Do you ever asked yourself this: How many person in your surroundings who actually like you? How many of them would gladly give you help when you asked for it? Whatever the answers are, there is one thing for certain. You will never have enough friends, more is better.
I didn't mean to change this blog into psychics or relationship consultant blog just because I recently posted this kind of tips, such as Ways to Please Girl. It's merely because these kind of things are part of have fun and enjoy life, as like this blog theme.
So, this is 15 ways on how to make yourself a likable person. I hope this is will be useful.
1. Really listen to others and be attentive.
When you’re involved in a conversation, it’s important to focus more on the other person and less on yourself. Don't be self centered! Everybody loves a good listener.
2. Never hesitate to gives compliment.
Everybody likes to hear that their efforts are appreciated.
3. Make yourself available and approachable.
If people cannot get a hold of you, or have trouble approaching you, they will forget about you. Your general availability and accessibility to others is extremely important to them.
4. Speak clearly so people can understand you.
Most people have a very low tolerance for dealing with people they can’t understand.
5. Be yourself.
You should ask yourself this: If you don’t like who you really are, why the heck should anyone like you?
6. Address people by their name.
Stop calling people with "you", "kid", "old man", "beautiful", especially when you're not that close with them. Learn to remember names, people will fell that you respect them.
7. Ask and give help.
Everyone appreciates the gift of free assistance and those who supply it. Highly likable people always spare time for others, regardless of how busy their own schedules are.
8. Never get caught lying.
Everybody stretches the truth at times, but everyone hates a liar. Ironic, isn’t it? It's okay to lie once in a while, just make sure that no one notices it.
9. Say “please” and “thank you”.
These 2 simple phrases can mean the difference between sounding rude and sounding genuinely grateful.
Always remember that smile gives warm to yourself and others. Read my previous post, 10 Reasons to Smile to know why smiling is important.
11. Keep unqualified opinions to yourself.
If you don’t have all the facts, or you’re uneducated on the topic of discussion, it’s in your best interest to spend your time listening. Unqualified opinions just make a person sound foolishly arrogant.
12. Respect elders, respect minors, respect everyone.
There are no boundaries or classes that define a group of people that deserve to be respected. Treat everyone with the same level of respect you would give to your grandfather and the same level of patience you would have with your baby brother.
13. Never make a promise that you can't keep.
Some people habitually make promises they are just barely able to fulfill. If you want people to like you, forget about making promises and simply over-deliver on everything you do.
14. Positive first impression.
Firm handshake, warm eye contacts, clear and respectful words, dress clean. These are the key elements for people's first impression towards liking you.
15. Keep your hands away from your face.
Putting your hands on your face during a conversation tells the other person that you’re either bored, negatively judging them, or trying to hide something.
Fun or Not:
