Hacking People

Have you ever wanted to HACK the personality and brain of other people? Vannessa Van Edwards did that for us in her book CAPTIVATE.  As much as I LOVE the Myers Briggs personality tests, after reading the book "Captivate", I have a torn heart. Vannessa (I'm sure she doesn't mind me calling her by her first name) was able to narrow down five distinct personality traits that allow for a better way to hack the personalities of every individual we come across in our day to day life.

Improv (that Acting Thing Everyone Thinks is Weird) Changed My Life

No one wants to speak to a robot, so embrace your weirdness and allow yourself to make mistakes. Eventually, you'll just get better, but you have to allow yourself the opportunity to just say something rather than hold back and risk an "imperfect" conversation.

An Introverted Introspection

Being a bonafide introvert myself, I know that us introverts have somewhat of a unique perspective in our day to day actions. About 50% of Americans are introverts believe it or not and you can bet that most, if not all, need their recharge time after "people" engagement. I've met many introverts ranging from the ones you thought all along were extroverts and ones who just hate being around people altogether and never in their lives would be caught dead at a party over 2 people.
