Awesome Psychological Hacks For an Easy Social Life
1. When someone answers your questions partially, don’t interrupt them while talking
When someone answers your question partially, then wait and never interrupt the person. Because, psychology says that there are high chances being that the person is going to complete the answer if you will say nothing. Suppose a situation where you doubt someone around you or any of your friends regarding something where you have many questions to ask them but whenever you try to ask them the questions, then maybe the person avoids or tables the situation anyway.
To tackle these types of situations, apply this hack. Stay calm and patient and don’t interrupt them and wait to the end and even if you feel that the other person is taking longer to answer the question. At least at the end, you’re going to get a complete answer and for the most part that is all you can wish for.
2. When you want to get something from someone, represent this as an offer
If you wish to get something from someone, then instead of requesting that person, present your request as an offer or as a special opportunity. Because, a normal person is always more provoked by an offer than a simple request. Even people always tend to help more when they understand that they can certainly gain something out of it.
To make it more clear, you will always find different business owners or course creators using the method all the time. They always want their customers or the normal people to buy their things or courses so that they can make a sale out of it. But they can’t always request them. So, they always keep giving different special offers, coupon codes, extra gifts in different times of a year for only a limited amount of time. Even, on those moments they mostly used to get the best amount of sales.
Because, when a person can buy something at a cheaper rate or when they win an offer, then also win their mind. It creates a special happiness and they always keep an eye on the shops that when they will give an another offer. That’s how, they become a regular customer and that’s also what the owners actually want.
So, from the next time, when you wish to get something from someone, try this method if you want to get fast approval from that person.
3. When asking for any favors, use the special word ‘because’
If you’re asking someone for any favor, use the word ‘because’ . It doesn’t matter how simple the reason is. But using this very simple word always used to have a special impact. Firstly, no one is actually going to give you anything if there isn’t any reason behind this. Like seriously why they will invest any effort before someone or something unnecessarily? So you must present a good reason and when you do so, use the word ‘because’ to elucidate the reason.
Since it’s been scientifically proved that when you use this word for describing any reason, the other person is likely to consider it as reasonable. At that time, they might be agree to do this for you.
4. Stand up straight always to look and feel more confident
You should always stand up straight because it makes you look more confident and you can also feel confident by yourself. Now you may ask me that how the pose of standing can be actually related to feeling confident?? Well, the simple answer will be we don’t have anything to do with the human psychology and with the science. According to Inc, When you slouch, you compress the space for your lungs, reducing their capacity by up to 30 percent. That means less oxygen can get to your brain. So sitting up straight may actually help your brain function better, as well as help you think more clearly because you feel calmer and more confident.
From my personal perspective, it has also become a common generational thing. As the world changed, we made different changes in different perspectives of our lives. But there are some things are being that have never been altered and this is also one of them I guess. To illustrate, if you will have a look of the ancient history, you will always find the big empires and kings always standing straight as they ruled the world with their confidence and power. Even for the common people, in this generation, it’s also the same. According to AFMC, Slouching indicates a lack of interest in the other person and their words, or that you don’t care how they think about you. Poor posture can also indicate a lack of self-esteem. Many features of modern life contribute to poor posture.
So, always have a straight posture to look more confident and self esteemed.
5. Never express your emotions excessively
You may find this term quite confusing at first. The main meaning of it is when you force yourself to do something. then you’re likely to be doing this only by being influenced by yourself. For instance, if you will force yourself to smile, you will eventually improve your mood.
Now personally I don’t know if it’s going to be the same for every situation. To be honest, I believe that you can’t force everything in this world to be happened. But we also need to confess that expressing emotions excessively is never okay. So always try to control your emotions.

6. When you’re learning something, teach others about it
When you’re learning something, teach someone about it. It’s a very popular learning process and toppers mostly use this method to memorize everything they read. You don’t need to always figure out a person to teach this. Just find someone who actually have very low to almost zero idea about the subject or topic. Then explain this to that person. If you can explain it successfully and if the other person understands it, then it means that you have understood it well. It also means that you’re be able to deliver your knowledge to an another person successfully.
Even if you can’t illustrate this, then while explaining, you will at least understand that what are the factors that are hiding you to not to learn this and then you will be able to solve yourself and will be able to try again. So, definitely try out of this scientifically proven psychological hacks if you want to understand a new or complicated topic.
7. Stay in a community full of positive people
If you want to be happy, then you need to make friendships with happy and positive people. Also you’ll need to emit all the negative people from your life. It may become quite difficult for you if you’re already being in a community full of negative people. But to become happier, you need to leave that community anyway. Because, this is a humanly nature that people who are unsuccessful or negative will never be able to tolerate someone easily getting into a higher position in their life in front of their eyes. So you can never expect to be respected or inspired or appreciated by any negative person.
Just like this, it’s been also proven that if you hang out with 5 billionaires for at least one year, then the sixth billionaire is likely too be you. It may seem impossible but we the humans are mostly influenced by the people around us. So, if you want to have a good social life, this one is definitely going to helo you like other psychological hacks.
8. If you want to make good friends, be interesting and positive
If you wish to make good and new friends then be a positive human being. This is quite related to the previous point. You see, if you understand psychology well, then it will also make sense to you that for 95% of the time, human psychology works in the same way. And that’s actually the fact here.
If you feel happy by staying with positive people, then the other person is also going to feel happy with a positive person. Even to make it more clear, if you know anyone who is kind of negative, then keep an eye on them and you may find them making 1-2 friends maximum. At least from my experience, I have been witnessing the same thing in my life. So, this one is definitely going to be help you like other psychological hacks to have an easy social life.

10. Always try to think about the positive sides firstly
A single negative thing can outweighed all the positive incidents. Trust or not, your brain always remembers bad things over the goods. According to Facts Net , it’s also considered as an effect of this thing called ‘negativity bias.’ It is also the reason why you keep feeling bad on how a co-worker insulted your outfit despite hearing a compliment from your client.
This psychological fact is also likely to have kind of a same effect on your social life. To illustrate, you may have a good friend with thousand good memories. However, over only one fight, you may end up hating that person. One of the biggest part of having a good social life is having the capability of making good friendships.
So, in these cases, firstly try to think about the positive things they did to you. You should definitely stay nowhere where you’re not allowed. However, if you will always think about the negative firstly, you may end up breaking most of your friendships which is definitely not good. So, always try to maintain a balance and remember this psychological hacks.
