Especially when you can simply look at someone’s shoes. This Yahoo News story has to be an April Fool’s joke:
Mindset Media, a media company that examines personality traits of different consumers, found that people who buy more than three pairs of sneakers a year are 61 percent more likely to have the qualities of a modern leader.
These qualities were defined as having ideas and vision, and a style with others that is both inclusive and decisive.
The survey of 7,500 people, using market research group Nielsen’s online panel, found multi-sneaker buyers were 50 percent more likely to be very assertive and 47 percent more likely to be spontaneous.
Hybrid car owners were found to be 78 percent more likely to be highly creative than other people and less dogmatic.
This has to be a prank.
