Recognition - Finally!

Yessss! Finally, VB is acknowledged for something (leadership qualities)?!?!?!

Though she's not sure they're talking about the same "sneakers" she wears. VB thinks the poll was taken with Type A personalities who participate in physical activity more often than they really should. She's bought four pairs this past year, and below is a sampling. Obviously, hers are not your oft seen tennis, power walking, cross trainers, cycling, yoga, blah, blah, blah, (hideously fugly) shoes. Still, she thinks it's a good thing. On the other hand, who really gives a shit anyway? It just kind of makes her feel good about herself. And that's what counts.

Always buying sneakers? It's the sign of a leader: poll

"NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - 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....

Lauren Arvonio, a spokeswoman for Mindset Media, said sneaker buyers were more likely to fly by the seat of their pants.

"It is often said you can tell a lot about a person by the shoes they wear, and now we have some hard data to back that up," Arvonio told Reuters.

"What is interesting is that these personality traits held true across the board, regardless of age, income, or gender.'"
