Publisher's Summary

Have you ever felt you're not getting through to the person you're talking to or not coming across the way you intend? You're not alone. That's the bad news. But there is something we can do about it. Heidi Grant Halvorson, social psychologist and best-selling author, explains why we're often misunderstood and how we can fix that.

Most of us assume that other people see us as we see ourselves and that they see us as we truly are. But neither is true. Our everyday interactions are colored by subtle biases that distort how others see us - and shape our perceptions of them. You can learn to clarify the message you're sending once you understand the lenses that shape perception:

  • Trust. Are you friend or foe?
  • Power. How much influence do you have over me?
  • Ego. Do you make me feel insecure?

Based on decades of research in psychology and social science, Halvorson explains how these lenses affect our interactions - and how to manage them. Once you understand the science of perception, you'll communicate more clearly, send the messages you intend to send, and improve your personal relationships. You'll also become a fairer and more accurate judge of others. Halvorson even offers an evidence-based action plan for repairing a damaged reputation.

This audiobook is not about making a good impression, although it will certainly help you do that. It's about coming across as you intend. It's about the authenticity we all strive for.

    Story
    "this book was a waste of time"

    in his book the author says she asked her husband what kind of book he would read. He had not read any of the author's other books. That should have been a red flag.

    This book provides a thorough review of the field of social psychology. But does not provide the tools to apply that information.
