Friendship: How to Win Friends and Influence People

Friendship: How to Win Friends and Influence People

Dale Carnegie's book has sold over thirty million copies, and nearly a century later it still sells more than a quarter-million copies each year.

He encourages people to listen, be interested in others, speak to them from their point of view, sincerely flatter others, seek similarity, avoid conflict, and many other things that seem obvious, but that we all routinely forget to do.

However, his methods can be manipulative and lead to shallow friendships.

The Answer: Being Vulnerable

The Answer: Being Vulnerable

We don't want awful people to exploit our weaknesses, but the irony is that our weaknesses are where trust comes from

How do you signal you're trustworthy? By trusting someone else.

  • Vulnerability tells people they're part of an exclusive club.
  • Not only is vulnerability effective, but it's also not quite as dangerous as you think.
  • Psychology has documented the "beautiful mess effect"-that we consistently overestimate how negatively our errors will be perceived.
  • The occasional screw-up is a positive.

  • Not opening up prolongs minor illnesses, increases the likelihood of a first heart attack, and doubles the chance it being lethal.

The Bottom Line

Make the time, vulnerably share your thoughts, and raise the stakes.

  • If all goes well, they do the same.
  • With trust established, we can ignore costs to a greater degree, as can they.
  • If they are a true friend, it will feel natural to help them when they are in need.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
