Re: Likeability factor
@David - Oh yes, I remember that show because I became part of your posse then! :) Isn't it ironic that when put to the test, most people have trouble self-assessing themselves accurately or as others do?

If a person knows how to incorporate external feedback from others into their perceived identity it can be beneficial in the workplace. Here's a little I/O Psychology tidbit for you: those scoring highest on a scale called Identiy Integration on various self-assement instruments typically have better on-the-job performance scores.  Makes sense really.

It just goes to show how lousy we are at knowing who we are and what is good for us. I just read an article about a similar subject: The Costanza Principle
