Evil, I know exactly where you are coming from. I often feel as though I throw out some pretty darn good ideas from time to time, but that because of my generic brand wrapper, they get overlooked. Boo hoo, wah wah. I guess I should go into consulting. I'm still in my twenties so maybe that'd increase my chances of getting the job!

Ah, I remember the good old days of being in consulting. Watching colleagues in their early twenties tell CEO's how to run their business, and be taken seriously. I don't get it. I just can't see the wrapper being that important.

Michael--I'm amazed that I didn't even think about looks. I just thought about titles.

I guess I should think more.

I love McDonald's chicken nuggets. Yes, I know--parts are parts--and all that, but for some reason, I love it.

I thought you might go in a different direction with your "what's in a wrapper" post. When I saw the same article, I thought of appearance bias. We are about due for another round of surveys or articles about how good looking people get better jobs, raises, and service for no other reason then they are attractive. To use a cliché, perceptions are reality. Isn't that why companies spend millions on advertising?

Your point on evaluating people and their ideas on their merits is intellectually unassailable. However, if it were universally practiced, society wouldn't need laws against discrimination and job bias. Discrimination is, at least partially, a bias based on the wrapper, rather than the content.

Finally, maybe the really handsome or pretty intern would get his or her ideas noticed…. or at least get noticed enough to get a better job, raise, or evaluation.

P.S. I love McDonald's food.
