6 Ways to Make Someone Like You

6 Ways to Make Someone Like You – Vol. 205, June 20, 2013

How would you like your life to become both happier and more productive? With these six principles in Dale Carnegie’s Win Friends And Influence People you will find very simple and useful ways to get people to like you.

Principle 1: Become genuinely interested in other people. Think about a time when you were going through a difficult time. Didn’t it feel great when someone demonstrated that they truly cared about you? If you have someone in your life that is going through a difficult time, be there and be supportive. You will find that through your interest in others, others will be interested in you.

Principle 2: Smile. Have you ever noticed that when you smile at someone you will most often get a smile back in return. Why? Because a smile tells the person that you are glad to see them. When this happens it brings happiness to both of you. No one wants to be around sour, snarly people. So do your best to be appreciative of those who are in you life by smiling at them. This will bring your relationships to a whole other level. To the clerks in the stores who have to deal with all sorts of unhappy people, your smile can bring the sunshine in.

Principle 3: Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language. Think about how you feel when someone calls you by something other than you name?  Does it bother you at all? If so, remember that. Ask how the person would like to be addressed and then call them by that name. This shows that you both respect and care for them allowing for a better relationship to form.

Principle 4: Be a good listener. I am sure that you have been involved in conversations where you could notice the person with whom you are speaking is barely paying you any mind. Maybe they asked a question and then they started to walk away while you were in mid-sentence. Or maybe you asked a question and the answer you received had nothing to do with the question. How did these situations make you feel?  Marginalized most likely. The best way to keep this from happening to you is to ask questions of the person that are truly interesting to you. This will make you a great conversationalist and with this skill you can accomplish much.

Principle 5: Talk in terms of the other person’s interests. This will gain you the other persons attention. By being aligned with that person’s interests you can develop deeper connections bringing you both mutual benefits.

Principle 6: Make the other person feel important – and do it sincerely, from the heart. this being one of the strongest components of human nature. The end result is to be instantly liked by this person. If there is someone in your life that plays an important role for you, by all means let them know it often and sincerely. No one likes to be taken for granted and no one can read your mind.
