
The study reads, “Emerging research in the biological sciences has increasingly emphasized the importance of transmissible agents — ranging from viruses to worms -in collectively shaping host immunity, susceptibility to anxiety and mental disorders and even mate attraction,” they wrote.
“Such findings suggest that infections — through their influence on individual behavior — further have the potential to affect large-scale cultural and business-related outcomes.
“What drives differences in entrepreneurial activity rates remains an important question, for which this study offers insight into the potential role of infection.”
