    - Never start your request with the words "Could you..." It can cause the other person to subconsciously assume that this is a theoretical question
    - If you ever want someone to feel uncomfortable, look at the middle of their forehead during the conversation.
    - If someone you're talking to is trying to avoid answering a question, just make a pause in the conversation while still keeping eye contact.
    - When asking a question that you want an affirmative answer to, try to nod subtly as you make your request. This trick is often used by restaurants employees to make guests buy more food, and it’s pretty effective!
    - If a person is really concentrated on a task (let's say they're in the middle of a serious phone conversation), you can extend your hand to them and get anything they’re holding at the moment.
    - If you want somebody to do something for you, casually say how they probably wouldn’t even be able to do it. Most people will try really hard to prove someone wrong when it comes to doubting their capabilities.
    - Here’s a good one for negotiations. If you like a person's offer in general but would like to get better conditions, pretend to be a little bit disappointed.
    - As soon as your alarm clock goes off, sit up, make two fists, and yell "Yeah!" as if you’re a soccer player who's just scored a goal. It sounds bizarre, but it really does help you easily get out of bed feeling refreshed.
    - If a person tries to pull you into an argument or some drama, say something nice to them. The ol’ “kill ‘em with kindness” trick really does stop them in their tracks.
    - If you have that one lazy person on your team that slows the whole work process down, don't give them tasks by saying "Do this." It’s better to say "Start with this."
    - If someone is staring at you in the subway (happens all-too often, right?), just look at their shoes. Don't give up, keep gazing! It’ll drive them crazy!
    - If someone has done something wrong, but you don’t wanna sound too accusing, change the way you construct your sentences.
    - If you didn't get a good night's sleep, tell yourself that you did. I know, it sounds like nonsense, but it does work 100% if you say it with meaning!
    - People are better at remembering what happened at the beginning and end of the day. As for anything that went on in between, it gets blurry.

    1)If you ask someone to do some something for you that doesn't know you well or doesn't k ow you at all, finish your request with a reason. Weather or not it's a good one people are 80% more likely to comply.
    2) When a woman is upset with you listen to what they say. Pick one point and respond to it calmly ending your point by compationatly saying their first name (no Nicknames), do this a couple of times and they will calm down and be more reasonable to talk to.
    3) When you want a guy/gall to be more interested in you, wether their a stranger or a friend. Ignore around 1/3 things they say in random patterens. It will subconsciously make them think what their saying isn't important enough for you. They will want to earn your approval and they will start to consider what they are saying to you, which will make them deeper. Then you can then connect with them without them resisting your advance.
    Be careful though. If you over use this method they will stop trying or may just think you ignorant.

    If someone is attacking you, scream FIRE! instead of calling 'HELP!'. Ppl
    are more likely to care or more willing to take on a scary situation if they think they have to get involved if something potentially dangerous will affect THEM. Sad but true. Now for the dark humor bit: saying 'HELP! I'm being stabbed to death!' probably won't help cos it will scare ppl or they will think it's too late to help anyway. Kinda like Dr. Evil not wanting to help Mustafa when he said he got burned (among other reasons he didn't care about what happened to him... 😉)

    If I'm being annoyingly probed by someone, like a salesman or something, I just start asking questions, or answering everything with a question. "Why do you think that?" "What's going on?" "You don't already know?" When they have to answer one of your questions, it switches who has control of the conversation, so you can endlessly take back the conversation, and never really give them any info.

    What works for me: when I cannot remember sth like someone's name, date, interesting fact etc. simply sth I usually know but have temporary "brain outage", I just connect my thumb with pointing finger (like when you show, sth is ok) and I wait. It pops in my mind literally in one minute. Try it. It helped me many times 👌

    You've got to be careful with the manipulative interpersonal tips...which is definitely what several of these are.
    First of all, a few of them (silent eye contact, for example) might get a result but will also make you seem very aggressive, or worse still, like a creep.
    Second, if you use one of them on someone who knows these tricks, they instantly recognize that you are trying to manipulate them, and you will lose significant trust.

    This one works well if you use it properly. In the middle of a conversation with a friend, and they say something, that you would normally find humerus or take better than most, respond with something like being kinda hurt by it, or offended slightly, this’ll quickly change their mood into a concerned one, and you can string them along for a bit, before saying that you were only kidding, confusing them, while also bugging them a bit.
