Penetration Testing - Human Factor

As a thorough sceptic Id like to conclude in most cases of a TRUE hacking incident social engineering has been a factor of success for the malicious user attacking a system. For quite a while now I have been compiling methodology on the assessment of the weak human security link which can be exploited through social engineering. Has anyone got any thoughts they would like to share or guidelines to the audit of the human factor when security is concerned?

Any information is much apreciated.

Many Thanks,
Mario A. Spinthiras
