And psychology that can help professionals get what they want from others
But there are also much simpler yet just as effective methods that anyone can use on a daily basis
Here are 19 of them. Be sure to subscribe and ring that notification bell to join us on the bright side of life
Never start your request with the words
Could you? It can cause the other person to subconsciously?
Assume that. This is a theoretical question for example avoid questions
Like "Could you call the neighbors?" because the answer yes can mean
Yes, I theoretically could but I didn't agree to it. Sure, good is polite but it's better to
rephrase your request to " Call the damn neighbors!" if you want to be sure that it'll be fulfilled -
If you ever want to make someone feel uncomfortable
Look at their chest. Most people say it makes them feel like they're under scrutiny which of course
Doesn't exactly make a person relaxed
Not sure why you'd want to do this to others, but who knows the situation may arise
3 if
Someone you're talking to is trying to avoid answering a question. Just make a pause in the conversation and raise your left eyebrow
They'll feel uncomfortable and thus will keep talking
Chances are they'll give you more details about the issue you're interested in they may even start telling you the truth if they were lying
Since they'll believe that your silence and your look are signs that you already know the real facts
For let's say you've started a new job or school if you want someone in the office or class to ask you on a date
To explain something to you. It doesn't matter if you know the answer or not
This will improve the other person's overall attitude towards you and earn you some extra bannana points
when asking a question that you want an affirmative answer to try to nod
Subtly, as you make your request this trick is often used by restaurant employees to make by more food, and it's pretty effective
6 if a person is really
Concentrated on a task. Let's say they're in middle of a serious phone conversation. You can extend your hand to them and get anything
They're holding at the moment. They might not even remember later on the trick works the other way around too
You can give them something as you're talking to them and they won't even notice
Pretty helpful when you're cleaning up or moving to a new house
7 if you want somebody to do something for you
Casually say how they probably wouldn't even be able to do it
Most people will try really hard to prove someone wrong when it comes to doubting their capabilities.
You can also make a small or unusual request before getting down to the main issue in this case
You'll establish a connection with a person so they probably won't have the heart to turn you down afterwards 8
Just like with questions. You need to get an affirmative answer to start nodding just a little bit during a conversation
Interestingly enough. This will make the person you're talking to more attentive to your words and they won't even realize why
9 here's a good one for negotiations
If you like a person's offer in general
But would like to get better conditions prepare to be a little bit
Disappointed this method can work like magic with a high price or a low salary
10 as soon as your alarm clock goes off sit up make two fists and yell
Yeah, as if you're a soccer player who's just scored a goal, it sounds bizarre, but it really does help you easily
Get out of bed feeling refreshed. Just try it for yourself and let us know down in the comments if it worked for you.
11 if you're always worried whether or not you lock the door or turns your iron off just say some
Absolutely, absurd phrase when you're doing these things the phrase could be different every single day.
For example,
you say "Green Rabbit" and turn the iron off or
"Oppressive crab" and lock the door the next time you start doubting whether or not you did something you'll remember saying this weird phrase
And it'll calm you down.
12. If a person tries to pull you into an argument or some kind of drama say something nice to them
You'll kill them with kindness trick really does stop them in their tracks.
Another technique is to keep your calm and remain silent. There's nothing more irritating than being ignored.
However, if you're trying to avoid an argument with your friend or partner try to put yourself in their shoes.
This can help you understand if there's some point in their objections that you are missing.
If you have that one lazy person on your team, that slows the whole work process down
Don't give them tasks by saying do this. It's better to say start with this
Psychologically, it'll seem like there's less work because according to this phrase they should start with something small after they've done the first
Task use the words. Very good now
Continue with this until they end up finishing what you wanted them to do in the first place.
14. If you have to speak in public, don't forget to take a bottle of water with you
First of all,
You'll need it
Since your nerves will make your mouth feel like the Sahara Desert.
Plus, you can take a pause to sip some water in order to remember a part of your speech that slipped your mind
The audience will never know and if you feel too anxious to speak in front of a large crowd
Admit this fact to the audience right away
It lightens the mood, calms your nerves, and it makes your listeners feel more sympathetic, since most of them can probably relate.
15. If someone is staring at you in the subway happens all too often right just look at their shoes
Don't give up keep gazing
It'll drive them crazy
16. If you seem really worried each time you see someone
You know in the end this person will also start feeling worried every time they see you
so do with that information what you will.
17. If someone has done something wrong
But you don't want to sound to accusing change the way you construct your sentences, for example
Instead of saying "you didn't close a window before you left". You can say "the window was left open all night."
They'll learn from their mistake and you won't seem like a meanie pointing the finger.
18. If you didn't get a good night's sleep tell yourself that you did
I know it sounds like nonsense, but it does work 100% if you say it with meaning.
Scientists from Colorado College published a study in the Journal of
Experimental Psychology in which they found that if you genuinely believe that you're well-rested
Even if you're not your brain does function better.
19. People are better at remembering what happened at the beginning and end of the day as
As for anything that went on in between it gets blurry,
this is a great tip when it comes to job interviews, agree to a time
that's either at the start of the work day or at the end of it this way the employer will remember you among all the
other candidates.
