Another measure of research efficiency and one that would be easier to use in the classroom would be the time it takes to find the answer.

The secondary misinterpretation of Mehrabian’s research

Speaking about Presenting

However, I disagree with his interpretation of Mehrabian’s research and in a moment I’ll show you why. The research measured the observers’ judgement of the speaker’s feelings about the listener- not the listener’s feelings about the speaker. Note: For more information on Mehrabian’s 1967 research see Mehrabian’s studies in nonverbal communication. The words “trust&# and “believable&# are found nowhere in the original research.

Speaking about Presenting

In the communications and presentations industry there are generally just two research studies that are quoted when talking about the importance of nonverbal communication. Based on the fact that these are just about the only studies on nonverbal communication ever quoted by communications consultants, you would think that these were the only pieces of research ever done on nonverbal communication. In this post, I look at the other research on nonverbal communication.

Research Lag - Network TV Programming Still Featuring AA

Yet, research has documented that AA is only 5% successful. Research has come a long way since then.  Last night the rerun of "Criminal Minds" featured unit leader Strauss' sobriety in AA. The tragedy was that the bad guy forced her to drink. A recent new episode of "Grey's Anatomy" had a doctor discussing his ability to stay away from the booze through AA and a friend's relapse.

The Pew Research Center, the gold standard in polling, has gotten the message: Don't call us for your research. As Pew itself reports, it is switching to taking surveys via email. In 1997, 36% of those contacted by phone agreed to participate in the survey. In 2017, that declined to 7%. And in 2018, it went down another percentage point to 6.

Content-Creators - You're Offered Peanuts for Your Research, Thinking, and Actual Content

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Increasingly, it happens. The "it" is investing thought and time into preparing a cover letter for a help-wanted, both for full-time jobs and for contract assignments. The return email, text, or phone call offers peanuts. But before that you are told you will have to take a three-hour timed unpaid test. 1) You don't have to respond at all. 2) If responding, you can simply insert. 3) You can consider leveraging your background to another career path.

The speechwriter or ghostwriter has to research what evokes positive emotion in that particular audience or target markets.

Two Years of Research, Forty-Six Words

Duarte Blog

Nancy Duarte spent “two years working nights and weekends&# writing Resonate , and Forbes’ Bruce Upbin managed to boil it down to forty-six words. Actually, I’m not even mad. That’s amazing. The conclusions are: Don’t be too cerebral. Tell stories. Figure out what the audience cares about. Create common ground with them. Move back and forth between opposing ideas to create energy. Deliver facts but put them in context and make them shocking if possible.
