7 Insider Tricks That Will Help You Win Friends And Influence People.
#1. Whenever someone is angry and confrontational, stand next to them instead of in front of them.
You won’t appear as so much of a threat, and they'll eventually calm down.
#2. Rephrase what the other person says and repeat it back to them.
This shows that you’re listening and really interested in what he/she is saying. It makes them feel validated. Obviously, you don’t want to overdo this.
#3. Open with “I need your help.” People don’t like the guilt of not helping someone out.
When asking for a favor from someone, begin your request by saying “I need your help.” It greatly increases your chances of getting that favor done.
#4. If someone doesn’t like you, ask to borrow a pencil or something small.
It is a small enough favor that they won’t say no, and it gets them to feel more comfortable with you.
