29+ Simple Psychological Tricks To Attract All People Around You That Work All of the Time

    • Try to use “I” statements rather than “you” statements. People generally feel on the offensive when you put something on them, especially when there’s an issue. For example, “You did this wrong, can you try it again a different way?” Putting the blame on them makes them feel like you’re accusing them. Consider saying, “I’m not sure if this is right, can we try this again a different way?” The latter doesn’t contain the assumed accusation and shows that you’re in it together, not just criticizing them and then leaving. I try to implement it even when it’s not a problem statement. Instead of saying, “Let me know if you need help with anything else,” I usually say, “Let me know if there’s anything else I can do to help.” © shiguywhy / Reddit
    • I always smile when I see and approach or get approached by anyone so they immediately think I’m happy to see them. It makes me a lot of friends and helps conversations start better too! © FriedPickIes / Reddit
    • If you encounter a grumpy, rude customer at work, clarify that you appreciate their patience and understanding. They think to themselves, “You’re right. I am super patient and understanding!” even though that might not have been the case. © upperslide8 / Reddit
    • If someone is talking about a subject that I am already well informed about, to come off as more humble and let the other person have the enjoyment of expressing their knowledge, I will express what I know in the form of a question. © Boring_Lead62 / Reddit
    • If you’re talking to somebody, mimic their facial reactions in the conversation. Smile when they do, crease your brow when they do, etc. You have to work to make it seem natural and not like you’re purposefully imitating them, but if you pull it off, they’ll walk away thinking better of you. © Ser_Parzival / Reddit
    • When asking a stranger for help, just cut right to the chase with your question/request, then exchange some pleasantries after. What people tend to usually say is: “Hi, how are you doing, I’m so-and-so. Hey, can I ask something…” It makes the introduction seem less genuine, like it was only to ease your way into something you want/need. © spartanburt / Reddit
    • Whenever someone is showing you around or demonstrating something to you, open your mouth ever so slightly. Doesn’t have to be much, barely a centimeter is enough. It makes you look intrigued and fascinated by whatever it is you’re being shown. © ConstableBlimeyChips / Reddit
    • There was a girl at work I had a crush on, so every time we talked I would give her some of her favorite candies. I did it for weeks until she would seek me out and make excuses to come to see me before leaving for the day. © thatdudefromPR / Reddit
    • Listening to someone without giving advice or pushing for more information typically nets me more information than being pushy about it. © JanelLiie / Reddit
    • Yawning is contagious. I use it to catch people who had been looking over at me. © Sea_Masterpiece8891 / Reddit
    • If a customer is angry, just let them talk until they finish. Don’t interrupt, but occasionally say things like “okay,” and “I understand” so they know you’re listening. Make mental notes, and once they’re finished, summarize what they said. Most angry customers just want an affirmation that you actually paid attention to the reasons they were upset, and once they get that off their chest, they’re way more willing to work with you to resolve whatever issue they’re having. If we have a follow-up call, I’ll usually ask again about the things they were upset about on the previous call, and they’re usually pleasantly surprised to know I actually remembered. © zerbey / Reddit
    • If you ever are in a competition (like in sports or whatever else) that requires a lot of skill and your opponent is beating the h*** out of you, say, “Man! You’re playing great today! C’mon, tell me — how are you doing that?” Asking them something like, “How are you doing that?” forces them to actively think about what they’re doing and, in the process, it screws up their great performance. © DreadPirateGriswold / Reddit
