Got a passion for buying sneakers? It could be a good sign, with a poll finding that people who buy three pairs of sneakers or more a year are far more likely to be a leadership type that other people.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.

Awesome! I always knew I was a leader. Now my kicks says I am.

  1. Ok this is one of the most ridiculous “science” headlines I’ve read lately. Buying shoes every 4 months makes u a leader??? wtf. It’s hard to think of a weaker relationship. Does buying gas every two days mean you’re great in bed? That’s just as plausible as this headline. I need a lot more evidence.
