Whether or not you realize it, your success and outlook in life can also depend on the people you surround yourself with.
But science takes that one step further.
According to researchers, your success may also depend on who you marry.
A study recently published at Carnegie Mellon University shows that spouses can greatly affect the decisions you make, ultimately contributing to your success or failure.
According to this study, people with supportive spouses are “more likely to give themselves the chance to succeed.”
People with supportive partners tend to take up more challenging tasks
They came to this conclusion after studying 163 married couples. Each partner was given a choice – to solve a simple puzzle or to compete for a prize. Researchers then took note of each couple’s interactions with each other.
