Face Analyzing Technology Possibly Identifies Terrorists

Monday, July 11th, 2016
Share Button

A facial personality profiling technology company claims to be able to evaluate specific personality traits with 80% accuracy, including those that help to identify terrorists.

They allegedly identified nine of the eleven Paris (11-13-2015 attack) terrorists “after the fact as potential terrorists with no prior knowledge,” while only three of the eleven terrorists had a previous record.

The science behind face analysis involves genetic predisposition, the face being a reflection of DNA.

Behavioral geneticists contend that DNA predetermines a person’s physical, emotional, and psychological nature to a great extent.

I agree that key elements of a person’s character are predetermined, despite it being a politically incorrect view. Though I believe it ultimately has to do with personal fate, and DNA is merely a reflection of that.

It seems logical to me that select personality traits can be identified through face analysis, considering a thorough enough analysis involving extensive empirical research.

Physiognomy, including astrological physiognomy, has existed for over 2000 years (only superficial forms of it have been “discredited”). I regularly witness how extreme patterns represent distinct characteristics, such as saturnine temperament and, or appearance, symbolized by Saturn playing a key role in the person’s comprehensive astrology charts.

Instead of saying facial analysis can be used to “…predict a person’s personality and behavior,” I’d say it identifies personality traits.

By itself, at 80% accuracy (which is good for any single form of analysis), means twenty percent of travelers could be falsely identified as terrorists. But security experts (at least those whose hands aren’t tied by political correctness) use body language, high-tech anxiety measuring devices, sophisticated data tracking systems, and a host of other means to ferret out terrorists. Thus, people shouldn’t be concerned about being falsely labeled a criminal through facial analysis.

Revealed: Handwriting Analysis Measures Perfectionism

Monday, June 20th, 2016
Share Button

Perfectionism, or the need to be perfect, can be an immobilizing personality trait in excess and handwriting analysis effectively measures it.

A modest amount of this trait won’t hurt your productivity and keep you from reaching success, but according to this article, “The all-or-nothing, impossibly high standards perfectionists set for themselves often mean that they’re not happy even when they’ve achieved success. And research has suggested that anxiety over making mistakes may ultimately be holding some perfectionists back from ever achieving success in the first place…”

“If you look for perfection, you’ll never be content.”
Leo Tolstoy

Although it’s easy to tell someone to stop trying to be perfect, perfectionism can reflect a serious anxiety disorder; it’s just not possible for some to relax and turn off the compulsion to get it exactly right all the time.

Extreme perfectionists are never happy, and this personality trait severely limits their ability to deal with pressure and stress.

A higher than average amount of perfectionism may assist a watchmaker’s success, for example, but it only hinders the average person.

A slight tendency for perfectionism has helped many very successful people rise to the top of their field, but in excess it can be debilitating and handwriting analysis readily gauges it.

Personality Analysis Secret: How to Quickly Read Someone

Monday, June 6th, 2016
Share Button

Quickly identifying someone’s core personality traits isn’t easy, even for the shrewdest judge of character. But there’s a way to quickly get an idea of a person’s character.

According to a study referred to in this article, asking someone’s opinion about other people exposes a lot about their own personality. “The more positively they judged those people, the more happy, enthusiastic, capable and emotionally stable they turned out to be themselves…those who judged others more negatively had higher levels of narcissism and antisocial behaviour.”

You may have witnessed this phenomenon yourself; people, particularly those who lack self-awareness, tend to project their personality traits onto others.

As the old saying goes, you don’t see the world as it is, you see it as you are.

Next time you meet someone and you want to get to know the person better, ask his or her opinion of someone. A polarizing figure such as a troubled celebrity would make for a good topic of focus.

But make sure to avoid projecting your own stuff onto your new acquaintance–remain detached and avoid judgment to get the most accurate insight. Also make sure to acknowledge that being objective and honest about a miscreant who wronged someone, for example, is different.

Single out specific personality traits too, particularly if you believe the person may possess that trait. Ask if she thinks someone is duplicitous, for instance. However, the risk is that she may be clever enough to realize what you’re doing and may smoothly manipulate you to make herself appear to your liking.

Also watch their body language, which can be a very effective form of personality analysis. Spotting non-verbal cues that contrast with what the person is telling you can be very amusing (and alarming).

Although it’s tough to get to know someone’s authentic personality in a brief span of time without various forms of security investigations, you may be able to get an idea through asking the right questions.

Rationalization: Look Out For This Pernicious Trait to Limit Your Risk

Monday, May 23rd, 2016
Share Button

Rationalization is a universal human trait and most people don’t have it in excess.

