Will the Winner of the Election be the More Likeable - or Credible - Guy?

I like to say that consistency over time equals credibility. But is likeability – a seemingly more shallow quality – just as important?

I ask this question on account of the presidential election. You have to go back to 1972 – Richard Nixon beating George McGovern – to find the last time the more likeable candidate didn’t win the presidency.

That can’t be a coincidence.

Of course, every president needs credibility. But it seems that no one will listen to him – he won’t even get the job - if he’s not likeable in the first place.

At work, we try to be thoughtful, and fair, and respectful with our colleagues. But do we do enough to be liked by them, as well?

What about in our personal relationships?

If we made an effort to be more likeable, would people be more receptive to us, as they are to the presidential candidates?

Is likeability as important as credibility? I don’t have the answer. I’m asking.

When we eat our Wheaties in the morning, we may all want to sprinkle some likeability powder in there, just to be safe.


  • I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
