An amazing study was done by Nalini Ambady that looked at CEOs’ faces. She found that people can glance at a picture of a CEO and predict how successful he or she is.

Here’s what’s crazy: People’s leadership rankings matched the pictures. In other words, people who looked the most successful were the most successful - Vanessa Van Edwards, The Science of People.
