Welcome back, it's great to see you're taking the time to visit my blog, I really appreciate it! Just wanted to tell you some of what you have in store if you decide to follow me. :)
What I am doing on this blog is teaching away the things I've picked up on during the growth of my interest for psychology. For the time being, I will keep posting advice on getting people to like you. Many of you have probably heard these tips before, some might not need them, but i hope reading about them here in depth will make you realise the importance they actually have, and the impact they can have on your life. I will eventually get to the more "fun stuff" knowledge of psychology has to offer, but you can not practice them without people being interested in what you have to say, or wanting to have a conversation with you! So read on.
"Remember that a person's name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language".
A very smart man taught me that phrase, his name is Dale Carnegie. Since learning that tip, I can honestly say I've never forgot a persons name again.
How do you feel when someone you've met asks you "What was your name again"? Or just mispronounce it? How often have you shaken hands with somebody and been so focused on telling them your own name, that you didn't even pay attention to theirs?
People like hearing their own names, and they like to hear them pronounced the right way. If someone pronounced yours wrong, you'd probably get a little annoyed, maybe even feeling like that persons doesn't really care about getting to know you. So keep this in mind the next time you meet someone new.
If they have a name that's hard to pronounce, ask them again how they pronounce their name, (this will show interest) and practice saying it right when you get back home.
Also remember that people like hearing it, so the next time you meet them; say something like "Hey, John, how are you?".
Well. that's it. Hope you enjoyed my post. Have a nice day! :)
