Umm! Confused? Here are the answers to all your worries. Just go through them as they will help you gain the upper hand in social situations where you find yourself completely lost.
1. Know About Someone More.
If you want to know a person better and don’t know where to start, try this. Ask questions and maintain an eye contact even after when they have answered your questions. This will make them speak more and they will end up telling you more about themselves.
2. Convince Someone With This Simple Psychological Trick.
This is one of the most proven psychological hacks ever. If you really want to convince someone, make sure you both are positioned in a certain way. The person you are trying to convince should be in a standing position while you should be sitting. This will create a subconscious response to being in front of authority. The person will take your every word acutely.
3. Form Trust By Addressing People By Their First Name.
When you refer to people by their first name, it immediately forms a sense of trust between you two. It may not seem like a big deal in our everyday lives but it is actually important. It creates a bond that makes you more trustworthy than someone who never calls them by their first name.
4. Is He/She Attracted To You? This Psychological Hack Will Reveal The Truth.
If you suspect someone is attracted to you then initiate a conversation with them. Make sure you are noticing their eyelids closely. If the person is blinking more often than normal, it’s a sign that they are attracted to you. Don’t you just love this one? The best is, if you find them attractive too, you can stir things up.
5. A Real Smile Or A Fake Smile.
This one is one of our favorite psychological hacks. In today’s messed up lives, people tend to fake smile more than anything. You can actually differentiate between a fake smile and a real one by simply looking into their eyes. If they are really having a good time and that smile is real, creases will form at the corners of their eyes, however, if not then they are completely faking. Now you can tell, who is actually having a good time with you and who is not.
6. Feet Tell More Than You Can Imagine.
If you are having a conversation with someone and you are not sure if you have their attention or not, drop everything and look at their feet. If the person’s feet are pointing towards you then, he/she was completely indulged in your conversation, but if not, then they hardly listened to any word you just spoke.
7. Make People Think About Something.
Among all the Psychological hacks we have listed, you will love this one as it’s something that you have all experienced in your life at least once. If you want someone to think about something, simply ask them to not to think about it. For example – We are asking you to not think about your Ex…….. What are you thinking about? Got it?
Aren’t these Psychological hacks totally worth trying at least once? Get yourself out there and own every social situation like a boss.
