We’ve got six job interview tricks for you that are all backed by science. And most of them seem like they’d probably work on a first date too . . .
1. Visualize a good interview. Studies have shown that athletes do better when they visualize themselves doing well. And it works with interviews too.
2. Stop saying you’re “nervous” beforehand, and start saying you’re “excited.” Anxiety and excitement are similar emotions. If you tell yourself out loud that you’re “excited” instead of “nervous,” it actually calms you down.
3. Have a ritual before each interview. It can be something small, like listening to the same song before you go in. Studies have shown that rituals can reduce your heart rate, help you concentrate, and make you feel more in control.
4. Start with small talk. Like the weather, or how crazy traffic was on your way over. Studies have found you’re more likely to get a job if you start out with some meaningless chitchat, because it builds trust.
5. Get ready to brag. Studies have found women tend to be more reluctant to do it than men. One trick is to pretend you’re bragging about a friend instead of yourself.
6. Don’t over-rehearse for it. You’ll sound scripted if you do. Plus, making a mistake isn’t always a bad thing. There’s something called the “pratfall effect,” where you actually seem MORE likeable if you make a mistake or trip over a word.
Making Your Bed Every Morning Is Bad for You
An article called “Why You Should NEVER Make Your Bed” is making the rounds. It’s based on a study that came out in 2005, but most people never heard about it. Basically, the study found it’s healthier if you DON’T make your bed.
Here’s the science, and prepare to be grossed out: The average bed has up to 1.5 million DUST MITES living in it. They’re microscopic . . . feed on dead skin that flakes off your body . . . and every bed has them.
They’re bad because they produce allergens that you inhale while you’re sleeping, which can make allergies worse, or even cause asthma attacks. Here’s why making your bed matters . . .
The mites need a warm, moist environment to survive. Which is exactly what your bed is, because you sweat a lot at night, and it ends up in your sheets and your mattress. And if you make your bed as soon as you wake up, it traps all that moisture in.
But if you DON’T make your bed, it dries out because it’s exposed to light and fresh air, which kills a lot of the dust mites. So the best thing to do is not make your bed at all. Or if you HAVE to, wait until right before you go to sleep.

Making Your Bed
A team of psychologists and neuroscientists at Zhejiang University in China just proved what everyone already knew . . . that men will do ANYTHING for a hot chick.
For the study, they had men play a negotiating game with different women. And the more attractive the woman, the more likely the guy was to take whatever stupid and unfair deal she proposed to him.
And the guys would accept it almost immediately . . . they wouldn’t pause to debate it at all. Basically, when a hot woman asked them to do something, they did it . . . no questions asked.
The researchers say it proves attractiveness makes men do stupid things. Although we’re not sure anyone questioned whether that’s the case. Maybe next they’ll prove that donuts are delicious, or that “The Godfather Part Three” was a disappointment?
They didn’t test whether handsome men have the same effect on women.
