One of the modern measures of career success is financial success. Therefore, it is natural that the nose is part of the equation in evaluating a person’s career potential. The nose also governs a person’s confidence and ego, which are important in determining the ability of a person’s rise up the ranks in a given profession or advance themselves in their industry of choice. Too much ego and the person cannot handle constructive criticism and fails to advance owing to an inability to see the bigger picture. Too little sense of self, and a person will not be confident enough to seek to advance themselves. The nose also governs the sense of the right and wrong, which of course, determines how someone goes about climbing the career ladder.
