9 Body-Language Tricks To Make Anyone Instantly Like You

Your body sends people signals all the time, without paying attention to them. The way you move your eyes, the way you shake a hand and so on. There are things you can do to send subconscious signals using body language that make people like you better, or at least give you the benefit of the doubt. This article compiles the best body language tricks for you to make friends and influence people, starting from today!

9. Steeple your hands

This projects an image of intelligence and confidence. It will make you appear more interesting and trustworthy. This works best in more formal environments, use it when talking to your superiors and watch your credibility go skywards. You can also do this when someone is saying something important to you, as it makes you look very attentive and shows the speaker that they have your full and undivided attention.

8. Posture is important

Posture influences the first impression people have about you. This is why positive posture is vital when it comes to influencing people. Positive posture includes standing straight (no slouching!) while looking relaxed. Sit straight and keep some tension in your core, but don’t look rigid. Besides making you more likable, it will also make you feel more confident.

7. Master the handshake

The ideal handshake is firm, yet gentle. Use firm pressure, but don’t squeeze the other person’s hand too hard. Make eye contact when you shake hands, as looking away signifies disrespect or a sneaky attitude. Finally, when looking into someone’s eyes during the shake, smile as if you saw something in their eyes that makes you happy.

6. Mirror your posture

Mirroring the other person’s posture is a powerful psychological tool that will influence his/her opinion of you. Without being too obvious, copy their movements subtly. Cross your arms if they cross theirs, take a sip of your drink with them and simply smile when they do.

5. Tone down the fidget

Fidgeting makes you look shifty, uncomfortable or even childish. Don’t move around too much during a serious conversation. Constant gesturing will make you appear anxious and over-excited. Instead, simply fix a constant gaze on the listener and show them that you’re fully concentrated on what is going on.

4. The Big-Baby Pivot

People are very conscious of how you react to them. When you meet someone new, turn your body fully toward them and give them your full and undivided attention, the way you do to a baby. This tells them that they are significant to you and that you genuinely care about talking to them. In short, it makes them feel very special.

3. Epoxy eyes

While socialising in a group of people, you should occasionally look at the person you are interested in, regardless of who else is talking. If your attention is drawn to that person even when they are simply listening, you are showing that you are extremely interested in his or her reactions. However, doing this frequently can make the subject uncomfortable. You should not stare at them intensely for a long time. Instead, you should primarily watch the speaker, but allow your glance to wander to your target when the speaker finishes interesting points or pauses briefly.

2. Old friends

 When meeting someone for the first time, pretend they are your old friends. This will cause your subconscious to react in certain ways; relaxing your entire body, softening your eyes and positioning your toes. These changes will make you seem more friendly and approachable. Moreover, if you pretend you like someone, it acts as a self-fulfilling prophecy so that you might genuinely start liking them.

1. Watch how you smile

Don’t flash a huge smile immediately after being introduced to somebody. This makes them think anyone in your line of sight would receive that same smile. What you should do instead: pause for a second after focusing on their face and then let a big, warm, responsive smile flood over your face and overflow into your eyes. Although it just takes a second longer, this technique convinces people that you are genuinely happy to meet them.








5 Things That All Single People Want To Tell Everyone

Nowadays it has become a trend to be in a relationship. It does not matter if you actually like that person or in love with him or her but society somewhat thinks it is a necessity to be with somebody. And if you happen to be single then there is something wrong with you. Personally, I have been single for well over 2 years and the most frequently asked question that I get is “why don’t you date?”
Well, for starters, maybe I do not want to date? Maybe people who are single are staying that way because they wish to and not because they are struggling to get dates. And there are a lot of other reasons which may frustrate a single person. Listed below are 5 of such things.
5. We are not alone
People have this weird idea that if you are not dating then you are alone. If you are not dating then you must be miserable and lonely. And that right there is a lot of trash talk. I mean, I personally have a lot of people in my life. I got my friends, family and work buddies with whom am constantly spending time with. If anything, if I did date, I wouldn’t be able to give her any time. So if you are assuming all single people are lonely then you are terrible wrong.

4. Single people are asexual

No really, who comes up with such ideas? For those of you who don’t know, asexual means people who are not sexually interested or have no feelings or desires sexually. Yes, there may be a lot of those guys around but not all single people are asexual. Some people can be very picky with whom they engage in sexual relations with. Others may not have the time to engage in such stuff. So all in all, the whole concept of single people are asexual is very absurd!

3. Nobody to share with

Yes, when you have a partner you can share everything with them and it makes life so much wonderful. But you don’t necessarily have to share stuff with only your partner now is it? You can always share stuff with your closed ones such as your mother, father, siblings, best friends, and so on. I have my parents with whom I am always discussing stuff and taking advice from. I am sharing my life with them aren’t I? Who says do you need to date to do that?

2. Single by choice

It might be very hard for people to grasp this concept by their thick heads but some of us are actually single by choice. Yes! You can remain to stay that way instead of jumping into one relationship from another and wasting time. And in the modern day, dating has become so much easier. Thanks to all the social media apps you can very easily find somebody to date if you wish to do so.

1. Stop giving advice

Yes, we get it. You only want to see the best for us and is trying to build up our confidence by saying stuff like “you are beautiful, funny, and smart and there are people for you”. But really, though, you need to stop saying such stuff. All of us know our worth we are just staying single because there are other things in life than posting Facebook statuses about how cute our other half is!

Heritage of Mech Kingdom

History: The proposed Bodoland area and the present Assam State along with its surrounding areas were dominated by the absolute majority of the Mech (Bodo) people as well as historically ruled by the Mech (Bodo) kings. Thousands of years before the Mahabharata era, most of undivided India were ruled by Mech Kings. Chikra Mech alias Chikna Narayan Dev or Chiknath Narayan Mech was the founder king of this territory.

Chikra Mech had established the historical Mech (Bodo) kingdom in the Chiknajhar area of the Kokrajhar which is still a golden heritage location. Not only Chikra Mech, even the Rangpur princely province located in Bangladesh was ruled by the historically renowned Mech King Mahirangaa Danav, who was also popularly known as Maayrong Raja Mahirangaa.

The present Koch Behar and its distinguished royal state was also ruled by Naranarayan and Chilaray whose grandfather was Haowriya Mech, while on the other hand Dambaru Mech was their forefather who belonged to the historical Mech Royal dynasty. Kumar Prithviraj Narayan Dev Mech, the 19th royal descendant of the Bodo King Chikra Mech also said that the recall of the heritage and historical identity of an ethnic tribe or community is a must for better survival of the community as a whole.
