Advance Your Career – Learn How to Analyze People On Sight

Posted on

Over the years, I’ve become very good at reading people as I approach them, often from many feet in advance. This is a great skill, one I suppose I accidentally learned as a young man doing mobile car washing and traveling from office to office to try to convince people to get their cars washed in the parking lot. Yes, I suppose that is a funny way to acquire such a talent, but it is valuable once you attain it.

Now then, to be successful in politics, leadership, or any of a number of things including sales, negotiation, diplomacy, and business it would behoove you to find a way to get these same skills and talents for yourself. If you’d like to find a way to better your career in this regard, there is a decent book which pits body types against personalities and preferences of those you meet. It’s an old book, but almost a classic in many regards. The name of the book is;

“How To Analyze People On Sight: Through The Science of Human Analysis,” by Elsie Lincoln Benedict and Ralph Paine Benedict, CreateSpace Independent Publishers (online self-publishing), 2011, 256 pages, ISBN: 978-146-09291-31.

This book isn’t the only method people use for figuring out others, but it seems to be easier and more efficient than asking someone their Zodiac sign and then telling them to hold that thought while you go figure out exactly what that means. This book talks about psychology, body language, body type, and is an overall human analysis that will help you judge those you meet and be spot on a good percentage of the time. In fact, as you read this book, you’ll start to see how accurate it is based on those friends, associations, family members and people you already know.

It is interesting that this book was written in the 1920’s but how so much of it is true even to this day. Apparently, things have changed a lot over the years in our society and civilization, but not so much has changed in human behavior. So, you’d be wise to get a quick education on all this and then use this knowledge to develop your own skills along this line when you try to figure out those personalities and human types you meet. Is this really profiling? You bet it is, and it seems to work.

One book reviewer stated on Amazon summing up this book that it claims there are 5-sub types of the human body and that this book is “Supposedly based on evolutionary theory, it is claimed that distinctive traits can be foretold through analysis of outward appearance – while not considered to be a serious work by the scientific community.”

Yes, that about sums it up okay, but I’d like to advise that you read this book as it will help you in your career. Please consider all this and think on it.
