Success isn’t always down to ability or work ethic claims Executive Touch Worldwide. The New York-based direct sales and marketing specialists have unveiled the 10 surprising factors that influence success.

Often success is correlated with work ethic and ability, sales and marketing specialists Executive Touch Worldwide were interested in research outlining less traditional contributors to the level of success achieved.

Executive Touch Worldwide shares their top 3 factors that contribute to success:

Defiant, rule-breaking kids often grow up to earn higher salaries – Modern research has found a link between adolescent rebellion and high-level earnings later in life. 1968 saw nearly 3,000 6th graders take intelligence tests and complete a questionnaire relating to their feelings. Family backgrounds were also included in the data collected.

2008, was when the data was revisited. 745 participants responded, most of which aged 52.  Academic kids reported better jobs and incomes, however, researchers found that a common trait was childhood rebellion and problems with authority.

Parents’ high expectations for their kids tend to matter more than income or assets for their child’s success – Studies have shown that children who have personal expectations shared are more likely to fulfil them. The study showed in standardized tests: 57% of the kids who did the worst were expected to attend college by their parents, while 96% of the kids who did the best were anticipated to go to college.

Birth order can also influence personality and development – Studies often confirm that first born children are ambitious and successful academically. Conclusive evidence in 2013 showed that parents were more intense with the first born, pushing them regularly, and easing up with subsequent siblings. Behavioral psychologist Derek Thompson states, “Looking at parent evaluations of children from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth in 1979, the researchers found that mothers are much more likely to see their first children as high-achievers. They regard their subsequent children as considerably more average in their class.”

Executive Touch worldwide is keen to develop a winning team, and often looks for characteristics throughout the interviewing phase that are linked to competitiveness, passion, high-achievements, and self-drive.
