How to Use Psychology to Influence People

This is taken from an article written by Gregory Myers at ListVerse.

Have you ever had a friendship crush on a person that you just couldn't figure out a way to win over? Or, someone you feel uneasy asking for a necessary favour?

At ListVerse, Gregory Myers has kindly put together a list of 10 psychology tricks you can use to influence people to benefit you. Though, he makes it clear that these do NOT include unethical or harmful tactics.

The list is as follows:

  1. Ask for favours (Benjamin Franklin effect).
  2. Aim high - Ask for more than you need.
  3. Use the person's name.
  4. Flattery will get you everywhere.
  5. Mirror their behaviour.
  6. Ask for favours when someone is tired.
  7. Start with a request they can't refuse.
  8. Keep quiet - Don't correct people.
  9. Paraphrase and repeat back what they said.
  10. Nod a lot when leading up to asking for a favour.
