SNOOP: THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF STUFF



Our private spaces--from boardroom to bedroom--reveal our personalities, whether we know it or not. Does what's on your desk reveal what's on your mind? Do those pictures on your walls tell true tales about you? And is your favorite outfit about to give you away? For the last ten years psychologist Sam Gosling has been studying how people project (and protect) their inner selves. By exploring our private worlds (desks, bedrooms, even our clothes and our cars), he shows not only how we showcase our personalities in unexpected--and unplanned--ways, but also how we create personality in the first place, communicate it with others, and interpret the world around us.
