Handling job interview stress. The next time you're feeling anxious before a big interview, take heart.

The study, conducted by a U.K.-based car park firm, covertly observed 2,500 drivers in 700 parking lots and rated these seven key characteristics of parking styles: appropriate space-finding speed; pre-parking pose; reverse into space; forward into space; speed of maneuver; reposition shuffle; central finish.

Women scored higher on six of the seven -- but when researchers questioned women drivers, only one-fifth (18 percent) thought they were better parkers than men and less than a third (28 percent) believed they were better parkers than their partners. This got us thinking: What else are women great at but probably don't even know it? Here are four more things you can add to your list of skills:
