How face signals may be giving you a false impression
The subtle cues or unconscious biases that may impact your hiring decisions
According to research, we make up our minds about others after seeing their faces for just milliseconds. And these instincts take place when we’re hiring. Do we like her? Trust him? Or think this person is competent? These snap judgments are almost always wrong and may play big role in many poor hiring decisions. Alexander Todorov’s cutting-edge research and latest book explores the scientific story behind first impressions. His research has examined how politicians who look more competent are more likely to win elections. Our first impressions are based on familiarity and stereotypes of others we have seen before. “Halo effects” make us think we can understand strangers from their faces. This interactive webinar will help you recognize the biases that may impact your decisions. Explore your perceptions with computer-generated faces morphed to show common features often associated with personality traits.
