Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
I was reading a Psychology Today article. 🤮
Wait, how did that emoji get there?🧐
Anyway, it gives seven easy ways to make you more likeable. If you want, you can click the link and read what I read. If not, that is ok too.
From a lifetime introvert who is forced into the world of polite society, here are my thoughts on the seven steps.
1. Be Seen
One of my favorite pastimes is to sit very still in the woods and watch wildlife.
One tip I will impart is don’t look directly or move your eyes. It will draw attention.
2. Remember Names
Working in a prison, I remember the names of those that give me grief and remember the faces of the well-behaved ones. Staff change so much it is difficult to keep up with the names.
3. Ask Questions
Why? Look it up on Google, then ask.
Whenever I smile, people think I am up to something. I have way slowed down on the smiles.
5. Discover Similarities
I told a woman we both had a five o’clock shadow and it did not end well. I avoid these interactions now.
6. Make Them Feel Good
People pleasing? Please.
7. Express Your Liking For Them
I do that. If I like them.
Bonus Tip – Be Real
Oh, we are going to throw a monkey wrench in the whole thing.
Well, that is my take on the article. Where do you rate with these 7 steps?
