Claudia Brumbaugh's study on The Insecurity Advantage in dating may resonate with yesterday's study (next below) on lack of empathy in upper class people.
Confidence easily translates into an inner assurance that you're a "pretty datable person". The 'insecure' person works harder to be attentive and likeable.
The only problem is that the insecure are eventually found out. “Insecurity leads to problems like poor communications, and anxious people in particular are jealous,” Brumbaugh says. It’s worth noting that Brumbaugh’s fiancé, when they first met, was living in the city’s flannel-covered bastion of self-doubt: Williamsburg. But, she insists, “he has a more forceful personality.”
Perhaps this new study reality makes Anne wrong and Karl Lagerfeld correct, when he creates ad campaigns devoid of emotion for Chanel.
