29+ Simple Psychological Tricks To Attract All People Around You That Work All of the Time

  • You really don’t have to add much to be part of a conversation. Just occasionally repeating part of the other person’s sentences as a question can be more than enough to continue their momentum. I learned it in a negotiation masterclass. © Professional_Tune589 / Reddit
  • Paris Hilton taught me that if someone asks you to do something and you don’t want to do it, do a bad job the first time and you won’t get asked to do it again. I’ve used that trick the past 10 years and it works every time. © thebroadisbored / Reddit
  • I ask someone to do me some small, trivial favor before asking them for a major favor. © Sunsh1neMelting / Reddit
  • Ask people for things they want to do/don’t mind doing, as if they’re favors to you, as if you’ll owe them after this. People like feeling useful. People like feeling like they’ve helped people — not necessarily because they’re nice, but because the “ability to help” implies some sort of power. © pm_me_taco_smell / Reddit
  • So this is more for parents or people in some position of authority. The best way to get someone to do what you think they should is to give them options. So they have a problem. List a bunch of solutions and the one you think is best. End it with: “I personally like this one and would do it, but it’s your choice.” 99% of the time, they’ll go with the one you wanted but are convinced they made the decision themselves. © demonardvark / Reddit
  • When you’re talking to someone but don’t want to keep talking, randomly look at the middle of their forehead, as if they have something there. That will unconsciously make him feel uncomfortable and it may end the conversation, or you can do it yourself and it will not seem rude. I use it all the time with people who I’m not necessarily excited about talking to. © Traditional_Call1062 / Reddit
  • I’ve noticed that people will let me do kind things for them if they think I’m doing it for selfish reasons. “No, let me cook for you! I need to practice making this dish!” © PrimusAldente87 / Reddit
  • When you’re annoyed with someone, just agree. Doesn’t matter what they’re saying, just agree. They run out of steam quickly when you don’t fuel the fire. © Bossmantho / Reddit
  • Sometimes staying silent in a negotiation works in your favor. Silence often feels uncomfortable so the other party will offer up something by filling the quiet space with words. I used it once to negotiate something with my boss. I stated my case. He hmmed and ummed for a bit to himself. I remained silent, and he relented. Had I filled that silence with more words, it could’ve given him time to think of a way to say no. © baabaaredsheep / Reddit

Bonus: a not-so-useful but interesting trick

  • Looking people in the eye and handing them something. I almost got fired because I was talking to my boss and I just handed him a garbage bag I was holding and walked away. It took him a solid minute to realize what happened and I was already gone. The only reason I didn’t get fired is that he had no idea who handed it to him. He said if he found out they were done. This was a month ago and I just got a raise and the title, Employee of the Month. © Division__ / Reddit
