Even if we are unique in our own way, we share the same human nature. This allows us to bond with other people and, most importantly, discover tricks for their thinking. By taking advantage of what we already have inside, we can influence other people’s decisions and opinions about us and situations.
In Craft Side, we have put together these useful psychological tricks that have a strong effect on almost everyone.
Psychology Tricks To Know a Person
#1. Create an illusion of choice.
If you need someone to do something for you, request a more difficult task before submitting your original request. After rejecting the biggest things, people tend to accept an easy request. This also works when you try to convince someone. Give them two options at the same time: what you want and another more difficult task to accomplish. What you will get from this is to make your actual request simpler side by side.
#2. Turn the disagreement into an advantage.
When people tell you things that you don’t agree with, don’t strongly oppose them. First, acknowledge what they say with words like “I understand what you mean” and continue with your own opinion asking “but have you thought about that part?” This approach will help you express your opinion without being interrupted or by someone opposing you.
#3. Mom knows better.
You can draw attention to your words by telling people that your mother or father taught you this. People follow a traditional discipline figure and respect the mother or father who empathically thinks of their own parents. Most people sincerely believe in their parents’ words, and when you mention that the words also come from the parents, it creates the same effect as the family itself.
#4. Make a love loan.
You can realize that someone doesn’t like you as much as you want. Ask them for something small to borrow, maybe a book of interest. This will first create a reluctant connection between the two of you and then result in a change of mind after returning the item.
#5. Silence can be attractive.
During an awkward silence with a person, you would like to get along with, ask him something about her. Even the calmest person likes to talk about themselves. They will ask for something in return and you will turn the silence into a fluid conversation.
#6. Trust attracts people.
After you finish talking during the negotiations, just look into people’s eyes and wait in silence. Your determined appearance will positively affect the perceptions of others of what you just said. If you lose eye contact after these intense moments, you will notice a loss of interest after a short time.
#7. Make them feel great.
Using the right keywords can make a big difference when you need help. People tend to help you with your requests if you submit them as a favor. The ego impulse will be activated and they will feel that they are granting you a wish. Try using simple phrases like “Please do me a favor” or “I really need your help.”
#8. Create a reaction to observing.
When you’re new to a group, make a joke or tell a funny story to see people’s reactions. The closest people look at each other while laughing, and this will help you understand the bonds and determine the connections between friends.
#9. Repeat this: Repeat.
Repetition is one of the best ways to create a concrete idea in people’s minds. If you want to impose your opinion on another person, simply repeat it in different contexts or simply say the same in a conversation with different expressions. After hearing the same thing over and over again, people will perceive the idea as their own, since their brain will label it as familiar or familiar.
#10. Create trust to build trust.
When you try to build trust in a social environment, admit your little mistakes to others. People will see your vulnerable side and accept you as an honest person. This will give you an advantage even during a dispute.
#11. Own nature
And don’t forget to have fun with your own nature! Here is one more trick for lovers of stone, paper or scissors. During the game, if you ask a question before saying a scissors paper without waiting for the answers, most people will tend to say “scissors” for their game. Try it, you will be surprised and you will be a champion!
