7. Lüscher's Color Personality Test
The first minute in an employment interview is a very critical and nervous moment. The meeting participants present themselves with their names, but usually the applicant is too nervous to remember. That, they know and the leader of the meeting will therefore, seemingly by random, mention the names of the participants later during the course of the meeting.
But if you could remember the names right from the start, it would be a great advantage. All people will feel warm at heart, when someone mentions their name, and also it will serve to demonstrate that you have control over the situation, if you right from the start of the interview are able to look the interview participants in their eyes and address them by name.
