You know sometimes, dear readers, I sit here in the “Decision Marketing Nerve Centre” – otherwise known as McKelvey’s front room – and ponder the big questions in life, the conundrums that vex even the finest minds on the planet…
You know the sort of stuff, is it more important to be respected or liked? Have we become less happy in this age of technology? Will artificial intelligence help increase human lifespan in the future? Is there freedom in creativity and art in the modern age? If death is inevitable, why bother doing anything?
And just when I thought I had cracked the answers to these, up popped an email which really put a spanner in the works by pondering the teaser: “Have you ever wondered which Disney princess could be as successful as their cinematic counterpart if they existed in the real world?”
Hmm, to be honest, I can quite frankly say that has never, ever, ever, ever, crossed my mind, but who am I to deny those of you who are interested in such crucial matters?
Well, apparently theknowledgeacademy.com has identified seven popular Disney princesses and analysed their individual personality traits, then paired them with an applicable real world job and corresponding salary.
At the top of the pile is Belle (from Beauty and the Beast), whose love of books and a natural curiosity, combined with her stubbornness, mean she is ideally suited to a career as a higher education lecturer on a salary of over £50,000 a year.
Then we have Moana (from, surprise, surprise, Moana), who being headstrong, fearless and proud is ideally suited to a career as an oceanographer, a role which can bring in a salary of over £40,000 a year.
Have you lost the will to live yet? Well, as space, time and attention span are limited, I will rattle through the others. Ariel (from The Little Mermaid) would make a great marine biologist (£35,000); Elsa (from Frozen) is the perfect fit for an ecologist and environmental planner (£33,500); Cinderella would be a marvellous head chef (£30,000); Jasmine (from Aladdin) is suited to a life as UN Peacekeeper (28,500) and finally (yes I promise this is coming to an end) Snow White’s motherly nature makes her a great fit for an early years teacher (£26,000).
Rather depressingly, they would all be earning far more than little ol’ me… Still, at least I now have the answer to the biggest conundrum ever, namely: what time will I get out of here so I can get to the shops to hunt out some Black Friday bargains?
With nearly 500 words written, that’s me done. Have a good one!
