It’s a good thing the phrase “You are what you eat” isn’t true, otherwise I would be a french fry filled burrito…
But I did hear something the other day that I think holds a little more truth. Someone told me if you average out the income of your five closest friends, your income is probably pretty close to that average.
While I may not have asked all of my close friends their annual incomes, I think I have a good idea of what they’re making. Let’s see if this little hypothesis works…
Friend 1: $110,000
Friend 2: $70,000
Friend 3: $28,000
Friend 4: $40,000
Friend 5: $80,000
Average salary of all five friends: $65,600.
My salary: $62,000
Whoa. I guess the theory has some legitimacy to it. I need to go find richer friends…joking…kind of. Let’s run a little social experiment today shall we and see if this works out for you too. In the comments below list the average salary of your five closest friends along with your salary. If you don’t feel comfortable sharing that information you can either just say “Yeah it worked” or “This was the stupidest blog post I’ve ever read” or you can always just comment anonymously. Is your salary close to your friends’ average?
