'"While agreeableness is penalised in the labour market, it may make a person more socially acceptable, increase their social networks and finally lead to better mental health and well-being," said study co-author Dr Alita Nandi.

The study found that those who were amiable earned 6% less than those who were aggressive in their dealings.
