First Impressions

I know that first impressions matter and that you can learn some surprising things from someone just by looking at them.

What I don’t know, though, is what people think of me when they first see me.

Remember hotornot.com? It would be interesting to see such a site that rates people on some other dimensions: likability, trustworthiness, aggression, psychopathy.

And imagine tracking a group of people over time in a panel study?

I bet you’d get a good feel for social mobility over time, too.

Forget income data!
