Adam Galinsky, now the Vikram S. Pandit Professor of Business at Columbia Business School, and his colleagues famously tested this technique in 2008 while examining how people perceive themselves when they feel powerful or powerless.

In one experiment, Galinsky asked half of his 57 subjects to write an essay about a time when they felt powerful; the other half wrote of a time when they felt less power. Subjects then read a set of instructions that they believed would test their coordination. In the first task, participants used their dominant hands to snap five times as quickly as possible. In the second, they used their dominant hands to write an E on their forehead with a marker.

Those who wrote about moments of high power more often wrote the E so that a person facing them would see a backwards E, indicating self-focus. They thought only about how they'd see the letter, not others. Those who wrote about times of low power wrote the E the opposite way, so that a person facing would see it correctly. The people remembering powerful situations were three times more likely to write the E backwards, suggesting that those who feel powerful might be less able to bend to other people's perspectives.

While Farley says those results are interesting, he cautions against putting too much stock in the letter test. One day a person might feel self-focused and write the letter incorrectly, while the next day a more outward-thinking attitude could lead to writing the letter correctly.

"There is no 'sure-fire' way to tell if someone is other-focused or self-focused, but the Galinsky … procedures might provide a little help," Farley says.
