5 psychological tricks to make people like you

Our brains take less than 1 second to decide whether or not we should trust someone, but if the brain’s decisions were correct, there would be no divorce, ruined friendships or cheating.

That is why people are suspicious and do not trust anyone they meet immediately.
But if you want to score points with someone, there are some proven methods to do it.

1. Show that you like it

I believe you heard about the phenomenon of “reciprocity of consent”?

It refers to the tendency for people to like someone who likes them. This happens because people feel warmth and support from their partner, and it’s also rewarding to know that you’re likeable. So if one day you want to get someone’s attention, show them a positive attitude and you will get the same amount of love.

2. Spill your coffee.

This advice may seem weird. Why do we have to spoil the first impression by making a clumsy mistake? But a lot of studies confirm that pointing out our vulnerability increases our attractiveness and trustworthiness.

3. Apologize excessively.

Another effective but often forgotten method to build trust is to say, “I am sorry!” Researchers note that this works for situations where you are obviously not at fault. For example, by saying, “I’m sorry about the rain,” you express empathy and regret that something sad has happened to people. You show that you understand their experience, and this considerably increases their belief in you.

4. Casually touch your partner.

It seems that casual touch can also become a powerful catalyst of trust-building. A lot of curious and sometimes provocative studies demonstrate its effectiveness.

When employing this method keep in mind social and cultural norms. Touch is less likely to have any beneficial effects if you violate personal boundaries.

5. Make it all about them.

We assume that ego suspension is the most difficult way to make someone trust you. When applying this approach, you are supposed to focus on the needs, wants, and perception of the reality of another person rather than on your own beliefs.
