A woman's beauty really IS most important thing to a man - but for women, it's social status

A woman's beauty really IS most important thing to a man - but for women, it's social status

It may seem like an obvious statement that men value beauty in women while women prefer men with a high social status.

But in recent years, a number of studies have undermined this view by claiming that men and women really want the same thing in a romantic partner- even if they say they don't.

Now researchers believe they have finally got to the bottom of what men and women really want, and their findings support traditional stereotypes.

The research contradicts recently popularised speed-dating studies that have found preferences in men and women do not match up with how they actually evaluate and choose speed-dating partners

Published in this month’s Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the study is the first to demonstrate experimentally that the sexes differ in the way they choose mates in real-life contexts.

The research contradicts recent speed-dating studies that have found preferences in men and women do not match up with how they actually evaluate and choose speed-dating partners.

8 Great Tricks For Reading People's Body Language

8 Great Tricks For Reading People's Body Language

Body language provides an amazing amount of information on what other people are thinking if you know what to look for. And who hasn’t wanted to read people’s minds at some point?

You already pick up on more body language cues than you’re consciously aware of. UCLA research has shown that only 7% of communication is based on the actual words we say. As for the rest, 38% comes from tone of voice and the remaining 55% comes from body language. Learning how to become aware of and to interpret that 55% can give you a leg up with other people.

When you’re working hard and doing all you can to achieve your goals, anything that can give you an edge is powerful and will streamline your path to success.

TalentSmart
has tested more than a million people and found that the upper echelons of top performance are filled with people who are high in emotional intelligence (90% of top performers, to be exact). These people know the power that unspoken signals have in communication, and they monitor body language accordingly.

Next time you’re in a meeting (or even on a date or playing with your kids), watch for these cues:

Crossed arms and legs signal resistance to your ideas.

Half Of Teens Say They Feel Addicted To Their Devices

Half Of Teens Say They Feel Addicted To Their Devices

Research is still emerging about whether technology addiction fits the classic definition of an addiction disorder, but many people certainly feel addicted, according to a new survey.

Half of all teens reported feeling addicted to their mobile devices, and 28 percent said their parents are addicted too, according to a nationally representative survey of 1,200 parents and children conducted by the non-profit media advocacy organization Common Sense Media. From the parents’ perspective, 59 percent of them feel that their teens are addicted to their mobile devices, and 27 percent feel that they themselves are addicted, too. 

This perceived unhealthy relationship with devices is frequently a source of family tension, the survey suggests, as 77 percent of parents feel that their teens get distracted by their devices and don’t pay attention when parent and child are together, and 44 percent of teens feel the same way about their parents....

Top 10 Cities To Find Great Jobs

Top 10 Cities To Find Great Jobs

When thinking of relocation, Americans consider an area’s job prospects as among the most important factors. While other factors such as the school system or the cost of housing may play a role, a job ensures the viability of the relocation. Of course, one person’s great job may not suit another person’s skill set. Still, some cities offer more jobs in more fields. And for those seeking a dream job — some cities are better than others, according to a report published Wednesday by job review website Glassdoor.

Glassdoor considered four aspects of U.S. metro areas: job opportunities, affordability, job satisfaction, and work-life balance. The report identified the 25 best cities for jobs. The San Jose, California, metro area, which includes also Sunnyvale and Santa Clara, leads the nation. The Hartford, Connecticut, metro area rounds out the top 25.

The top four cities for jobs — the Boston, Massachusetts, Seattle, Washington, San Francisco, California, and San Jose California metro areas — all have well-established and rapidly expanding technology sectors. Home to Silicon Valley, San Jose has become a magnet for young professionals seeking high paying technology positions. The typical area worker earns well over $100,000 a year.

How Unhappy Employees Can Cost Your Company Millions

How Unhappy Employees Can Cost Your Company Millions

Unhappy employees cost companies worldwide billions of dollars per year in lost revenues, settlements and various other damages. The loss of revenue can send well-known companies into financial distress, with some filing for bankruptcy. Employee negligence due to dissatisfaction with their employer leads to much of the financial losses suffered by major brands and companies of all sizes.

Decreased Productivity

If an employee is not happy with his or her job, it will show in his or her productivity. Employees putting off work means that they simply do not want to do it, so they will procrastinate until the very last moment and rush through completing a task. This leads to poor quality control standards, unsafe products and dangers to consumers.

It is vital that supervisory staff stays on-top of the production staff. Consider offering a weekly anonymous poll to employees. Their answers will let superior staff know where they stand on being satisfied with their jobs on multiple levels. Following the feedback from employees, companies can make changes to increase productivity, boost morale and improve quality assurance standards to ensure that safe products, happy employees,...

Life’s Short. Choose Joy!

Life’s Short. Choose Joy!joy

Have you ever had days — or weeks, or months — where things feel overwhelming? Bills are piling up, people aren’t returning your calls, and it seems like you’ve done all that you can do, but still things aren’t happening the way you’d like them to?

Do you ever just want to call a time-out and say, “This is not what I signed up for?!”

