Default Always buying sneakers?

Reuters reports:

Quote:
Got a passion for buying sneakers? It could be a good sign, with a poll finding that people who buy three pairs of sneakers or more a year are far more likely to be a leadership type that other people.

Mindset Media, a media company that examines personality traits of different consumers, found that people who buy more than three pairs of sneakers a year are 61 percent more likely to have the qualities of a modern leader.

These qualities were defined as having ideas and vision, and a style with others that is both inclusive and decisive.

The survey of 7,500 people, using market research group Nielsen's online panel, found multi-sneaker buyers were 50 percent more likely to be very assertive and 47 percent more likely to be spontaneous.

Logic is flawed. Otherwise Amelda Marcos would have been the greatest President in Philippine history.

I may have leadership skills but I am terrible at budgeting.

I really like buying shoes whether they're Air Jordans, classic converse all-stars, retro Nikes, new Nikes, DC's/Vans, etc.
