Interesting Fact # 1047 - Promotion

Economics and psychology researchers at the University of Warwick in central England have found that promotion produces 10 percent more mental strain and leaves up to 20 percent less time to visit the doctor in the event of illness.

(They were testing the assumption that an improvement in job status leads to better health due to an increased sense of self-worth, but they found no evidence of improved physical health after promotion, in fact they found that mental health actually deteriorates. So the next time you're offered promotion, think twice and make sure the money's good, that way you can afford to go private.)
