It turns out when you have a job interview you shouldn't emphasize your successes, but rather the hard work it took to achieve them.
Researchers from Cass Business School conducted three experiments and found people who talked about their struggles were more likable.
Study leader Dr. Janina Steinmetz adds, "A success story isn't complete without the hard work and explanation of why we were successful. For example, if you're on a date and talking about a marathon that you recently ran, perhaps talk about all the training that helped you to cross the finish line.
Or, if you're in a job interview and are talking about a successful project that you led to completion, include a few details about the challenges along the way, and how you overcame them."