Occasionally explaining away behavior such as, “…it’s okay to have extra helpings at dinner tonight because I’m going to the gym tomorrow…” or “…I’ll postpone that important task because it would be better completed tomorrow…” isn’t likely to doom anyone.

The problem is when rationalization takes on a life of its own.

Extreme cases are often a coping mechanism for the subject to deal with her early life trauma, for example.

It may be that she doesn’t intend to intentionally deceive you, but that can be the result with someone who distorts reality to the point where objective decisions are impossible.

It’s a weighty personality red flag and a serious risk to your livelihood, such as with a Wall Street dark prince who gives new meaning to the word leverage, denying the massive level of risk, and a politician who believes his own lies.

The fact is, people are not rational beings.

People do what they do in accordance with their emotional maturity and subconscious fears and defenses. They typically act emotionally and then justify their behavior by offering well-thought-out reasons that aren’t the real reasons.

Thus, occasional white lies and moderate secrecy can morph into stark hypocrisy, a complete lack of integrity, and even deviousness if a person has a serious problem with rationalization.

As suggested in this blog post, people continually act reflexively, unknowingly guided by their subconscious fears and defenses, erroneously thinking they are making conscious, objective choices.

It’s not easy to identify excessive rationalization upon first meeting someone. The out of bounds excuses and justifications aren’t likely to be immediately evident.

If you have a limited amount of time to make a decision about someone, it’s important to find out if the person is a potential risk to your business or personal life. Excessive rationalization is readily identifiable through my non-traditional security investigations.

Warning About Decision-making: The Misconception of Choice

Monday, May 16th, 2016
Share Button

The power of choice is sometimes yours, and sometimes not. The erroneous belief that you’re in absolute conscious control of your fate is as outlandish as believing you will live forever.

I’m all for inspiration—I generate inspiration every day—but put aside the rhetoric spewed by motivational speakers for a moment and consider that there are two key forces that rule your life: the power of your subconscious mind, and your personal fate—the things in your life you can’t change.

Making the right decisions in life won’t give you everything you’ve ever dreamed of, unless it’s part of your fate, because that isn’t the way things go in the real world.

You don’t need me to prove my assertions about predestination to know that there are times in your life that your faith is unexpectedly tested, you can’t control what other people do or say, and rejection and other unavoidable happenings are completely beyond your control.

A fascinating study in Psychological Science suggests “..the conscious experience of choice may be constructed after we act — even when it feels like it is the cause of our behavior.” In other words, your subconscious mind may have a lot more influence on your decision-making that you may realize.

Your subconscious fears and defenses may not be a problem for you at all. Unfortunately, until you know someone well—whether in business or your personal life—his hidden red flag personality traits could pose a serious threat. Wise decision-making includes thoroughly vetting those you allow into your life and I recommend multiple forms of scrutiny, including my unorthodox security investigations.

How to Negotiate with a Narcissist or Psychopath

Monday, May 9th, 2016

Narcissists and psychopaths can be very charming and persuasive and there is no shortage of these types of undesirables in the world.

You’re likely to encounter such jerks regularly in business or your personal life and you need a concrete plan of action to limit your risk.

One of the easiest things you can do is limit your communication to e-mail and text. Avoid in-person negotiations as much as possible.

University of British Columbia’s Michael Woodworth, professor of psychology, says, “We can also conclude that it is very likely that the qualities that allow these people to successfully charm, manipulate, intimidate or exploit others appear to require a live, in-person audience.”

Also, “…the ability to smoke out narcissists and psychopaths becomes easier…” once you “…remove non-verbal cues such as body language from the equation.”

Those other tricks of the trade that exploiters use, such as indistinct put-downs or backhanded compliments, manipulative undercurrents, or invisible poison darts are a lot more difficult to do through e-mail and text. Plus, the scoundrels realize e-mails and texts offer digital proof of their game.

Aside from the tip above about using e-mail and text, there are other ways to identify narcissists. You can limit your risk by learning to deal with undesirables. The difference between reasonable people and jerks is measurable.

A Reliable Supplement to Trusting Your Gut

Monday, May 2nd, 2016
Share Button

Trusting your gut as a consistent means of discerning the truth takes practice.

It’s rare that someone’s gut instinct is so powerful, and they trust it so implicitly, that they’re seldom wrong.

Most people struggle with the intermittent battle between intuition and reason, with the power of the subconscious mind dominating behavior far more than acknowledged.

This article lists some helpful tips to strengthen your gut instinct. In particular, giving yourself time constraints in making a decision based on your gut instinct, such as thirty minutes, helps to make your intuition a stronger part of your decision-making process.

