A few extraordinary social habits that will make you super likeable.
1. Don’t call someone more than twice continuously. If they don’t pick up your call,
presume they have something important to attend to.
2. Return money that you have borrowed even before the person you borrowed from asks for it.
It shows your integrity and character. Same goes with books, bags and clothes.
3. Never order the most expensive dish on the menu when someone is giving you a lunch/dinner.
4. Don’t ask awkward questions like ‘Oh so you aren’t married yet?’ Or ‘Don’t you have kids?’
or ‘Why didn’t you buy a house?’ Or why don’t you buy a better car? For God’s sake, it isn’t your problem.
5. Always open the door for the person coming behind you. It doesn’t matter if it is a guy
or a girl, senior or junior. You help create a civic society by treating someone well in public.
6. If you go to a restaurant with a friend and he/she pays now, insist on paying the next time.
7. Respect differences in opinions. It’s not a personal attack on you if someone thinks differently.
Remember what’s 6 to you will appear 9 to someone facing you.
8. Never interrupt people talking unless you wish to disrespect that person.
9. If you tease someone, and they don’t seem to enjoy it, stop it and never do it again.
It shows how considerate you are.
10. Say “thank you” when someone is helping you.
11. Praise publicly. Criticize privately. Always.
12. There’s almost never a reason to comment on someone’s weight.
If they want to talk about losing weight, they will.
13. When someone shows you a photo on their phone, don’t swipe left or right.
You never know what’s next.
14. If someone tells you they have a doctors’ appointment, don’t ask what it’s for,
just say “I hope you’re okay”. Don’t put them in the uncomfortable position of having
to tell you their personal illness. If they want you to know, they’ll do so without your inquisitiveness.
15. Treat the cleaner with the same respect as the CEO. Nobody is impressed
at how rude you can treat someone but people will notice if you treat them with respect.
16. If a person is speaking directly to you, staring at your phone is super rude.
17. Never give advice until you’re asked.
18. Unless they want to talk about it, don’t ask people their age and salary.
19. Never talk about your riches in the midst of the poor.
20. Remove your sunglasses if you are talking to anyone. It is a sign of respect.
Eye contact is as important as your speech.
21. Don’t talk about your children in the midst of parents who are struggling with their children.
22. After reading a good message make it a point to say “Thanks for the message”.
APPRECIATION remains the greatest manner of all times.
