Do you face difficulty in hitting it off with people? Here are a few brilliant psychological tricks that will make life easier for you,
If you are doing something which makes you nervous, chew gum or eat food. It tricks your brain into thinking that you can’t be in danger because you are in danger.
If somebody is angry at you and you stay calm, they’ll probably get angrier, but they’ll be ashamed at themselves later.
If you ask someone a question and they only give you a partial answer, maintain eye-contact and stay silent. The person answering will usually assume that the original answer wasn’t good enough, and they’ll keep talking.
Emotional expressions are one way to cause emotions. If you want to feel happy, smile as wide as you can.
Before interviews, imagine you’re old friends with your interviewers. You’re in charge of the way you perceive your situation, and your comfort will be infectious.
People are more likely to agree to a smaller favor if they deny a larger one or two first. So, it will work if you ask for the bigger ones first and then the real one.
Many physical effects of stress are the same as those of exhilaration (e.g. heavy breathing, speeding heart, etc.) If you reframe your threatening situation as a challenging one, your stress will become exhilaration.
If you work in customer service, put a mirror behind you. Customers will be nicer because nobody wants to see themselves being a jerk.
