What's the most outstanding life hack? by Lance Stevenson
Answer by Lance Stevenson:
Repeating people's words
It's an old nlp trick.
When you ask someone, “Hey, what's your favorite color?”
And they respond, “it's blue.”
You respond, “oh ok, so it's blue.”
It shows that you care about the conversation and are listening to what the other person is saying. It's subliminal reciprocation.
For instance, if you ask the directed person,”what are your interests?” And they respond, “I like fishing and working out.”
You should respond by saying, “oh you like fishing and working out.” It shows that you paid attention to what the other person said. And that infinitely increases affinity.
