Snoop: What Your Stuff Says About You

by Sam Gosling

BF 323 .S63 G67 2008

“Do the things on your desk betray the thoughts on your mind?  Does your dining room decor carry clues to your character?  For the last ten years, award-winning psychologist Sam Gosling has been studying how we project (and protect) our inner selves.  One of the field’s most innovative researchers, he has dispatched teams of scientific snoops to poke around bedrooms and offices, check out iPods, and peek at personal web sites – to see what can be learned about us simply from looking at our stuff.  What he has discovered is astonishing: When it comes to the most essential components of our personality – from friendliness and flexibility to openness and originality – the things we own and the way we arrange them can say more about who we are than even our most intimate conversations.” — book jacket
