The Most Useful Psychological Facts & Tricks

  1. To make people speak about something, you stay silent and they will start talking out of embarrassment.

  4. If you want someone to like you ask them a small favor or borrow their pen.
  5. Ask your kids to eat fruits or anything like this "Honey, you want 3 apples or 2 apples to eat". It gives them choice and they feel like it's their own choice.

  17. Reciprocity, if you do something for someone without expecting anything back most probably, they will do the same.
  18. If there is a scarcity of something you want to get that thing more. e.g. limited editions
  19. Commitment and consistency. If I do step one I will go for 2nd as well. e.g. If I put something in the shopping cart I might as well sign up for the website.
  20. Social proof, if someone is saying it then it might be true. Marketers use that technique.
  21. When studying for an exam sit like you are actually sitting in the exam hall.
