Psychological Hacks are not the ordinary mumbo jumbo fueled by uncertain beliefs and vague principles. Instead, these are practiced and proven ways of tackling situations by successful people and molding them to their best advantage.
In this exclusive feature at What’s Up Life, we list down for you 8 clever psychological hacks that you must know to get the best out of life.
1-Be First or Last to Make the Most Impact
In interviews or auditions, it is always advisable to either be the first person through the doors or the last one. This is because people always have the clearest memory of first and last thing that happens, while the middle becomes a vague blur. Try it yourself and observe the colorful positive results that follow.
2- Avoid Getting into the Bad Side of People You Want to Get Along
It is quite a well-known phenomenon that people have a certain image of themselves and do not like if someone tries to question or sabotage it. Understanding that image in the first few meetings and validating it will make people like you more and this way you can avoid getting to their bad side as well.
3- Check who is closest to whom
If you want to check in a group who is closest to whom then crack a joke in public and notice the reactions of people. It is a given that when the laughter breaks each one will instinctively glance at whichever other individual they feel closest to in that group.
4- Make a good first impression by repeating first names
If you meet someone important and want to make an amazing first impression another way is to repeat their names over and over again in polite conversations. The trick is proven to develop instant fondness amongst people.
5- Want a meeting? Show excitement on call
Working hours for most people are dreadfully tiring and exhausting. Chances are if you want to meet up someone calling them working hours isn’t the best option as they are likely to be busy or not be interested in it. However, showing your excitement over a phone call if you are willing to land up a meeting with someone can do wonders.
By showing enthusiasm and excitement over the call you are actually passing that excitement via positive energy to them as well. As a result of which, even the other person is most likely to get excited on the thought of meeting you.
6- Ask for Small Favors
Ben Franklin once quoted and it has been proved too that If you ask someone to do you a small favor, cognitive dissonance will make them believe that because they did that favor, they therefore must like you. It is a great hack to develop trust in people for yourself.
7- Amazing Morning
Tired to waking up and cursing the world for an incomplete sleep? Well, we all do that and ruin the rest of the day for ourselves. A hack to give your mornings a kick start is that the moment your alarm wakes you up, immediately react by sitting up, pump your fists and shouting out a positive “Yeah.” The rockstar type beginning to your day will fill you with enough energy to help you complete all assigned tasks for the day.
8- Keep Calm to overcome Storms
When people are angry or shouting at you stay calm and peaceful. This will make them angrier and then later sorry for their rude and obnoxious behavior. It will also save you the trouble of increasing your blood pressure due to counter screaming.
