Do you like your name and initials? Most people do and, as past research has shown, sometimes we like them enough to influence important behaviors. For example, Jack is more likely to move to Jacksonville and marry Jackie than is Philip, who is more likely to move to Philadelphia and marry Phyllis. Scientists call this phenomenon the “name-letter effect” and argue that it is influential enough to encourage the pursuit of name-resembling life outcomes and partners.

However, if you like your name too much, you might be in trouble. Leif Nelson, University of California, San Diego, and colleague Joseph Simmons, Yale University, found that liking your own name sabotages success for people whose initials match negative performance labels.

In their first study, Nelson and Simmons investigated the effect of name resemblance on batters’ strikeouts. As any baseball fan knows, strikeouts are recorded on stat sheets using the letter “K.” After analyzing Major League Baseball players’ performance spanning 93 years, the researchers found that batters whose names began with “K” struck out at a higher rate than the remaining batters. “Even Karl ‘Koley’ Kolseth would find a strikeout aversive, but he might find it a little less aversive than players who do not share his initials, and therefore he might avoid striking out less enthusiastically,” wrote the authors.

In a second study, the researchers investigated the phenomenon in academia. Nelson and Simmons reviewed 15 years of grade point averages (GPAs) for MBA students graduating from a large private American university. Students whose names began with “C” or “D” earned lower GPAs than students whose names began with “A” or “B.” Students with the initial “C” or “D” were slightly less successful at achieving their conscious academic goals, presumably because of an unconscious fondness for these letters. Interestingly, students with the initial “A” or “B” did not perform better than students whose initials were grade irrelevant. Therefore, having initials that match hard-to-achieve positive outcomes, like acing a test, may not necessarily cause an increase in performance. However, after analyzing law schools, the researchers found that as the quality of schools declined, so did the proportion of lawyers with name initials “A” and “B.”

The researchers confirmed these findings in the laboratory with an anagram test. The result of the test confirmed that when people’s initials match negative performance outcomes, performance suffers. These results, appearing in the December issue of (Leif D. Nelson and Joseph P. Simmons. “Moniker Maladies When Names Sabotage Success”), provide striking evidence that unconscious wants can insidiously undermine conscious pursuits.

The Government is making it easier to start a business by streamlining business registration. Initiatives announced under the $5.5 billion package include:

Agencies involved

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO), Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and Department of Industry, Innovation and Science are developing the IT solutions for streamlining business registration. Targeted consultations have occurred throughout the development of the project.

Who will benefit?

Streamlining business registration will benefit:

The Business Registration Service accepts the following registrations:

Single online portal for business and company registration

The Business Registration Service for business and company registration connects the ATO and ASIC to allow businesses to register without having to contact the agencies separately. The Business Registration Service:

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)

The APIs that allow business registrations to occur in each government agency allows third party providers and software developers to build new business registration services. Businesses will benefit from a wider choice of registration services.

The ATO and ASIC have released documentation for the APIs for the registrations listed above. The ATO APIs are available on the Standard Business Reporting website. The ASIC APIs are available from the ASIC website. The APIs have been developed using simple technical standards which will further reduce costs for third party providers and therefore costs for businesses.

Single Business Identifier (SBI)

The SBI measure was announced as part of the Growing Jobs and Small Business package to make business administration easier and less confusing. The single business identifier would have replaced the ACNs and BTFNs with the ABN.

The Minister for Revenue and Financial Services commissioned an implementation study to assess the economy-wide impacts of adopting a single business identifier. This study has shown that the SBI measure would have large transition costs to upgrade existing IT systems and processes that rely on the three generic business identifiers (the ABN, ACN and BTFN).

The study concluded the Government could pursue its objectives through its digital transformation agenda. As such the Government will not abolish company numbers and instead progress measures to improve the way it connects with business through digital transformation.

Digital Transformation Agenda

Streamlining business registration also has links with the Government’s Digital Transformation Agenda (DTA) . The Government is investing $254.7 million in the DTA to drive innovation and make it easier for individuals and businesses to access government services.

Streamlining business registration will be informed by DTA principles for design and implementation.
