Here’s a quick tip, reverse engineered from top politicians and seducers that you can use to quickly improve your charisma in the eyes of your listeners.
This works in person or on video, but not in text.
Here’s what you do:
Whenever you say something that you’re pretty sure people will agree is a “bad thing,” like rising prices, war, famine, getting fired, whatever, slightly motion away from you, with your palms facing outward.
Kind of like you’re pushing away an imaginary bad thing. Be subtle, and don’t call attention to your hand. If you’re ever seen a good magician, they are great at holding eye contact while they do sneaky things with their hands. It’s kind of like that.
When you get to the point in the conversation where you’re going to say and “push away” the bad idea, do something a bit extra special with your facial expressions, so people focus on that and not your hands.
The goal is to get them to see your gesture with their subconscious minds, but not their conscious minds.
The opposite is true when you’re saying “good” things, like an improving economy, losing weight, making money, whatever you can think of.
Similarly, do something a little with your face or eyes, while covertly “gathering” that “good stuff” closer to you.
Do this a few times, and people will start to subconsciously connect you with all the good things, and not the bad things.
Just be careful, though. When you’re pushing the “bad things” away, don’t put them on your friend, girlfriend, wife, or partner. That might cause trouble.
