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.

In my last post, Money-I Have Been Searching, I wrote about finding more than just making money online. I developed relationships with people through forums and other sites I had gone on in order to make money online. In this post, this will be a continuation from my last one.
Throughout my week long journey of finding ways to make money online, it has helped me grow, personally. I felt like I connected better with people than I have ever had before, because I am typically a reserved type person. I do not usually opened up to people that easy. I had felt very warmed and welcomed through the forums, sites into the communities of online people. This has made my experience on searching for ways to make money online very fun and exciting. At first for me, I felt scared. I did not know how people would treat me when I may ask them for help on ways of making money online. The experience had better than I was expecting. The amount of support was overwhelming. People were sending me links and other sites to my inboxes that would be useful to me in getting started on making money online. I know I cannot speak for everyone, but if you are someone who has thought of trying to make money online, you should go for it. There are ton of people who are willing and want to help you. Like I mentioned earlier, I was scared and kind of skeptical of finding ways to make money. I did not want to feel like I am bothering something if I were to ask for help; did not want to run into a lot of scams. Anyone can asks for help, like on a website called Quora, where people can go on an ask on ways to make money, or ask, do you think is a good site or a scam, etc. People will be very warming and be willing to answer any question that you may have. People online want to see other people succeed as well. That is what has my experience online so much fun. It is about connecting and building relationships with one another and wanting the best for each other. Thanks for reading. Please share, comment, and like.
