BALTIMORE - Ladies, if you're looking to move up in the business world you may not want to smile, according to a CNN study.
The study showed that overly cheerful women are less likely to get promoted. The experiment, which was done in Germany, asked men and women to rank who would be the best leader.
The criteria was based on whether the candidate was cheerful, prideful or showed no emotion.
Among the candidates cheerful women were ranked the least likely to lead. Researchers say women need to be hard-lined and assertive.
