 How to Profile People

PostSubject: How to Profile People   Fri Mar 01, 2013 12:10 am

1. Understand that you must have a basic knowledge of people. Many people walk just to get from Point A to Point B, but have you ever stopped on the side and watched others?

  • How fast are they moving? If someone is in a hurry, they'll typically speed-walk and try to dodge others as much as possible trying to get to their destination, while someone whom is walking at a slow pace may be taking their time and enjoying the world around them.
  • Are they with someone else? How are they acting around them? Holding hands with someone will suggest a strong bond, relationship, or family.
  • How do they react to sudden things in public? If they burp, do they make it conspicuous or do they try to conceal it? Burping, sneezing, and coughing in different ways can separate those whom exercise proper etiquette from the ones that don't.

2. Study their body language, from head to toe. Many people can judge others based on their basic eye, lip, and hand movements. This is the time to think outside of the box and study how they act around others.

  • Impatient people tend to tap their feet more at a stand-still position than relaxed individuals. They're also always fidgeting with something, such as lip biting, sighing, or looking at their watch/phone more than needed.

3. Become a better listener in how people communicate. You need to identify several aspects of how they talk, and may have to put native accents on the side. Make sure that you're aware and can differentiate between sarcasm, exaggerations, slang, and other verbal expressions used in a conversation. Watch the context flow of words being used, as it would signal to you if they have a good educational background or making themselves sound smarter than they really are.

4. Put the listening skills and body language observations together.

  • How do they personally communicate with you?
  • Are they looking straight in your eye or off to the side? Do their eyes stray away when asked for an honest answer? Look what paths the eyes goes when detecting lies.
  • How do they sit? Slouching casts off as the lazy type, while a stiff and upright back means that they are alert and focused.
  • Do they communicate with you in a mature or immature manner? This would give you a better sense of their highest completed education level and vocabulary knowledge.
  • How do they react physically? Do they fidget often or throw things around? This may be a sign of being threatened emotionally.
  • Where are their hands? When people tend to defend themselves, their hands are typically crossed over their chest or on their hips. If it's in their pockets, they might be hiding something or insecure. People whom tend to use their arms and hands more in conversations may be more visually structured than those whom keep their hands to themselves.
  • Do they shift their verbal and body movements during the conversation?

5. View how people are dressed and look like. Just like cars and homes, one can interpret on the person's organization skills on how they dress and present themselves.

  • Are their clothes tucked in or hanging casually loose? Are they suited for a business environment or casual vacation? Does it look professional or fitted for someone living in the outskirts?
  • What about their hairstyle? Does it look like they spent time on it or more of a simple "look in a mirror and quickly approve"? The "look and go" kinds of people may harvest an "as long as it looks halfway decent" personality than actually going through and seeing if it is the best they can do for a public appearance.
  • What kind of footwear do they have on? Do they take pride in having their shoes shined or do sandals have that last "wear and tear" to them?

6. Evaluate their self-composure while around others. Some people tend to be nervous, especially in crowded areas, and think of any way they can to avoid being there.


  • Profiling people is used in every day situations, from interviewing possible employees to playing poker.

Dark Ghost,
Cool stuff. Thanks for posting this. It was good advice.

Mystery Man,
Sherlock Holmes wasn't a real person but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle the author had based him off his college professor when he was taking classes to be a Doctor. He never had any patients so while in his office, he would write the Sherlock Holmes stories.

I already knew about it except I discovered something ells. Sherlock Holmes was a real person that worked for Scotland Yard but died a mysterious death. The real Sherlock Holmes also was not very poplar as it portrays in the story's in fact there was several colleges that loathed him because Sherlock was always showing them up. There was also more than one person that wrote the stories. One person was writing the stories around the theories that Scotland Yard had about Sherlock Holmes's Death in witch Scotland Yard suspected foul play but they could not find any evidence to prove such. Another theory was Sherlock Holmes accidentally poisoned him self another suggested he committed suicide. It is also believed that a person like Sherlock Holmes existed but his name was not Sherlock Holmes.
