How to impress people in just five minutes of conversation.
Look into their eyes while talking
The very first thing people notice in someone (including me) is their eyes. Your eyes can reveal many aspects of your personality. Whether you are confident or you are hiding something can be easily revealed from your eyes. I personally like when someone looks into my eyes while talking to me. This way, they look confident and engaged with me. Holding someone gaze is the best way to connect with them on a personal level.
Breaking the mirror
A situation which usually develops when your conversation is going bad which is referred as” mirror”.
Initiate a conversation. Sometimes we either just agree or repeat the words which make a conversation boring.
Few below changes in your conversation can make your conversation interesting.
Know what’s going on around
You don’t need to be a master in every field. But being current on latest news is also impressive. This doesn’t mean you need to know who won the singing show happened last night. But, at least catch up with the headlines during the weekend. Those who are updated with the current events can easily impress people.
Note:- Do not try to prove how much you know, talk about the topic only when it comes up. 😛
Be natural and different
“Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else”. Be yourself, be unique..! says, Judy Garland. Create your own unique style and this way people easily notice you (of course, don’t be weird).
But at the same time be natural. Do not try to impress people (Did I just said something contrary?).
No! When you try to impress people you can easily get caught. The list in this article will help you to be natural and yet be different. Small gestures like starting a conversation, compliments, etc. work great to impress people.
Give genuine compliments to those who deserve
When you give unique and specific compliments to someone they feel good about you and themselves. Who would not? I love to receive compliments, especially the genuine ones. But, of course, I don’t like hearing the same stuff like I like your smile, eyes etc.
Note: Please don’t overdo it and prove yourself and immature nut.
Empathy is what we need. Honestly, I have an ego problem (just like you), so when someone gives me unwanted suggestions I tell them to mind their own business. Even if you don’t have an ego, but you would still not welcome someone who gives you unnecessary feedback. You can, of course, tell them in the later stage when you build up a good rapport. Bottom line? People love to be accepted the way they are.
Over delivering and under promising
Say something which you can do. Who would like someone who promises to meet you and then doesn’t come up without prior informing? A “no” is better than “maybe”. Don’t make promises just to impress someone. Set low expectations and surprise them when you deliver your promise.
