For most of us, and I fall into this category too, we would like to have white teeth, perfectly aligned and sparkly. Unfortunately, genetics is not always kind. I can across this employment statistic that I want to share with you today and do tell us what you think!
A very interesting study was done in New Zealand if white teeth can help you to achieve more in your career. This is quite absurd if you think about it. What happened to the one who is most capable, get the job? But, your first few minutes in an interview for a new job is where impressions are made.
What’s your first impression?
Impressions are very important, even in our personal lives. If you had to meet me on a Saturday, when I am covered in dirt from working in the garden with no makeup, you would not recognize me on a Monday morning when I am off to my meetings. It would be hard, even if you did see me on Monday as well, to get that first image out of your mind. This is why how you look for that interview or date plays such a huge roll.
Study finds white teeth make you more successful
The study’s outcome was that having white teeth make you more successful. This is due to the fact that you will have a 10% higher chance to land the job. It also knocks 5 years off your age. This is a great plus point when you need to compete with applicants 20 years younger than yourself.
Most companies today would not rush to hire a 50 year old man as compared to his 30 year old competitor. I can understand why. The company has to project that you will be able to work for a certain about of time to make the investment in you.
This doesn’t mean that life is over when you have reached middle age. It just means that you need to step up your game. Learn a few new tricks like how to use Instagram and Facebook and relook at your wardrobe. Presenting yourself in a fresh and trendy way will impress anyone, no mater their age group!
FIY- More about the study that white teeth is important today:
“This study provides some of the first findings that speak to the powerful benefits of having a whiter smile,” says Dr. Dacher Keltner, smile psychologist and Professor of Psychology at University of California at Berkeley. “Visible from 200 feet, it is the intense focus of what other people look at, and a sign of our warmth, confidence, and health.”
During the simulated job interviews, it was also found that a majority of the study participants were viewed to be more professional (65%) and more confident (61%) after their teeth had been whitened. And, on their simulated first dates, more than half of study participants were viewed to be more outgoing (59%) after their teeth had been whitened.” Very interesting indeed!
