    Hi Linda,

    This is one of the great talk I have ever watched.
    It is so trivial, issues that we ignore and take it for granted. If you come up with another handbook on the individual behaviour,it will be guiding book for each one who makes conclusions on another individual.
    Linda, You once again rock !!. I enjoy all your videos at InfoQ website..
