Gladwell on Profiling

Dangerous Minds

http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2007/11/12/071112fa_fact_gladwell

Gladwell exposes profilers for what they are, i.e., bullshitters.  Illustrates connection between profiling and cold reading.

As usual with Gladwell, not much by way of real intellectual innovation, but its an entertaining read.
