I'm in position where every day I have to judge the character and abilities of people in order to do my job. I have to do it quickly and decisively. Although I have never doubted my ability to do so, in quiet moments, I wonder whether I've been right all along or whether I've just never been proven wrong. Can someone point me to studies of the validity of character judgements? What's the likelihood that I'm right when I judge people?

In those quiet moments, sometimes I wonder whether it's my own prejudices or whether it's some intuition or innate ability that leads me to my conclusions about the characters of people.
