6 Ways To Make People Like You By Dale Carnegie

Have you been struggling to make people like you? If you failed, you probably did something wrong. If you succeed at it, you are probably doing one or all of these things am about to discuss below.

Do you know you can make people like doing these six simple things?

In his book, "How to win friends and make influence," Dale Carnegie shared some useful tips on how to make people like you.

Having read it, am going to share with you too.

6 ways to make people like you

  • Become genuinely interested in other people: It is simple! If you want people to be interested in you, you too must be interested in them. If you want to catch the attention of anyone, you can be successful when you are interested in whatever the person is doing. 

  • Smile: Other than the fact that smile makes you look younger, no one likes people that spend most of their days frowning. How do you feel when someone approaches you with a frown? You will be defensive and may end up not welcoming the person. 
If you are wondering how I managed to escape some punishment, it was via smiling at the angry tutor/lecturer.

  • Remember that a person's name is to that person the most sweetest and most important sound in any language: No one loves their name being pronounced wrongly, just like you too don't like it! Imagine if someone approaches you and say, good day Mr Kenny, how are you today? 
Believe me, you will want to listen to what he/she wants to sell to you.

We are all selfish being. So also is the person you are trying to deal. That is why in a group photograph, the first person you look out for is you!

  • Be a good listener, encourage others to talk about themselves: This simply means, if you want to be understood, first pay the price of understanding the other party. The other will feel more relaxed, open up to you, if you would pay the price of listening to what he/she has to say. 
It is psychological, people sometimes are not looking for person to solve their problems. They just want someone to listen to them.

  • Talk in terms of the other person's interests: If am meeting you (a Medical personnel) for the first time, do you know what I will talk about with you? It is medical issues. Because that is one of the things that interests you.
But imagine coming to me (blogger and a Nurse) things on literature. No matter how good I am, I can't go with the flow. 

Dale Carnegie counted that, Roosevelt sometimes have a private study time on the subject matter that the person he is about to meet has interest in.
  • Make the other person feel important and do it sincerely: We are emotional being. We love compliments. We love to feel important. 
If you want the other party to like you, make him/her feel important and do it like you mean it.
Feeling of importance makes us do what we do.

These are 6 ways to make people like you as discussed by Dale Carnegie in his book, "How to make friends and influence people." 

I hope this helps! Have you read the book?
