6. Compliments always work.
This is probably one of the simplest conversation hacks, but the best one. Everyone loves to be praised for the way they are, and when you compliment someone, they automatically end up liking you a lot. Positive affirmations always work, especially when you want someone to be on your side, and like you.
Many people look for some extra validation from others, and if you are someone who does that for them, then they will always be grateful to you for it.
7. Honesty is the best policy.
Honesty never fails to impress people, even when it is hard to digest. Being honest will make people trust you a whole lot more than people who are not because at the end of the day everyone is searching for the truth in some way. Be it relationships or friendships, every strong bond is built on a foundation of truth and honesty.
Putting on a facade to be in the good books of people will only take you so far, and after a point, you will get tired of acting like someone you are not. Give honest answers to questions, even if you feel uncomfortable. Be honest about a friend’s shortcomings. Be honest about your feelings. Be honest about your pain. Honesty will always add to your credibility, and make people turn to you for some good and unbiased advice.
So, the next time you find it challenging to talk to someone, or want someone to like you, remember these tips. These can help you break the ice and make sure that you are able to move on from the discomfort of conversing with others.
