Web Desk: A new study has warned you about bragging your high-class status because it might repel people from befriending you.
According to the research, the status symbols like luxury cars, branded accessories or apparels do not make people socially attractive.
The scientists conducted a series of six studies. Throughout the studies, people presenting themselves to a new group chose higher status items. But when the people were asked to choose a friend, they preferred people with lower or neutral status symbols.
In one of the experiments, the researchers asked people to choose one of the two participants, wearing plain t-shirts, to go on a picnic with. One participant wore a t-shirt with ‘Walmart’ written on it and the other one had ‘Saks Fifth Avenue’ logo on his t-shirt.
