The Secret of How to Get Others to Like You


The secret of getting others to like you

When financial wizard Warren Buffet was asked how to get others to like you, he gave some great advice.

He said, “Look at people around you and see whom you like and dislike. Figure out the characteristics of those you like and develop them in yourself, and what you don’t like in others, get rid of in yourself.”

Simple but powerful, isn’t it? It works, no matter how old you are, too.

I tend to be attracted to people who are friendly, outgoing, energetic and optimistic (but not overly perky).  And I really don’t like know-it-alls. So the first few traits are characteristics I need to work on  and the last one is something I need to try to avoid.

What characteristics are on your list?

    That’s a good way to evaluate for sure. I tend to agree with you on this one. I don’t like bossy folks, or those who profess to know it all either. I also can’t take people who openly gossip…makes me nuts. I like having to think about this one! Thanks for sharing.
