1.
Personally, I think Darryl would be good.
2.
Oh, it has to be Darryl.
3.
Or someone I don't know.
4.
I thought the woman who came in, she seemed like she had a fun energy.
5.
I'm not a sexist.
6.
I just really don't want it to be a woman.

Even Andy.

1.
In a double-blind study, a representative sample of science faculty members were asked
2.
to hire a fictional student applicant for a lab-manager job.
3.
When the applicant's name was Jennifer, instead of John, they viewed her as less competent,
4.
were less likely to hire her, offered her less money, and were less likely to mentor her.
5.
And this prejudice was even exhibited by women faculty members.
6.
And that's an important point. People on both sides of the stereotype tend to respond similarly,
7.
with the subjects of prejudice themselves often holding the same stereotypical implicit
8.
attitudes or engaging in the same discriminatory behavior.

5.
It shows that you know what you have to offer.
6.
And you're so competent that you can spend time truly listening to them.
7.
And when you listen to people, you create a lot of value for both sides of the table.

A recent study at Penn State University found that when you smile,
2.
you don't only appear to be more likable and courteous,
3.
but you actually appear to be more competent.
4.
So whenever you want to look great and competent,
5.
reduce your stress or improve your marriage,
6.
or feel as if you just had a whole stack of high-quality chocolate
7.
without incurring the caloric cost,
8.
or as if you found 25 grand in a pocket of an old jacket you hadn't worn for ages,
9.
or whenever you want to tap into a superpower
10.
that will help you and everyone around you
11.
live a longer, healthier, happier life,
12.
smile.
