The book "How to Win Friends and Influence People" is one of the most popular books of all time. The book was written by Dale Carnegie, who had a background in public speaking and salesmanship. He used his life experiences to create a proven system for developing relationships and building strong connections with people.

Want to get people on your side? This is the book for you. It will teach you how to make others like you, win people over and keep them interested.

We are what we believe. But that doesn't mean we can't change our beliefs and our lives for the better.

Plenty of people today want to get ahead in life - but not so many of them know how to do that. This article will explain how to use psychology to win friends and influence people every time:

1. The act of subconscious

There are plenty of ways to influence people and positively impact their lives. It's not hard to see why most of those tactics don't work.

The first step is to understand that everyone has a subconscious set of beliefs, desires, and perceptions that drive people's decisions and behaviors. Your subconscious mind is potent and causes 95% of your thoughts and actions, says Dr. Bruce Lipton.

"Remember that the subconscious mind doesn't know right from wrong, true from false, or logical from illogical. To trigger a desired response in the subconscious, you have to appeal to it directly," says Lakshmi Prasad Hoizal.

If you want to influence people, you have to keep yourself present all the time. People generally avoid people who face difficulty making decisions and don't know the difference between right and wrong. For impressing people, you need to show them that you're more than just a human — a present and intelligent person.

2. It's always in the next move

Human behavior is an exciting topic, and it can be used to your advantage. Northeastern University says that "Human behavior is 93% predictable." This means that you can use psychology to manipulate people into doing what you want them to do.

You can always be one step forward from people. Doing this is very easy. You have to be alerted every time for their next move.

Not all people are alike. However, it's important to distinguish people according to their capabilities. Once you master the "next move tactic", predicting people's next move gets more accessible.

Instead of being angry at people, you can predict people's next move. This way, you'll get to monitor people and make better choices at winning friends.

3. Mastering social skills

According to Carrie Barron M.D, the ability to connect with others is a skill that limited people know. People rely on their natural charm or flashy gimmicks, but this approach will never win over the long run. The critical elements of connection are based on psychology and can be learned through understanding basic human behaviors.

Mastering social skills include speaking at the right time and knowing your enemies and friends. To influence people, it's always essential to understand how they socialize. To win over friends, you need to be better than everyone in every aspect. One thing that can make you stand by is your ability to make loyal friends and might never leave you.

This way, you can create more than one friend to share all your secrets with. An intelligent person never tells his weakness to a non-trustworthy person. So being different, you need to pick your true friends cleanly.


If you are looking to be a successful friend or influencer, you must understand the power of every action you make. A wrong action or act can degrade your personality. However, thinking and analyzing before every move is the best option.

This article has provided you with some valuable tips on using psychology to make new connections and friends. I hope these tips have been helpful!
