Improve Your People-Reading Skills

Give Yourself Time

The Sum is Greater Than the Parts

Stay Flexible

  • Replacing any “irreversible pronouncements” you might be tempted to make with tentative ideas and mild suggestions.
  • Including other people’s reactions to your ideas and suggestions as additional information on which to base more accurate readings.
  • Continuing to observe and correlate new impressions with earlier ones.

Watch Yourself

  • Certain behaviors in men are often considered signs of “confidence” and “leadership qualities,” while in women they are taken as signs of “bossiness” or unwanted “manipulation;”
  • Open emotionality and deep empathy is readily accepted from women, but often questioned when exhibited by men.
