I’ve added an article below from Business Insider of the same title as this article. 7 body language tricks to make anyone instantly like you. Why?

Well, the article is basically giving some subliminal messages that you need to be aware of:

  1. People currently don’t like you and you feel it
  2. You don’t care whether people like you for being a fake so why not fake being likeable
  3. It’s ok to trick people into liking you so you can get what you want
  4. Other people are stupid and can’t see through these false disguises in seconds
  5. It doesn’t matter who you really are as long as you can fake the “like me” people will ignore what they see and hear after that.

So, read on, but take my word for it: it might just be better to work on being a great person that tricks that cause people to think you’re likeable even when you don’t feel you are likeable. My game would be “be yourself” and make it good to be it.

7 body language tricks to make anyone instantly like you

BUSINESS INSIDER ARTICLE

There’s no question that body language is important.

And, according to Leil Lowndes in her book “How To Talk To Anyone,” you can capture — and hold — anyone’s attention without even saying a word.

We’ve selected the best body language techniques from the book and shared them below:

The Flooding Smile

“Don’t flash an immediate smile when you greet someone,” says Lowndes. If you do, it appears as if anyone in your line of sight would receive that same smile.

Instead, pause and look at the other person’s face for a second, and then let a “big, warm, responsive smile flood over your face and overflow into your eyes.”

Even though the delay is less than a second, it will convince people your smile is sincere and personalised for them. According to Lowndes, a slower smile can add more richness and depth to how people perceive you.

Sticky Eyes

“Pretend your eyes are glued to your conversation partner’s with sticky warm taffy,” Lowndes advises. Even after they have finished speaking, don’t break eye contact. “When you must look away, do it ever so slowly, reluctantly, stretching the gooey taffy until the tiny string finally breaks.” This technique will help you appear more intelligent and insightful.

You can also try counting your conversation partner’s blinks. In a case study, subjects reported significantly higher feelings of respect and fondness for their colleagues who used this technique.

Epoxy Eyes

In a group of people, you should watch the person you are interested in, no matter who else is talking. If you concentrate on that person even when they are simply listening, you show that you are extremely interested in his or her reactions.

The Big-Baby Pivot

People are very conscious of how you react to them. When you meet someone new, turn your body fully toward them and give them the same, undivided attention you would give a baby. Lowndes says, “Pivoting 100% towards the new person shouts, ‘I think you are very, very special.’”

Limit the Fidget

If you want to appear credible, try not to move too much when your conversation really matters. “Do not fidget, twitch, wiggle, squirm, or scratch,” Lowndes says. Frequent hand motions near your face can give your listener the feeling that you’re lying or anxious. Instead, simply fix a constant gaze on the listener and show them that you’re fully concentrated on the matter at hand.

Hang By Your Teeth

This visualisation trick will help you look more confident with your posture, which Lowndes describes as “your biggest success barometer.” To do this, visualise a leather bit hanging from the frame of every door you walk through. Pretend that you are taking a bite on the dental grip, and let it sweep your cheeks into a smile and lift you up.

“When you hang by your teeth,” Lowndes says, “every muscle is stretched into perfect posture position.” Your head will be held high, shoulders back, torso out of your hips, and feet weightless.

This trick also works because of the frequency people walk through doorways. If you visualise anything often enough, it becomes a habit. “Habitual good posture is the first mark of a big winner.”

Hello, Old Friend

When you first meet someone, imagine they’re your old friend. According to Lowndes, this will cause a lot of subconscious reactions in your body, from the softening of your eyebrows to the positioning of your toes.

An added benefit to this technique is that when you act as though you like someone, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy — you might really start to like them. Lowndes says, “What it boils down to is love begets love, like begets like, respect begets respect.”
