20 Simple Psychology Tricks
We’ve put together this awesome compilation of 20 psychological tricks and tips that’ll work on any of the people you meet in daily life. Isn’t that pretty cool?
The best part of this is that you can immediately start testing them out for yourself.
Here are the top 20 best psychology tricks:
20. Getting Information
If you have a friend that struggles to open up to you, tell you how their feeling, or even give you simple information; this trick is a perfect way to get that information out of them in full detail.
Ask them a question, and if they respond partially, or it feels like they’re hiding something, simply keep eye contact and remain silent for a few seconds.
The silence combined with eye contact will make them uncomfortable. They’ll do anything to break this tension, even if that means giving you the information they were holding back.
So remain silent for a few seconds, and they will most likely continue to talk.
19. The Snack-man
If you are in a group of people, or even just with one other person, and you feel like conflict is about to break out, try this.
People who are eating usually feel comfortable within their environment. Eating is a calming activity, and will likely help to smooth out conflict.
If someone is angry with you and you start to eat, this will help keep conflict at bay. This fact was originally discovered after two people were fighting and one guy stepped in between them whilst eating a slice of pizza.
He was coined the snack-man.
18. The Stalker Detector
Do you ever get that feeling like somebody’s eyes are on you and they’re intently watching you? Maybe you can feel somebody’s stare on the back of your head?
If you want to find out whether or not they were watching you, try this simple psychology trick:
Make sure they can see you when you yawn. After you yawn, turn and look at them. If they’re now yawning, you know that they were watching you. This is because yawning is contagious.
Try it… watch a video of someone yawning, and see if you do the same. In fact, even while writing this section of the article, I’m finding myself yawn uncontrollably.
This is a great trick for anybody who wants to find out if someone is showing an interest in them, like a crush or so on.
17. Destroying Ear-Worms
Ever had a song stuck inside your head?
I know you have…
The melody just keeps replaying over and over inside your mind, but you can’t quite seem to remember which song it is! And while you can’t remember, you keep trying to remember. Which leads to you wasting a huge amount of time trying to remember the name of something incredibly pointless.
Well, here’s the common psychology trick you’ve been waiting your entire life to hear.
Think of the end of the song. Not the beginning, or the middle. The end. Your mind will continue to think of things that are unfinished or incomplete, according to the Zeignark effect.
Therefore if you think of the end of the melody, the song will be complete and your mind will reset. This’ll release the song from your mind, so you can get back to focusing on something productive.
16. Always Agreeable
Want people to agree with what you’re saying?
All you have to do is start nodding whilst you’re saying the thing you want the person to agree with.
The “nodding” action makes the person start to believe what you’re saying is actually true, and therefore they will most likely begin to nod as well, and agree with you.
This can work in certain situations where you might need to make a good impression on someone, but don’t get greedy. This won’t work on everyone.
