1. If You Want People Take You Seriously
When you tell something to people, you want them to take what you say seriously. To achieve that, you should tell them what your parent taught you. Humans usually believe the advice given by parents.

4. Make People Agree With You
When you want to make other people agree with you, you should nod while you are talking because that shows that you tell the truth. Also, according to social behavior patterns, people usually nod back.
5. Make Space in Crowded Subways
If you do not like crowded subways, you can make some space by looking right in front of you, in the direction you are going. People will give you the way.
When we are in places with a lot of people, we tend to look at their eyes in order to find out where they are going. And, we look the other way in order to avoid each other.
6. Forget a Song Stuck In Your Head
Probably it has happened to you to have some song that you do not like stuck in your head. So, you should think about the end of the song.

You should not ask your kids if they want to eat broccoli, but ask them how many broccoli stacks they want. You can use this trick in every other situation you need.
8. How to Know if Someone is Watching You
If you have a feeling like someone is watching you, you can yawn and just turn around. If that person is watching you, they will yawn too because yawns are contagious.
9. Make Your Friend Help You With a Box
If you want your friend to help you carry a box, you should talk to them while you are handing them the box. Most people do not notice when you are giving them something while you are talking.
But, there are people who are more attentive and may feel confused.
10. Promote Friendliness
When you know you are going to shake hands with someone, you should keep your hands warm because their warm hands are a sign of friendliness. On the other hand, having cold hands indicates the opposite.
11. Be a Great Listener
When your friend says something, say the same thing but make a paraphrase out of it. This is an excellent way to make this person think that you are an amazing listener. However, be careful not to exaggerate with paraphrasing.
12. Make Someone Help You
Since people do not like to feel guilty, they would help you if you ask them by beginning the question with the phrase “I need your help…”
13. How to Know if Someone Doesn’t Like You
When you are confused, ask this person to borrow you something, a pen for example. Usually, people do not help other people they do not like.
But, there are people who would do a small favor even to those who they hate. Anyway, they will realize that you are not a bad person.
14. Make Them Remember You
When you are in a job interview, and you want to stay in the memory of your interviewer, you should attend first or last. This way your interviewer will definitely remember you.
15. Make Them Give You A Proper Answer
If you have not gotten the proper answer, you should be quiet and maintain eye contact. They will probably give you a complete answer. If that is not working, raise your eyebrows to show them that you will not give up.
We hope that these tricks will help you a lot when you need them the most.
