ME! No, I’m only joking. I’d be way higher than 75%!
You all know I love data and some of the fun things we can pull out of studies about performance and selection. A 2014 study on world-class athletes found that the top-performing athletes had older siblings in 75% of the participants studied!
So, want to hire better performers? Ask this question:
Do you have older siblings?
Ironically, those only children, the super great ones all those parents love, only have a 5% chance of being world-class! Oldest kids get the other 20%, and middle kids, well they don’t
