I haven’t decided what I think about LinkedIn. On the one hand, it seems like a lot of people use it; on the other hand, I’m not entirely sure why. Yes, I have an account, and I have “links” of people, but I don’t use it for contacting or soliciting clients (as far as I know, I’ve never gotten a new client from it).
As an information junkie, however, I do check out the headlines and occasionally read the articles published through LinkedIn. This article by Dharmesh Shah was pretty insightful – not only because the list of qualities of confident people is spot on, but because the implied characteristics of insecure people is also accurate.
Please take a minute to check out the article.
