Ace An Interview With This Simple Trick (VIDEO)

Staying to the middle doesn't mean you're middle-of-the-road.

Au contraire, a new video explains.

Placing yourself in the center of a group will help you master a business meeting or job interview.

"We tend to unconsciously think those toward the middle of the group are more important," psychologist and author Richard Wiseman says in the "59 Seconds" segment (above).

Wiseman, who isn't the only one studying such office subtleties, uses a game show to back up his advice. Watch for yourself, then prepare to take center stage the next time you go to a meeting.
