Do You Care If People Like You?

Nancy Pelosi might be one of the most powerful women in the United States, but she's not the most well liked. The Speaker of the House's favorability rating sits at 32 percent, while her unfavorability rating comes in at 48 percent. In other words: more people dislike Nancy Pelosi than like her. When asked if she cares about being unpopular, Pelosi recently said:

"I certainly want to be trusted. I’m not particularly concerned if I’m liked."

Pelosi might be on to something. Researchers recently found that women who exhibited so-called "masculine" traits earned an average of $65,224 more than their nicer or more passive colleagues over the course of their lives. So it might pay to care less about being well liked.
