Doing this one thing in a social setting makes you more likeable

Making a good first impression can sometimes be a daunting task, but a recent study has shown their is one simple you can do to impress others and make yourself more likeable.

A personality study once said that “most people spend the majority of their conversations sharing their own views rather than focusing on the other person," based on this idea the Harvard Business School did some research of their own...

The Harvard study got 2 groups of students together, one of the groups was given nine or more questions to ask in an instant-message chat window, the other group was just given a few questions to ask. Once the messaging was complete, the first group was ranked more likeable by those who were being messaged than the second group.

The Harvard experts took that to mean that simply by asking more questions of someone else (and talking about yourself less) you make yourself more likeable to those around you.
