Predicting Elections When Both the World Economy and the Psychology of Faces Count’ in a Brown Bag seminar at the University of Lausanne, where professor Antonakis holds a chair in Organizational Behavior. John Antonakis is known for his work on charisma,
transformational leadership, and leader research methods . His famous article "Predicting Elections: Child's Play" published in the prestigious journal Scienceshows that even little children are able to predict results of election outcomes, merely by rating politician’s faces.
