14 Unbelievable Psychological Tricks That Will Make You a Master Manipulator
Have you ever wondered how some people seem to have an uncanny ability to get what they want, no matter the situation? Well, the answer might lie in their understanding of human psychology. There are a number of psychological tricks that can be used to influence and manipulate people's thoughts, feelings, and behavior.
Here are a few unbelievable psychological tricks that you can use to manipulate people:
Instead of verbally attacking someone for doing something, say how you feel, they can get angry and defensive if they feel attacked, but they can’t get mad at you for how you feel.
Listen to the music you’d want to hear if you were in the mood you want to be in, it helps shift your mentality into that state of mind.
When you try to convince someone over something, make sure they are sitting and you are standing. This makes them believe you sooner.
Wear noise-canceling headphones if you don’t want people to talk to you (even if you’re not listening to music).
Smile at everyone you encounter — it’ll make your daily interactions much more pleasant.
Instead of telling kids NOT to do something, tell them to do something else — it’ll distract them from what you don’t want them to be doing and will help them focus on what they should do instead.
If you want to find out who someone likes the most in a group, pay attention to who they look at after someone says something funny, they tend to look to their favorite person as they laugh.
Instead of immediately arguing with a viewpoint you don’t agree with, first validate it and then state your own viewpoint — the interaction will oftentimes end positively
If someone asks you a particularly hard question, say, “What a good question!”, it’ll make the person feel so pleased with themselves that they’ll be less critical of the answer (and may not even fully pay attention to it at all).
Find out who has a crush on you: when laughter breaks out in a group, individuals look toward the group members they feel closest to.
If you know a person is going to criticize you, sit beside them.
Tearing the paper off of drink bottles is a sign of sexual frustration.
Having positive and happy people around you can keep you happier.
If someone is attracted to you, their eyes start blinking more than usual during a conversation with you.
