How to Win People ?

H

Hey guys, have you ever tried to convince someone to agree with you or make a deal but failed? It’s a common problem these days. But don’t worry I am here to help you out. I wanted to share a total of 12 Ways to Win People to Your Way of Thinking. But if I write all 12 ways in one blog it’ll become really big and even you guys will get bored before finishing the whole blog. That’s why today  I’ll share with you 6 of those ways and six will be in part two. Stay with me.

1. The only way to get the best of an argument is to avoid it.

Always remember that you can’t get anything good out of an argument no matter if you’re right or wrong. You might apparently win. But the opposite person will never take that in a positive way. They will develop a bad image of your’s in their mind. So always try to avoid an argument.

2. Show respect for the other person’s opinions. Never say “you’re wrong”.

No human in this world is ready to accept that they are wrong, no matter if they are right or wrong. So never directly say “You’re wrong”.Example:

If someone has done something wrong, just say:

“You did well but if you had done it that way it would have been better” 

3. If you’re wrong, admit it quickly and emphatically.

Whenever you are wrong you should admit it immediately. When you fight instead of admitting the outcome will never be good. When you admit that you are wrong people trust you and begin to sympathize with your way of thinking.

4. Begin in a friendly way.

A drop of honey can catch more flies than a gallon of gall. If you begin a conversation in a friendly way, people will be more receptive and they also try to be friendly. So you can get more out of a conversation.

5. Start with the questions to which the other person will answer yes.

This method is called the Socrates method or the yes-yes method. When people start with yes they are more likely to agree with you. While no does the opposite.

6. Let the other person do a great deal of the talking.

People don’t like to listen to other’s opinions,  they enjoy doing the talking themselves. So talk as little as you can and be a good listener.

So this is the first part of “Ways to Win People to Your Way of Thinking”.I shared all these from the book How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. Which is an awesome book. You should definitely check the book out to improve your social and communication skills.
