Tips to Win friends and Becoming Sociable
Need to know how to win friends and become more sociable in your behavior? Primarily, you need loads of 'attitude.' However, your attitude should be entirely down to earth and not irritating or aggressive.

See how quickly you can win over your friends and become more sociable and pleasant in your behavior--
*Never criticize, condemn or complain. Self-criticism is extremely rare. Your criticism won’t be welcome. Criticism makes others defensive and resentful. Positive Reinforcement works better.

*Become genuinely interested in other people. People are most interested in themselves. Remember people’s birthdays and other important details.

*Talk in terms of the other person's interests. Find the interests of others and talk about those things. If you know nothing of their interests, ask intelligent questions.

*Be a good listener. Give your exclusive attention to others. Urge others to talk about themselves. Ask pointed questions.

*Make the other person feel important. People yearn to feel important and appreciated. Praise others’ strengths and they’ll strive to reinforce your opinion.

*Use Names whenever possible.

*Smile. Greet others with smiles and enthusiasm. Smiling comes through even over the phone.
