10 TIPS How to Get People to Like You in 30 Seconds or LESS
Open your arms
According to Dr. John Diamond, author of Your Body Doesn’t Lie, the universal symbol of nurturing is to open your arms. By opening your arms, you expose your heart.
There is no more vulnerable position to be in.
By opening your arms and exposing your heart, you truly show that no-one has anything to fear from your presence.
When you’re speaking in front of a group, use this gesture, and people will instantly like and trust you.
This doesn’t always have to be a big, grand gesture - keeps it simple. Once again, practice in front of the mirror. You’ll know when it feels right.
This move can be applied when you meet just one person, as well. Simply make the movement smaller - you’ll still convey the same message of trust.
