The Rich Are Different: Unravelling the Perceived and Self‐Reported Personality Profiles of High‐Net‐Worth Individuals

Temporary employment and the midlife nadir in human well-being

An increased willingness to take risks, reciprocating friendliness, and a conviction that they are in control of their own lives lead to refugees gaining a foothold in Germany faster.   Refugees who are more willing to take risks, who tend to reciprocate friendliness, and who are more strongly convinced than others are that they are in control of their lives integrate into society faster.
