8 Surefire Ways to Get People to Instantly Like You

8 Surefire Ways to Get People to Instantly Like You

We all have that one friend who makes people instantly like them after just a few exchanges of words. That one friend who gets along well with everyone in the room.

How do they do that? Is it a skill you learn or an inborn ability? Do they become liked just by being themselves?

Sure, staying true to yourself and just being yourself is great. But let’s face it; you can’t please everyone.

Even the queen who is dearly loved by almost everybody has her fair share of haters too.

But what you can do is give them what they want. What does this mean? How do they get people to like them instantly? Let’s read on to find out.

1. Know their likes and dislikes. Find out what their likes and dislikes are and be interested in knowing more about it (or at least try to sound interested). This is a no brainer but deserves to be mentioned because it works every single time; since people like talking about themselves.

2. Look for common interests. Find out what you have in common and you’ll have tons to talk about without trying to sound like you’re interested because you actually are.

3. Shower them with compliments. Simple but it works. Compliment their fashion, how their dress matches their sandals or accessories, etc. It can be whatever. They will like what they’re hearing, which is what you’re saying, making them like you.

4. Show admiration at what they do. Find out what that person is good at and let them know how amazing you think they really are for being good at what they do. It can be their job, piano skills, taste in music or their sense of responsibility. Bring that topic up in your conversations. They’ll either thank you or deny it. Either way, they’ll be screaming of joy inside and they’ll remember that you bothered to mention it to them.

5. Don’t talk too much about yourself. They’re probably interested in you too, but humans are selfish beings and want to talk about themselves most of the time than have to listen to you speak. Keep asking questions about themselves. Like I’ve mentioned in number 1, people like talking about themselves.

6. When you ask questions, actually listen to their answers. This is different from just trying to sound interested. In this case, you might not actually be interested, but pay attention to what they are saying so that you will have a response ready. They will appreciate you for lending them your ears because again, people love to be heard.

7. Smile and laugh. Let me ask you this question. Would you rather be with a happy person or with one that is frowning? With the happy person, right? Well, everyone else does too. Laughter is contagious, but smile is actually contagious too! So smile, but don’t look creepy. If you’re the serious type of person and only smile or laugh when you actually want to and have difficulty faking laughter, then you might want to work on your smile and laughter in front of the mirror. I know it sounds weird smiling or laughing at yourself in front of the mirror, but at least no one is watching. You’d rather be humiliated just by yourself than in front of other people, right? Practice until it doesn’t look like a creepy smile or a nervous laughter.

8. Exert effort on your appearance or at least dress appropriately. If you’re not that confident with the way you speak or are just really nervous that you’re afraid that no words will come out of your mouth, then at least exert effort on your appearance. 60% of the time, people judge you by the way you look. You don’t have to put on lots of make up. Just be presentable. Dress appropriately and work on that smile. Take a shower. Seriously. Proper hygiene makes you feel good and everyone around you too.

To summarize, know their likes and dislikes, look for common interests, shower them with compliments, show admiration at what they do, don’t talk too much about yourself, ask them questions and actually listen to their answers, smile and laugh, and exert effort on your appearance because first impression lasts.

2. What Light by Jay Asher

“Sierra’s family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon. It’s a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other. Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other. By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. Sierra sees beyond Caleb’s past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. But as disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra can’t help but wonder if love really is enough to overcome every obstacle…”

As he finds warmth in the laughter and bustle of the village children, a thought occurs: What can he give to show love for those in need? Unexpected inspiration leads to a sweet and meaningful answer.

5. Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) thought motherhood would be a breeze and that having a daughter was a dream come true a shopping friend for life! But it s trickier than she thought two-year-old Minnie has a quite different approach to shopping.

She can create havoc everywhere from Harrods to Harvey Nicks to her own christening. She hires taxis at random, her favourite word is Mine , and she s even started bidding for designer bags on ebay.

On top of everything else, there s a big financial crisis. People are having to Cut Back including all of Becky s personal shopping clients and she and Luke are still living with Becky s Mum and Dad. To cheer everyone up, Becky decides to throw a surprise birthday party on a budget but then things become really complicated.

Who will end up on the naughty step, who will get a gold star and will Becky s secret wishes come true?

6. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney

Greg Heffley is in big trouble. School property has been damaged, and Greg is the prime suspect. But the crazy thing is, he’s innocent. Or at least sort of.The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise blizzard hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors. Greg knows that when the snow melts he’s going to have to face the music, but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays?

Happy Holidays and cheers to more books! 😄🎄🎁📚❤