Even though I value gut instinct, I recommend having multiple sources, including my nontraditional security investigations, to supplement your intuition.

Key decisions are too easily influenced by hidden biases or an emotional attachment to the outcome. The cost of objective decision-making supplements is immaterial compared to the expense and security risk of a bad decision.

Handwriting Analysis and IQ Score–Q & A

Monday, March 7th, 2016
Share Button

Handwriting analysis is one of my favorite ways to analyze personality but it won’t tell you your IQ score.

Question:
“Does my terrible handwriting have anything to do with a lower IQ?”

Answer:
No, it doesn’t.

Untrained in handwriting analysis, what you interpret to be terrible handwriting may not include any personality red flags at all.

How it looks to the average person has almost nothing to do with authentic character hidden within over 300 handwriting analysis indicators.

Many very intelligent and successful people have what appears to be terrible handwriting.

Also, many sociopaths have what appears to be impeccable handwriting.

An Intelligence Quotient measures problem-solving abilities, yet according to this article, an IQ score doesn’t measure emotional intelligence or “…knowing how to make things work…(practical intelligence)…”

Perhaps a high IQ score largely reflects a talent for taking IQ tests.

Handwriting analysis effectively measures innumerable factors related to human intelligence, including logical thinking and ability to make distinctions—many traits that have to do with practical intelligence (that the IQ tests don’t measure).

“In other words, the better they did on the IQ test, the worse they did on the practical test and the better they did on the practical tests, the worse they did on the IQ test.” Robert Sternberg

Compatibility Secret Revealed: The Real Reason You Click

Monday, February 22nd, 2016
Share Button

The anatomy of a two-person connection in which either extreme—great harmony or absolute discord—prevails isn’t a mystery to me.

I realize my views are controversial, but I simply report the results of my empirical research. My long-term findings show the way things are between two people is a natural, unique condition that can’t be altered.

It fascinates me to delve into the fundamentals of a congenial business partnership or personal relationship, or the opposite, one with incessant conflict.

Time and time again, the extremes in the comprehensive patterns of my systems of analysis are striking, imitating life.

Taking the advice, “just try to get along,” ultimately won’t make much of a difference, just as thinking warm thoughts won’t allow you to avoid frostbite.

The following considerations are often cited for the level of harmony between two people, but in reality it’s more about their innate compatibility.

  1. Problematic subconscious fears and defenses including personality red flags such as stubbornness, excessive bias, dishonesty, vanity, jealousy, irrationality, and resentment make a connection between you and another person worse, but they are separate from the unique, innate level of harmony.
  2. While tact, modesty, sincerity, objectivity, dependability, emotional maturity, discretion, and other admirable qualities serve to enhance partnerships, both partners having these qualities in excess and lacking red flag personality traits still won’t override a horrendous, inherent bond.
  3. The destructive and remorseless behavior of a sociopath is unconnected to your inborn connection with her.
  4. Having similar values and interests have nothing to do with the actual, natural level of harmony between you and other person.
  5. Having the same sort of background has nothing to do with the innate compatibility between two people.

The real reason you click with another person is because the unique, measurable energy is simply amiable.

Whether you’re, “willing to work at it,” or not is immaterial.

Authentic compatibility is not a choice, it’s unvarying and endures forever, and each two-person connection is different.

Decision-making Ability Revealed Through Handwriting Analysis

Monday, February 15th, 2016

Decision-making ability is necessary to be successful in life and handwriting analysis effectively measures this important character trait.

“A director makes 100 decisions an hour. Students ask me how you know how to make the right decision, and I say to them, ‘If you don’t know how to make the right decision, you’re not a director.’” George Lucas

A good leader must have good decision-making ability. She is decisive, not vacillating, and lacks fear of finality.

Good decision-making ability greatly increases your potential for success in life, as do these three specific personality traits.

This Entrepreneur article outlines seven important points to help you improve your decision-making ability, including avoiding the temptation to make snap decisions just because the circumstances seem familiar. A very common mistake is ignoring the inherent risk of relying entirely on your gut instinct.

You need clarity to make decisions, and my findings underscore the adage that timing matters. Life consists of never-ending, various phases of time, some rewarding and some challenging.

As I say in this blog post, “Select ominous periods of time relate to everyone, such as during phases of concurrent universal afflictions, but much more often it’s more personal, as related to comprehensive natal and timing charts. Sometimes it’s both. The periods can last for months (even years), or for days or mere hours.”

You can strive to make the most of your circumstances by working through your decision-making process when your timing is most favorable.

Handwriting analysis, part of my unconventional security investigations, is a reliable method to identify decision-making ability.
