Review: A Harvard psychologist says people judge you based on 2 criteria when they first meet you

I have come across an article on Yahoo, “A Harvard psychologist says people judge you based on 2 criteria when they first meet you,” by Amy Cuddy.  She is a Harvard social psychologist professor.  She says the two criteria are trust and respect.  Can you trust and respect people the first time you them?  I do not think so.  This has to take time for these two qualities to be certain.  Amy Cuddy says people evaluate you from an evolutionary perspective.  That trustworthiness is the most important factor of the two (Trust and respect).  This is due to a survival factor.  Another thing she points out, students, in the case of the articles (MBA interns), concerns too much on being competent(respect factor), that they are likely to skip social events and come off as unapproachable.  This can hurt in the job market.  I am in this same boat.  I am not very social and have been looking to get into my field for over two years.  To me, I think companies in the field I went to school for, clinical research, are overlooking me.  I do not have that trust factor, but the respect factor.  I have B.S. and M.S degrees in clinical research.  That is why I have turned to the internet to look for ways to make money.  It is hard to work at Wal mart to pay back loans.  Anyways, most people that I have accounted say I am trustworthy person.  I do not believe you can tell someone is trustworthy and respectful in a first encounter.  To learn more about the article, go here:  http://finance.yahoo.com/news/harvard-psychologist-says-people-judge-153500132.html

Making Money Online-Hearing The Other Side(Readers)

First off, I would like to say, welcome.  In my first post, I spoke about a personal story that influenced me into writing articles about wanting to try to make money online.  Go here to read it, Everything You Need To Know About Getting Paid Taking Pictures!-Insider Secrets Into Earning Money.  In this post, I will speak about you, the readers, and how you all feel about making money online.  I know for me, it all revolved around my current situation.  I was a recent graduate who was/and still is buried in all this student loan debt and could not find any job opportunity in the field that I went to school for, which was clinical research.  Did any of the following situations speak to you about your current situation of wanting to make supplement income online, such as:  You were living paycheck to paycheck, had very little to no leisure time for yourself or spending with family and friends, stressing over debt and outstanding bills, always working and have very little time of sleeping etc?  If you were to make extra money online, say like, an additional $1,000/month, what would you do with that money?   Would you plan a vacation with family or friends or both, starting eating out more, putting money into a savings or retirement account (IRA), buying another home or car, investing into stocks, etc? The possibilities are endless of what someone would do if he or she had an extra $1,000/month, just throwing a random number out there.  That would be awesome.  You would  have financial freedom and would be feeling very empowering, to say the least.  There would be no more stressing over bills, working all day and having little to no sleep, worrying about your future as far as retiring comfortably, and living paycheck to paycheck with the extra money coming into your account.  With making money online, you would start feeling better and having more of a peace of mind, having better health since you would not be stressing over finance, having more of a greater sense of self-worth, and the main point, enjoying life.  That is what it is all about, loving and enjoying life.  We all only live once, so make the best of it.  Thanks for reading.  If you like, please share any experience or feeling that you have towards of making money online.  Thanks once again and hope you enjoyed reading my post.  Happy New Year!!!!
