Khazan: So what are some of the situations that you might send someone into? Like, “go give a speech?”
Hofmann: Initially, we use speaking in front of the rest of the group. In the seventh or eighth session, we go on to do more individualized exposure treatments, constructing something that we would call a “social mishap” exercise. We expose them to their worst-case scenario. For example, if someone is not engaging in any dating behaviors because they are concerned about being rejected, we would ask them to go to a restaurant and ask every woman at the table for her number. And obviously, he would get rejected a lot, and that’s the purpose of it.
Reading people has nothing to do with a psychic phenomena, illusion, or fortune telling.
It is possible to read people while carefully observing their behavior, their surroundings, and their way of using words.
There is nothing hidden in reading people, but it is necessary to interpret your findings in the correct way, and
ALWAYS IN THE RIGHT CONTEXT.
Clues to read a person are too many to list, but a few worth mentioning are:
- their body language
- their grooming or lack of it
- their hygiene or lack of it
- their social interactions
- their choice of clothing
- their choice of accessories
- where they choose to stand/sit after entering a room
- their facial expressions
- congruence of words to actions
- if or how they intrude on others
- how they speak
- what gestures they use (also shows the extend of their verbal skills)
- when/how/ how often they refer to themselves
- their home environment
- the books they read (coffee table books are hardly ever read, they are ment to give off an impression)
- the aesthetics of their environment
- the photographs they choose to display in their environment
- what you observe/hear/notice after the first impression that makes you go ‘’Oh’’ either in a good or a bad way
