Persuasion. When someone is persuaded, it’s amazing how positive things turn out. Some psychology on how to persuade someone, empathy, and your personal development off of it will be talked about.
You probably like to think of yourself as a rational human being like when you have a decision to make, you take all the information you make a pros and cons list and you add that up to make the best decision possible. But you’re a human being and the truth of human beings is we are far more irrational than we’d like to admit. Oftentimes, our decisions come down to the smallest irrational things and oftentimes, that can be just a few words which is why in this video.
I want to give you 6 phrases that you can use to turn the tide in your favor when you’re trying to persuade someone to do something that you might like.
