Smile.It really works wonders.


People unconsciously mirror the body language of the person they're talking to.Don't underestimate the power of smiling. Additionally, laugh and tell jokes. If you want to be likable, use positive body language and people will naturally return the favor.


Give a firm handshake.


A weak handshake screams a frail inner core. The firmness of your grasp helps someone determine your inner character, or lack thereof.Research shows that people decide whether or not they like you within seconds of meeting you. A firm handshake contributes largely to that first impression, as do strong posture and positive body language.


Make an eye contact with the person.


It requires no practice or special skill -- just the commitment to meet someone's gaze and look them in the eye while conversing.It is a simple thing, but it remains one of the most impactful life hacks around. The most attractive quality in a person is confidence. But 'be confident' is not very good advice. Instead, find the best proxy for confidence, in terms of interactive behavior. And that's eye contact.


Put your phone away when u meet someone.



And keep it there until your conversation or meeting is over. Pay attention. Look at them. Stop what you're doing. No interruptions please.This is another simple yet effective habit that can be executed immediately and does not require any effort or skill.


Actively listen to the other person.




Active listening requires primarily four steps- hearing, interpreting, evaluating, and responding. Simply hearing words doesn't work always. Likable people truly listen to the person they're talking to. Evaluating means steering clear of quick judgment and jumping to conclusions. Make sure you have all the pertinent information before forming or expressing an opinion.
