How to win friends and influence people

Part 2 – Six Ways To Make People Like You

Chapter one, principle one.

Become genuinely interested in other people

 There is one creature that we need to learn how to make friends. It is the dogs. Why are dogs called “man’s best friends?” It is because whenever we come back home, we see the dogs so excited to see us. By us seeing them excited to see us we feel needed. Thus, we need to learn how to make friends from dogs because they make their life by giving love. This concept will apply to humans as well. We like people who show interest in us. Therefore, becoming genuinely interested in other people makes the opponent like you.

Chapter two, principle two.


Getting ready for work. Have your suit, have your tie, have your hair set, now you are ready. But are you ready? People now days care about what they wear on our bodies and not what we wear on our face. Obviously, it isn’t makeup. It is the expression that you have on your face. Smiling is a simple act, but simple as it goes it is very powerful. Chapter three, principle three. “People who smile tend to manage, teach, and sell more effectively, and to raise happier children. There’s far more information in a smile than a frown. That’s why to encourage met is a much more effective teaching device than punishment.” James V. Mcconnell

Chapter three, principle three.

Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any launguage

Remember that a person’s name is important to them, it is not just a word. So using their name and remember the person’s name is a good way to make that person feel important.”The average person is more interested in his or her own name than in all the other names on earth put together,” said by Dale Carnegie.

Chapter four, principle four.

Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves.

In this chapter Carnegie talks about his experience meeting a botanist at the party, Carnegie listened to what he was saying with full interest. But he wasn’t talking back, just listening to him having the interests. He was complimented by the botanist, that he is the most interesting conversationalist he ever met. People are more about their problems more than our problem. Therefore listening with interest will show the other person that you have interested in what they have interests.

Chapter five, principle five.

Talk regarding the other person’s interests

In the previous section, we understand that people like to talk about them. And have the others to be interested in them. The second thing that you can do to win peoples likes is to have a conversation in what the person is interested. “The royal road to a person’s heart is to talk about the things he or she treasures most,” says Theodore Roosevelt. By sharing the same interest, the opponent will feel closer to you.

Chapter six, principle six.

How the other person feel important

How could we cheer someone who is in a bad mood, when they do not feel needed from someone. We should interact with the person with honest admire. It might be difficult to do so to a stranger, but pushing ourselves to think of something and telling them will help them. “It we are so contemptibly selfish that we can;t radiate a little happiness and pass on a bit of honest appreciation without trying to get something out of the other person in return – if our souls are no bigger than sour crab apples, we shall meet with the failure we so richly deserve.” Dale Carnegie.
