Can it be true?
Talk about glass half empty! According to findings of a new research, holding a glass of wine and just standing at a party might lead your boss and colleagues to think that you are less intelligent!
Erhmmm, the intelligence rating in our office has just plummeted…
Anyhow researchers from the universities of Michigan and Pennsylvania have found that just standing holding a drink changes, for the worse, colleagues' and bosses' assumptions about your brain power, and my favourite part of this is that they have coined this as "imbibing idiot bias".
Although most people think they look more intelligent when ordering or holding a glass of wine, the opposite is true, said the research based on five studies involving over 1,300 people.
