In order to become rich and successful, requires talent and effort and luck. Italian scientists from the Catania University in Sicily decided to find out what should be the ratio of these components and what role in achieving success is the favorable juncture of circumstances.
Experts have created a computer model of a society consisting of thousands of people. The level of intelligence, talent and initial wealth, and the circumstances of increasing one’s wealth these “characters” were different. The model was to demonstrate whether the most intelligent and talented at the same time the most rich and successful for 40 years. As it turned out, this did not happen with any of the “perspective” characters.
According to scientists, the role of abilities, knowledge and applied to efforts to underestimate as it is not necessary, however, as follows from the obtained results, the most successful and rich are not the most intelligent, and most successful, and those who rarely carries, in contrast, have low chances of success despite of all the efforts. However, experts tend to assume that skill is to catch the chance and the ability to develop every single (even random) success, to make the most of it, remain objectively valuable even taking into account the obtained results.
Experts believe that the role of luck should not be underestimated, because in itself, this awareness is more likely that talented people will be judged on their skills rather than previous successes.
It’s not the most unusual model of society, represented by scholars in recent times — previously it was reported that the Brazilian mathematics from the Federal University Guisa di fora in a similar way trying to figure out what role the army would in case of a zombie Apocalypse.