If only you could control other people things might be closer to perfect. If by some magic mind trick you could make the client call and green light their project, turn your kids into perfect angels, or suddenly manifest a spouse who remembered to pick up the laundry and take out the trash.

Unfortunately, that kind of power is really just a fantasy, or at best, an illusion. The only things we ever really get to control are our own thoughts and actions. But the good news is, we still have a lot of say in how we go through life and experience the world.

Most people have something going on that is causing them stress — a money issue, a health concern, a troublesome relationship or some other matter. What’s interesting is that sometimes the smallest shift in our own perception of the situation can actually make the biggest difference.

Everyone and everything is constantly emitting energy. Have you ever met someone and immediately liked them — or had the opposite reaction? The way that you feel about the person is, in those first moments, your instinctual reaction to their...

10 Things Never to Say to Your Co-Workers

10 Things Never to Say to Your Co-Workers

Whether you love your co-workers or hate them, you're stuck with them for hours each day—and they're stuck with you. If you're not thoughtful about what you say to each other, you can make one another uncomfortable or even miserable—and can harm your professional reputation too.

Here are 10 things you should never say at work.

1. "Are you pregnant?" If someone wants you to know she's pregnant, she'll tell you. Until and unless that happens, assume it's none of your business—and asking is a good way to offend most women, pregnant or not.

2. "You owe $10 for this gift for the boss." Many workers don't want to budget for going-away or shower gifts for co-workers and resent being asked to give up their hard-earned cash. That's doubly true when the collection is being taken up for the boss, who presumably earns more than them. Besides, etiquette rules say that gifts in the workplace should flow downward, not upward.

3. "You're so skinny! Why aren't you eating?" Commenting on other people's bodies should be off-limits in the workplace, even if you intend it as an expression of concern. Your co-workers are there to work, not to have their...

How to Get Along with a Coworker You Hate

 How to Get Along with a Coworker You Hate

By Cheryl Stein, Monster Canada Personal Coach

The reality of life is that sometimes we have to work with people we don't like. Worse than that, sometimes we end up working with people we absolutely hate and wish we could vaporize into oblivion. Although making people disappear is not a good (or viable!) option, these six ways can help you make the problem disappear.

1. Be Brutally Honest with Your Coworker

Confronting the person who is making you sick and telling him really nicely what he’s doing to make your workday awful can sometimes get him to stop. Much of the time, people are completely oblivious to how their behavior makes other people feel. Bringing their lousy behavior to their attention can be the wake-up call they need to change their ways.

2. Rise Above Bad Workplace Behavior

Is there any way to ignore or avoid the person who’s driving you crazy? Like your mother taught you when you were little, pretending that you aren’t affected by the way someone is behaving can get him to stop -- especially if he’s behaving in a way that is intentionally aimed at hurting you.

3. Reframe Your Perspective

A good coaching exercise is to focus on the good qualities this person possesses. This act of appreciation can get you to notice when she is being nice and help you ignore her when she’s being nasty. Try...

My Coworker Takes All The Credit For The Work We Do Together

My Coworker Takes All The Credit For The Work We Do Together

This article is one of the top 10 most uncomfortable work situations of 2015. See the full list here.

Collaboration is more than just a buzzword. It's an important tool to many great ideas. But when one member of a team doesn't want to share the spotlight, egos can get bruised.

Psychologist Art Markman helps a reader with a coworker who seems to have forgotten that there is no "I" in team.

Hi,

I work closely with one of my colleagues on my team, and we almost always present ideas and projects to our boss together. We work well together, but he always talks over me when we present, and says, "I thought" or "I did," even when we both came up with the idea (or worse, when I did!)

How can I make myself stand out for promotions and raises, when he’s taking all of my glory? I don’t want to say, "Actually, that was my idea," because that seems like it would come across as petty. Any other way I can approach this?


This is frustrating, but it can be a common experience.

There are two elements to what is going on here. One has to do with the way your colleague is speaking. The second, though, has to do with your own behavior in meetings with the boss.

First, you should have a conversation...

7 Qualities You Should Never Settle On In A Relationship

7 Qualities You Should Never Settle On In A Relationship

You can settle on plenty of things in life: Where to have dinner for your mom’s birthday, for instance, or booking the less expensive, but just as nice resort for your next vacation. 

One thing you should never settle on? Your relationships. Below, marriage experts share seven qualities you should never accept in a relationship. 

1. A partner who won’t give the relationship 100 percent. 

Fall in love with someone who’s keenly interested in keeping your relationship happy, healthy and fresh, not someone who tends to tune out and let you do the heavy lifting, said Carin Goldstein, a marriage and family therapist in Sherman Oaks, California. 

“The worse thing is being in a relationship where your partner is unable to self reflect,” she said. “They need to recognize how their actions affect the relationship.”

2.  A partner who can’t say “I was wrong.”  

It’s vital that you’re with someone who can admit her mistakes, said Gal Szekely, the founder of the Couples Center for therapy...
