Sneaky Psychological Tricks That Will Always Give You the Upper Hand

Whether you're shy and uncomfortable in social situations or the most seasoned extrovert, everyone can use a few tips to increase their social likability. These tips use basic psychology and will give you the edge in any social situation from mingling at a cocktail party to a job interview to office politics to dating.

1. Be confident.

This may be easier said than done, but assuming confident body language goes a long way towards great first (or second, third, one hundredth) impressions. People like confident people. We find them more reliable, trustworthy, and attractive.

2. When you first meet someone, make note of their eye color.

These are some of the tricks, from which you can detect some traits about a person.

  • If you are talking to someone and the person pursed his lips then know that whatever you are speaking is not liked by him/her, they may not do it consciously but in their subconscious mind they already is disagreeing on your words. so next time if someone does it, than ask them, "am I going somewhere wrong?", "are you comfortable with what I am saying"
  • Now take a moment and bite your lip. Really, take a second and actually do it. Now, rub your forehead. Finally, stroke the back of your neck. These are things we do all the time. Spend some time around other people and you'll see them engaging in these behaviors on a regular basis. Do you wonder why do they do it? these are the signs of nervousness, so next time if you see someone doing this, ask them, what's wrong? there are many signs of nervousness in human behaviour but these are the basic one.
  • Usually, if a female is touching her neck dimple or covers it with her hand, than basically she is either uncomfortable, distressed, worried, nervous, threatened, insecure, or fearful. This is a common behavior which is detected by cops or FBI's, when they are questioning you. And they really notice each and every gesture you make, either you scratch your head or nose, they can immediately detect that you are lying by the way you act.
  • When the person's toes point upward while standing, it usually means the person is in a good mood or is thinking positive.
  • People lean toward each other when there is high comfort and agreement. This mirroring starts when we are babies. We lean away from things and people we don't like, even from colleagues when they say things with which we don't agree.
  • If you own a dog, try this experiment. Stand in front of your pet with your outstretched arms and hands in front of you, but not touching him. Then withdraw your arms behind your back and watch what happens. I think you'll discover the dog will react negatively.
  • I think its a human tendency that, when people are being watched they tend to behave better.
  • If you believe in palm reading, future predictions, and mind reading stuff, than know that the people who does these readings can predict half of the stuff about you by your behaviour, because our actions screams lot about us than our mouth ever will. Reading someone's non-verbal behaviour takes observations and concentration, with practice you can also do that.
  • If you want to know someone's character, than just ask them, what they think about others. You can tell a lot about a person, on how they speak about those around them.

Always trust your intuition (gut feeling), the feeling you get when you see or meet someone for the first time, can never lie.I always trust my intuition about anyone and anything I come across, and I don't know how, but it have always worked for me. I can tell a lot about a person when they talk to me, even if I don't know them personally, and in most cases it have turned to be true, I won't call it judging, but more of observing and understanding that person's character.

  • when you meet anyone for the first time, the first thing they look at is your foot wear, and judge you, so next time wear nice shoes/sandals when you go for an important event, to make a nice 1st impression. (wear nice outfit as well, if I haven't mentioned this point of ‘wearing nice outfit as well', than some smart people would have commented saying, "aren't we suppose to wear nice clothes too")



Paternal Wisdom. Want someone to take you seriously when you give advice? Tell them it was advice given to you by your father. People tend to add more weight to parental guidance.

  1. When talking to someone for the first time, take note of their eye color or iris pattern. While this piece of information is essentially useless, when collecting it you will be making direct eye contact with the person, which conveys interest in them and will leave a positive impression.
  2. If you sense that a classmate or coworker is angry at you, sit directly next to them. It has been proven that it's easier for people to get angry at people who are physically further away from them, so they have a much lower chance of blowing up at you during class/work/a meeting.
  3. I've seen a text post on Reddit where a girl liked a boy, so she would give him his favorite candy every time they saw each other. Pretty soon, he began associating seeing her with receiving a piece of candy and would become happy whenever he saw her.
  4. There's a small, locally owned convenience store literally right behind my house and with a giant mirror behind the checkout counter. I asked the owner why she kept a mirror there and she said that if you happen to be serving rude or impatient customers (which she got a lot of because she worked mostly alone so service was a little slow), they would see their own reflection in the mirror and calm themselves down.
  5. Give people as much choice as possible: ask a toddler if they would prefer celery OR carrots; ask a teenager if they want to take out the trash OR rake the yard; ask a subordinate at work which task they would prefer handling. This way, they will not resent you for forcing them to do something undesirable, but they still do what you initially wanted them to.
  6. In crowded places, humans tend to look others in the eye to get a sense of where they are headed so we can avoid running into them. Use this to your advantage by looking straight ahead in the direction you want to go in very crowded areas, and the people around you will make room for you (watch out for pickpockets!)
  7. Yawns are visually contagious; if you suspect someone is looking at you, just yawn and see if they yawn too. I use this all the time to see if someone is looking at me without actually turning and looking at them.
  8. If you want someone to agree with a point you are making, nod while talking. Because nodding is most commonly associated with positives and affirmatives, they will tend to believe what you are saying or agree to whatever question/favor you ask of them.
  9. Another trick I use all the time; if you are walking with a friend and happen to be holding a lot of stuff (aka very common for me at school), just hand some stuff over to them without breaking the conversation. Most of the time they don't even realize I'm handing them something and just take it.
  10. School hack: when you are walking somewhere you technically should not be, i.e. ditching class or going somewhere without a pass, just walk with complete confidence and a sense of urgency (head straight, looking forward, medium-fast pace). It will seem like you are heading somewhere important, have nothing to hide and more often than not no one will stop you.

1 |If you want someone to agree with what you're saying, nod and maintain eye-contact while speaking to them. Their brain will read your nodding as you agreeing with them and they will likely follow social behaviour patterns and nod back. Just don't go overboard or you'll appear insane.

2 | If you want to make a positive impact while shaking hands with someone make sure your hands aren't cold. Warm hands have been proven to leave a positive impact on the recipient, freezing blocks of ice less so.

3 | During an introduction, make a note of someone's eye colour. You're not going to use the information (unless you plan to write them a poem) – it's just a technique to achieve the optimum amount of eye contact, which people find friendly and confident.

What do Russians who live in Russia think of Vladimir Putin?

I lived in Russia 75% of my life and I still hope I'm qualified to answer this question.My first impression about Putin was very optimistic when he became a president after Yeltsin resigned. Yeltsin was terrible and we got a hope. Putin was young and smart with a nice background, but he got

Does the U.S. government fake hurricanes?

Does the U.S. government fake hurricanes?I love this question as it brings to light all of the things that modern social media and algorithms can really do. Much like a few failed news broadcasts that show a reporter struggling in rising water, only to have the camera
