THE Edinburgh Science Festival is aiming to discover the secret of success.

Along with psychiatrist Dr Raj Persaud, the festival has launched an online survey with members of the public asked to take part.

Dr Persaud said: “While a person can be academically outstanding, they may not be good at making friends – an evolutionary imprinted achievement.

“This survey aims to test these theories and to find out what really are the secrets of success.”

He will be revealing the results of the survey, and discussing the theories behind the research, at an event on April 2.
