Experts reveal the rare habit that makes you more likeable

The mystery of human connection is as old as Plato and as fresh as this morning’s “For You” page on TikTok. The elements of charisma remain as intriguing and elusive as the meaning of the Mona Lisa’s smile.

Why do we love some people while we reject others? Specifically, why do some people love us – but we always seem to rub others the wrong way?

There is a bit of science behind potential answers to the sympathy question. We can talk about pheromones and fate, but in reality, the psychology of attraction is as big a mystery as ever.

To provide some up-to-date advice, we asked a panel of YourTango experts to share a rare habit people can practice to help boost their charisma and become more likeable. Do these things and watch your popularity soar! (Or not. That’s why it’s such a mystery. But it’s worth it!)

Here are 11 rare habits that instantly make you more likeable:

1. Really practice listening to others.

A rare habit that can make someone infinitely more likeable is active listening. Active listening means paying close attention to what the other person is saying, not interrupting them, and showing genuine interest in their thoughts and feelings. People often feel validated and respected when they are actively listened to, which can create a strong bond between them and the listener. By actively listeningyou can also better understand the other person’s point of view, which can help you build a more meaningful and authentic relationship.

2. Practice being truly grateful.

Acknowledging something that is done well and the effort behind it is an empowering action. It’s often not done because the work was scheduled. But few people get much, if any, recognition, and that can make a huge difference. So when something goes well, let that person know. Say you appreciate them and what they have done. It’s a surefire way to please someone and spread some good vibes.
