What is the link between the way you place toilet paper and your financial gains? Well, this custom betrays aspects of your personality and, implicitly, factors that determine how much money you can make.
According to a study by Dr. Gilda Carle, the way a roll of toilet paper is placed into the support divides individuals into two categories.
Those who place the toilet paper with the end of the roll pointing upward (left) are more assertive. They can take leadership positions and can readily assume decision-making responsibilities.
Those who place the toilet paper with the end of the roll pointing downward (right) are more submissive. They are empathetic and flexible, and tend to agree with what is being told them rather than to take control and assume leadership.
Over 2,000 subjects of all ages were surveyed in this study.
An interesting aspect revealed by the research is that one in five subjects has the habit of changing the way the toilet paper is placed in other people’s homes or at work. Obviously, this is mostly about those who turn the paper upward, wishing to impose their point of view as a consequence of their dominant personality.
As for the financial side, rich people place the paper roll pointing upward, according to the study. Thus, 73% of those earning less than $ 20,000 per year place the paper roll pointing downward, while 60% of those who earn more than $ 50,000 tend to place the paper roll upward.
