Put on a happy face

A happier face conveys trustworthiness. People will consider a smiling face as more trustworthy, warmer and sociable.

Not all is lost if your first impression has not been as good as you hoped. If you can impress someone afterwards, they will often not remember their first impression of you.

Find common ground

Charming people are able to find common ground, even when they differ in opinion.

When you disagree, try to really listen to the other person instead of formulating your response. You might agree on a few things.

Also, keep up with current events and industry news as those are the things most people have in common.

Likeability is a quick judgment

We make judgments about someone’s likeability, trustworthiness and competence after seeing their face for less than a tenth of a second.

Making snap judgments might determine who we vote for. It can also influence our financial decisions.

When people are speaking, they begin to mirror one another. You can use that and copy their body language, so you can signal to them that you have a good understanding of what they're saying. If you change your own position and the other person copies you, the conversation is probably going well. If you are in sales, that is the moment to start your pitch.

Also, don't disclose too much information about yourself. Gradually reveal details that will continue to keep them curious about you.

Charm starts with the simple flash of the eyebrows, a slight head tilt, and a smile.

Next, make your interaction about the other person - if you make people feel good about themselves, they're going to like you.

You can also give the impression of interest by focussing on the different colors in their eyes.

RELATED IDEA

Show genuine interest

Maintain eye contact. Smile when the other person smiles. Frown when they frown.

In simple, nonverbal ways, mimic the other's person's behavior--not slavishly, but because you're focused on what they're saying.

That feedback loop helps two people bond--and the ability to bond is the essence of charm.

Be Yourself And Be Ready For Rejection

Having charm is not about deceiving others. Keep strong negative feelings to yourself, do your best to reveal who you are and if you disagree with something, do so nicely.

No matter how charming you are, there is no guarantee a conversation will lead into a relationship, but being charming at least keeps you in a positive light.
