Do you know what’s common among Jason Statham, Pitbull, Steve Ballmer, Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel. They are tremendously successful. And also bald.
Over three studies, led by Albert E. Mannes, 59 participants at the University of Pennsylvania were shown pictures of men with a full head of hair, and another of them with their hair digitally shaved off.
He found that the bald versions of the men were perceived by participants as more dominant, masculine and confident and stronger than they actually were.
Tech entrepreneur Seth Godin told,
“I’m not saying that shaving your head makes you successful, but it starts the conversation that you’ve done something active. These are people who decide to own what they have, as opposed to trying to pretend to be something else.”
