Are you worried about Robots taking over your job? According to scientists people who have higher IQ and have interest in the field of art and science have less chances of losing their jobs to the robots. According to the scientists these findings are important as they demonstrate the importance of personality traits, intelligence and vocational interests. "Robots can't perform as well as humans when it comes to complex social interactions," said Rodica Damian, assistant professor at University of Houston in the US.
"Humans also outperform machines when it comes to tasks that require creativity and a high degree of complexity that is not routine. As soon as you require flexibility, the human does better," said Damian
For the purpose of their research ad finding scientists used the dataset of 346,660 people and studied closely their personality traits and vocational interests in adolescence, their socioeconomic status and intelligence.
"We found that regardless of social background, people with higher levels of intelligence, higher levels of maturity and extroversion, higher interests in arts and sciences tended to select (or be selected) into less computer oriented jobs 11 and 50 years later," researchers said.
Damian further said, findings suggest that traditional education may not fully equipped to deal with the upcoming changes in the market.
"Perhaps we should consider training personality characteristics that will help prepare people for future jobs," she said.
Researchers also found that for every 15 point increase in IQ, the chances of one's job being overtaken by a robot decreases by 7 points.
