How People Judge You by Amy Cuddy

People size you up in seconds, but what exactly are they evaluating?

Harvard Business School professor Amy Cuddy has been studying first impressions alongside fellow psychologists Susan Fiske and Peter Glick for more than 15 years, and has discovered patterns in these interactions.

Psychologists refer to these dimensions aswarmth and competence, respectively, and ideally you want to be perceived as having both.
