These are some cool psychological hacks that will help you to improve the outcome of any social situation.
#1. If you want to know about something from someone, ask them a question and when they are done answering, keep silent and maintain eye contact. They will tell you some more stuff, almost everything.
#2. If you are trying to convince someone of something, make sure he is sitting and standing up. That makes you believe it earlier
#3. The key to confidence is walking into a room and assume that everyone already likes you.
#4. Refer the people you just met to their name. People love to be called by name and will instantly instill a sense of trust and friendship. Example: “Nice to meet you Alex. So, Alex how do you know John?” And continue to repeat name throughout the conversation.
#5. If someone is attracted to you, their eyes start blinking more than usual during a conversation with you.
#6. Spot the difference between a fake smile and a real one. You can tell if someone is really smiling or pretending to look at his eyes. Wrinkles form near the corner of the eye when the smile is real.
#7. Pay attention to people’s feet. To know if someone is interested in a conversation to look at their feet if they are pointing towards you, they are. If they are pointing sideways or any other direction, they aren’t. Feet don’t lie.
#8. When at a party or a meeting. When at a party or a meeting, crack a joke and observe the people who are laughing around you. People who feel close will look at each other. This is useful for identifying friendships and other relationships.
#9. The life hack to make people do what you want them to do. Offer someone a choice instead of a command. For example, instead of telling a toddler to drink milk, ask what cup of milk to drink. This gives the person a sense of control, which gives them a better chance of getting a better result.
#10 How to win an argument?. If the person arguing loses his temper and starts shouting, the natural human tendency is to shout back. DON’T! Stay calm and reply in silence. This will piss them off even more. Try it! It works.
#11. Mirror people’s body language to build up trust. If you subtly mimic the body language of the person you’re talking to, you can effectively build up trust with them. By reflecting their way of talking and moving, they will love you more, because, for them, they seem quite compatible.
#12 Inception To plant a seed of an idea in someone’s mind, ask them to not think of a particular thing at all. Let’s say I ask you to NOT think about ELEPHANTS. What are you thinking of? 😉
