How to get anyone to like you - be a people magnet

Is there a secret to make everyone like you?
Sure there is... follow these tips and people will think of you as the nicest person in the world!

Don’t talk about yourself
Your probably think it’s a good idea to tell everyone, what great person you are, and what great things you
 have achieved so far, so people will have a better opinion about you or will be more interested in you?
Wrong! Talk to people about themselves, what they like and dislike.
But don't just stand there and nod. You have to lead the conversation, making sure that it stays about them and  they believe that they're the one in charge.  Also flatter them and make them compliments.

Ask for a small  favor
Ask for something you could easily do yourself and thank them, as if they have saved your live. At first glance , this doesn’t  seem to make  sense;  If you ask a person for a favor, you would think you would like the person more because they did you a favor; however, this is not the case. When a person does someone a favor, they feel good about themselves. And if you  can make a person feel good about themselves, they will like you. Asking someone to do you a favor is not all about you. It is all about the person doing you the favor.  Just do not overuse this technique.

Stop the gossip and the negative talk
Don't complain about your day, and don't talk bad about people all the time, if ever.
They would automatically assume that you gossip about them behind their backs.

Smile. Simple as that.
But make sure it's not a fake smile. A smile sends the message "I like you." When you smile at someone, they have a hard time not returning the smile. A smile triggers a small endorphin release in the brain, which promotes a feeling of well-being.
If one person smiles, it makes everyone smile.

Tilt your head
The head tilt is a slight tilt of the head to one side or the other. This cue signals that the approaching person is not a threat because they are exposing their carotid artery.
The carotid artery is the primary source for blood to reach the brain and if disrupted, causes severe brain damage or death within minutes.

Don't forget eye contact whenever you talk to anyone
This will make you seem more confident and like you care about what
you are talking about or who you are talking to.
Never, ever look at your watch or drift off with your thoughts somewhere else.
Pay also more attention to your body language; don’t ever cross your arms in front of you.

First impressions do matter
Look like a friendly and attractive person,
and this does not mean you have to have to dress in the same way as everyone else.
You just need to look open, honest, natural, friendly, outgoing and clean.
People usually decide within seconds if like you or not.
At the end of the day you need to remember - there is no point in pretending to be what you are not.
Most often pretense will eventually be found out.  Be your happy self and everyone will like you!
