This very brief questionnaire is aimed at helping those of us who are interested in influence and credibility to look at what tends to affect it. All input is anonymous. As best you can, try to answer the way your whole mind - which includes conscious and unconscious elements - responds, or some might say reacts. The questions get at what might be called first impressions -- those quick decisions we make without really factoring in the "why." See what you think about your own thinking. And when you finish you'll be directed to the results to see how others think as well!!! Thanks for helping us see through more eyes than just our own.
