    New study by neuroscientists at Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne links anxious temperament to low social status by pinpointing a brain area responsible for that link.

    The more relaxed and calm you are, the better social standing you might have. People seeing life situations as threatening, feel more worried and tense, i.e. anxious, which affect their social life significantly, undermining their confidence to compete for social standing.
    No need to say what this means in today's competitive world. Individuals with higher levels of anxiety could feel overlooked and rejected, which could lead to what psychologists call ‘social subordination’.

    Experiments involved categorizing rats on a spectrum of trait anxiety, from low-anxious to high-anxious rats, bu the little help of Vitamin B3 confirmed these claims.

    Was this study brought to us by the same people who discovered that water is wet and the sky is blue?
