These Incredible Yet Simple Mind tricks Are Amazing Little Bits Of Advice That Will Help You Come Out On Top Without Actually Doing Any Extra Work. Sounds Pretty Awesome? It Is. Fooling Your Own Brain May Be Easier Than You Think. Here are the 20 mind tricks to help you out.
1. When you first meet people
Try to notice the colour of their eye while also smiling at them. It might be because you look for a second or two longer, but all I can tell you is that people really respond to it.These might help you know whether that person even wants to interact with you.
2. Pay attention to people’s feet.
If you approach two people in the middle of a conversation, and they only turn their torsos and not their feet, they are not interested talking with you. On the other hand, if you are in a conversation with someone who you think is paying attention to you and their torso is turned towards you but their feet are facing in another direction, they want the conversation to end.
3. Foot-in-the-door phenomenon.
People are more likely to agree to do a task for you if you ask them to do something simpler first. This is because they feel this isn’t their task and they wont have much of a burden while doing it for you.If you ask them to do a harder task they are likely to say no. so when you ask for what they want, a much more reasonable task, and they’re more likely to agree that way.
4. If you ask someone a question
They only partially answer and just wait. If you stay silent and keep eye contact they will usually continue talking because they want to judge you for your interest in them and the answer is satisfied.
5. Chew gum
When you’re approaching a situation that would make you nervous like public speaking or bungee jumping. I can’t remember where I heard it but apparently if we are ‘eating’ something in our brains trip and it reasons ‘I would not be eating if I were danger. So I’m not in danger’. Has helped calm me a few times. This helps the brain to shift the concentration from nervousness to eating.
6. Avoid the side walk shuffle
By looking intently over the person’s shoulder, or between people’s heads in a group. Your gaze shows them where you’re going. They’ll drift toward the opposing side / create a gap to avoid you. It will be a eye gesture which will show that you are not interested and you wanted to go.
7. When you’re studying/learning something new
Teach a friend how/about it. Let them ask questions. If you’re able to teach something well, you understand it.Teaching something helps you to clear your doubt and will give better understanding of the topic.
8. People will remember
People will forget what you said to them but will never forget what you made them to feel.
9. For interviews
Altering your psychological state beforehand. Tell yourself “I’ve known these people all my life. We’re old friends catching up. I can’t wait to see them”. Visualize the experience, shaking hands, making eye contact, having conversation. What things can you not to wait to tell them? Hold an open pose…stand with your legs apart, hands on your hips, and shoulders back while doing this and SMILE. This may sound cliché but you are in charge of your own psychological state and the power of suggestion is strong. When you are in your own psychological state your mind will see things as if their own and will not make you feel nervous.
10. If you get yourself to be really happy
Excited to see other people, they will react the same to you. It doesn’t always happen the first time, but it will definitely happen next time.A happy environment makes your mind happy.
11. Handling the anger
When people are angry at me and if I stay calm it’ll get them even angrier, because your silence fumes them and be ashamed about it after.
12. If you have a warm hand
When you shake somebody’s hand, you immediately become a more desirable person to get along with.
13. People have a certain image of themselves
People will fight tooth and nail to cling to it. Use this information wisely. You can make people dislike you by attacking their self-image.
14. False attribution of arousal. When you take somebody out on a first date, take them somewhere exciting that will get their heart beating. e.g. roller coaster or horror film. This gets their adrenaline up. It makes them think they enjoy spending time with you rather than the activity.
15. The key to confidence
Is walking into a room, and assuming everyone already likes you and turn towards them and give them a smile.
16. The physical effects of stress
Increased breathing rate, heart rate etc mirror identically the physical effects of courage. So when you’re feeling stress from any situation immediately re-frame it: your body is getting ready to do courage, it’s Not feeling stress. Sometime pressure is the key to achieve success.
17. Refer to people you’ve just met by their name.
People loving being referred to by their name, and it will establish a sense of trust and friendship right away.
18. If you make the biggest smile
Your smile will make your mind happy and keeps your body healthy and at the same time the person feels you are confidence.
19. The moment your alarm wakes you up
Immediately react by sitting up, pump your fists and shout “YEAH!” and i am ready to live my day.
20. People are extraordinarily aware of their sense of touch.
If someone (a member of the opposite sex?) ‘Accidentally’ rests their knee on yours, let’s say, they know it’s there.
