If you want to convince someone of something, speak in a low voice. Serious voices have more influence on people and work when they try to get them to agree with you.
At the same time, be sure to take breaks and change the volume of your voice, drawing attention to the most important moments. All of these tips show people that you know what you’re talking about.
We decided to find out what helps famous people to stay calm and relaxed when talking to each other and what secrets we can adopt and use in our everyday lives.
8. Not Hiding From Their Audience
If you can choose to stand or sit in front of the audience, always choose to stand because it will give you a better choice of gestures that will influence the people you are talking to.
Also, there should be no barriers between you and the audience: instead of getting on a podium, let people see your whole body and show that you have nothing to hide.
7. Showing Their Interest
Simply tilting your head can help you gain someone’s trust. Show that you are interested in the person or what they are talking about.
And if someone else tilts their head to find out what interests you: change the subject. If the tilt remains, it’s you they are interested in, not what you are talking about.
6. Mirroring Body Language
Thanks to mirroring, people can establish better connections with others and make them believe that they share the same opinions.
However, people often mirror the body language of others without even thinking about it.
5. Holding A Purse, A Glass, Or Other Things In Their Left Hand
Label expert Myka Meier noticed that when entering a building or attending an event, royals try to hold their things with their left hands. This frees up the right hand for a handshake. This is what Princess Diana did and what Meghan Markle does now.
And if you’re at a party, you can use a flat clutch as a tray for a glass while shaking someone’s hand.
4. Watch Their Legs
As you probably know, it is easier for attractive people to earn people’s trust. Myka Meier recommends that men keep their legs at hip-width and keep the soles of their shoes down to show everyone the best part of their shoes, rather than what you’ve stepped on.
Girls can use the famous royal leg position – the legs appear to be tied at the ankles and shins and tilted to the side. It is important to keep your heels low.
3. Dressing Accordingly
When you go to a job interview or an important meeting, do not wear clothing that covers your chest and neck.
Because according to former FBI agent Joe Navarro, these clothes make people feel like you have something to hide.
That is why politicians often choose suits with low buttons that create an impression of honesty.
2. Trying To Avoid Awkward Situations
Nothing destroys a good relationship like an embarrassing situation. One is when you go to kiss someone you know on the cheek and you bump noses, or even worse, lips.
To avoid these situations, Myka Meier recommends remembering this: always give your right cheek for the kiss and kiss others on the right cheek.
1. Not Ignoring Gender Differences
Most of the time, men find face-to-face conversations aggressive. So when you talk to a man, it is better to be on his side: the conversation will be more friendly.
Women are less inclined to compete, which is why they like to meet face to face. When they do, they accomplish several things:
- They get more information about the person because they can see it and can change something during a conversation, adapting to the new information and the mood of the couple.
- They maintain eye contact and focus on each other.
- They show the partner that you are actively listening to them.
- They better hold the partner’s attention (there are less irritation and other information).
