How to make people like you instantly -
I WAS WAITING in line to register a letter in the post office at Thirty-third Street and Eighth Avenue in New York. I noticed that the clerk appeared to be bored with the job – weighing envelopes, handing out stamps, making change, issuing receipts – the same monotonous grind year after year. So I said to myself: ‘I am going to try to make that clerk like me. Obviously to make him like me, I must say something nice, not about myself, but about him. So I asked myself, “What is there about him that I can honestly admire?” ’ That is sometimes a hard question to answer, especially with strangers; but, in this case, it happened to be easy. I instantly saw something I admired no end.
So while he was weighing my envelope, I remarked with enthusiasm: I wish I had your head of hair.’
He looked up, half-startled, his face beaming with smiles. ‘Well, it isn’t as good as it used to be,’he said modestly. I assured him that although it might have lost some of its pristine glory, nevertheless it was still magnificent. He was immensely pleased. We carried on a pleasant little conversation and the last thing he said to me was: ‘Many people have admired my hair.’ I’ll bet that person went to lunch that day walking on air.
I told this story once in public and a man asked me afterwards: ‘What did you want to get out of him?’
Oh yes, I did want something out of that chap. I wanted something priceless. And I got it. I got the feeling that I had done something for him
That is a feeling that flows and sings in your memory long after the incident is past.
Almost everyone considers himself important, very important. ‘Talk to people about themselves and they will listen for hours.’
