A radically new way to read people's body language
Another day, another cheeky/sneaky podcast recommendation. I've talked about the Art of Charm a million times over, so I'm going to stick to the specific guest who was on their show recently: Chase Hughes. The topic of this podcast episode was body language. Now, I know what you're thinking: "Probably yet another lecture about all kinds of lifehacks with body language."
Don't worry, this is very different.
Mr. Hughes has been in the US military for over 20 years and teaches interrogation and behavior science on a tactical level. He explains his fascinating tool called The Behavioral Table of The Elements, which is like the Periodic Table in chemistry, which you can use to accurately analyze the body language of other people. It's an easily downloadable JPG file, although it might seem a bit overwhelming at first if you don't listen to the episode along with it. I honestly never even knew that we are capable of such an extraordinary amount of microexpressions.
His book seems very interesting as well, so if you're in the reading mood (which you always should be!) then go for it!
I also put a link to this podcast episode and the table itself in the "useful stuff" category (which is updated regularly, so make sure to check it from time to time).
See you, Space Cowboy.
Technology’s grip and domination over our lives — socially, economically, politically — is set to increase even more in the coming years. However, our online and technological lives are in the hands of just five companies. Is it safe to give this much power to so few companies?
What are the first images/words that come to your mind when you hear the phrase “serving your country”? If you’re like most people, it’ll probably be something related to the military, which is why I argue that serving your country should be, and really is, so much broader than just the Armed Forces.
Self-improvement is great... but not all the time. Let’s see what the Thinkers of The Internet have to say about the evil sides of this "mainstream" obsession.

As flattered as I am that you read my blog, there are other useful things you could and should be doing with your time. Here are my 10 suggestions for these things.
Are you also one of those people that uses LinkedIn only when looking for a job? Don't worry, I was the same until I learned to use the platform in a far more powerful manner.
Being a perfectionist has a pretty negative stigma attached to it. By drawing parallels with the character Cell from Dragonball Z, I argue that pursuing perfection should actually be lauded as a noble endeavor, as long it's the right type of perfection.
If you're in the process of job hunting, you'll probably have to do job interviews sometime soon. Based on my experience of doing (mostly phone) interviews, here are my tips and insights on the matter.
Why is passion one of the most discussed topics on the internet? I don't know, but I'm not here to give you another one of those just-find-your-passion articles. Time for a more refreshing take on the issue of finding your passion.
