Becoming Famous May Reduce Life Span

Leadership Instincts

Becoming famous may reduce your life space, according to an analysis of obituaries that appeared in The New York Times.

For study purposes, 1000 obituaries that appeared in NYT from 2009 to 2011 were selected for analysis. It was analysed on the basis on occupation, gender, terminal disease. It was found that stars players in sports, star public performers, creative people tend to have shorter life spans compared to people in the military politics, business and related professions.

It can be inferred that fame in certain careers may lead to unhealthy life style such as drinking, smoking or increased stress that may impact the health of an individual. However, majority of the obituaries in the sample were men but women are also likely to lead more stressful lives as they attain stardom.
