Can you learn to dissect people's personalities from a distance like Sherlock Holmes?
Eric Barker stashed this in Influence!
I love that we can predict the future from a smile: http://www.bakadesuyo.com/what-can-i-predict-about-your-future-just-by
I also love this:
Neurotic people use more negative words, extraverts more positive words and agreeable people avoid swearing. Creative writing can give you a pretty good look at their overall personality and their level of general knowledge. Even text messages are giveaways.
Skip the resume; it won't tell you who they really are. A Facebook profile will show you someone's real personality. It's also a far better predictor of job performance.
We communicate who we are by what we write, wherever we write, whether it's Web, Facebook, emailing, or texting...
