    I don't know why I sat through almost 19 minutes of this. A few good points, but she mostly just blathered on and on with a lot of conversation. If I had to hear one more "I'm gunna" I don't know what. Note to speakers: If you're going to speak in front of an audience, make sure your topic is truly new and interesting, and don't drone on and on, with people starting to count the times you lapse into slang while they patiently wait for you to conclude your remarks.

    Perhaps I am the only one who liked it; thanks for posting. I readily admit to not "getting" people. I can't read facial expressions and do not catch most subtleties, so this provides the odd "concrete" behavior to look for.

    Lately I have taken to reading a few articles published in psychological journals to gain some insight into people- so this fits in fairly nicely. It also has me considering how often I lie. I usually consider myself to be honest- but if the stats she cites are correct I must be lying to others in addition to their deceiving me at some points.
