Princeton Professor Alex Todorov did an experiment where he showed people pictures on candidates running for local office. He found that with nothing but a picture, people could guess who won about 70% of the time! Todorov found that people look for trust & competence in someone they're considering voting for. If simply a picture can get you elected, how important is your own LinkedIn profile?
