Oh sure, guys like this THINK they’re cool. But what does it take to really be cool? Science says they’ve unraveled the mystery…
Good to see scientists working on something important. Like figuring out the main qualities that MAKE YOU COOL. That’s way more important than curing cancer, right?
–Two psychologists in New York just finished a major study to determine the qualities that go into being cool. Here are the top 11, in order.
(So if you want to get invited to sit at the lunch table with the popular people at work, start working on these.)
#1.) Friendly. (Okay, I’m one for one!)
#2.) Personal competence . . . like being smart or talented. (Oops, I’m starting to diminish…)
#3.) Trendy. (I think I should just quit now.)
#4.) Desirable . . . both as a friend and to other people sexually.
#6.) Unconventional . . . being unique or an individualist.
#7.) Prosocial values . . . like being caring or honest.
#10.) Emotionally controlled . . . like being aloof or calm.
#11.) Hedonistic . . . being fun or a partier.
A few qualities that didn’t make the list are being ironic, rough, thrill-seeking, or driven for success.
