WHAT IN YOUR OPINION IS THE SECRET OF SUCCESS?
From the Greek Default to why Scotland is so rubbish at international football – why do some succeed while others fail? What, in your opinion, is the secret of success?
Complete our short survey by looking at the factors below and indicating the extent to which, in your opinion or experience, each factor contributes to a person’s success. The higher the score, the greater the contribution and vice versa. While many factors might contribute to success and it can be defined in various ways (such as income or other goals such as status), for the purpose of this survey we are restricting our definition to any goal for which others compete but which only a minority will attain at the highest level. This might be sporting, career, artistic, philanthropic, financial; in fact excellence of any description or any admirable or desirable accomplishment counts.
Our thanks to Professor Adrian Furnham, of University College London, for collaborating with the Edinburgh International Science Festival in producing this survey.
