Would you ever start a cult? Would you ever join a cult? http://bit.ly/1PpKfJW
Whether you have an idea, a book or a thought, I believe you can use the psychology of cults. Yes, I want to teach you how to start a cult.

Vanessa,
Thank you for this, as it made me find your Website. I have been a "people watcher" for as long as I can recall and at 76yrs it is nice to find someone as young as you with the skills that you obviously have .I have one question for you. When did you realise that you had the capability to read people and how did it make you feel? (ok two questions)

Ever wonder why women are so complicated? http://bit.ly/1PpNoJH
Even as a woman, sometimes I don't understand why women are so complicated. Let's take a look at a "Dating in the Dark" episode to see if we can figure it out.

I do not believe in "soulmates". I think that people change so much from when they are young, and that the person who is the right fit for you at 20 years may not be the right fit at 50 years.

Do you believe in soulmates? http://bit.ly/1WRzh8E
Do you believe in soulmates? I found a set of amazing research looking at whether the belief in soulmates helps or hurts us.

Even If there is no such thing as soulmates, I think it is still important to have that belief and something to hold onto!
