Phrases That'll Make People Like You

The great American poet Maya Angelou once said, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”


Your choice of words creates a brief impression that can lead to a long-lasting impression, long after the particulars have been forgotten. This is why the world’s most charismatic people tend to use the same phrases over and over again.

Below you’ll find 10 of the most effective. Consciously add them to your daily speech, and watch positive effects roll in.

Here’s the Situation
Like You

Ever known somebody who held onto information like it was a scarce commodity? It can be annoying and frustrating trying to find out what’s going on with something that could affect your future. Those who share good information in this kind of situation, not rumors or bluster, become some of the most-liked people around.

Tell Me More

Most of us like to talk about ourselves, but we also enjoy hearing that the things we’re contributing to are considered valuable and important. Therefore, you should always be on the lookout for opportunities to show that you’re listening to others, and that you appreciate their points of view. You can do this by explicitly asking them to share more than they already have.

What Do You Think?

People want to believe that their opinions matter, and that they can have an impact on the world around them. Therefore, if you become known as someone who legitimately wants to hear the opinions of others, you’re charisma will quickly increase.

What Can I Do to Help?
Like You

Insightful people know that nobody really does anything amazing without help from somebody else. Therefore, we’re all naturally wired to be grateful to people who offer legitimate help as we try to pursue our life goals. If you possess information, skills, or insight that’ll help others achieve their goals, others will appreciate you for offering them.

Please/Thank You

Manners cost absolutely nothing, but having them can pay big dividends. You can help yourself stand out from the crowd by remembering your manners and treating others as respected individuals. You give someone respect, you’ll get their respect back.

Let Me Find Out For You

Using this phrase shows that you’re willing to go out of your way in order to help somebody. If people know that you’ll do your utmost to help them, they’ll be drawn to you.


I’d Like You to Meet…

Introduce people to each other, and become a connector. By giving your credibility and time, you will automatically make people grateful. If this connection turns out to be a positive one, they will always remember that it was you who made it happen.

I Believe You Can
Like You

We all face moments of self-doubt in life. Sometimes all it takes to overcome them is to hear that somebody else doesn’t doubt us. To add to this, people will always remember that you were the one who thought they could achieve their goals.

I Think You Can Do a Lot Better

This phrase is very interesting. It’s criticism, but it’s criticism rooted in faith. Sure, you’re telling somebody that they have fallen short, but you’re also indicating to them that you have confidence in their ability to achieve more.

Let Me Be Up Front with You

Setting expectations, refusing to waste another person’s time, and being honest. This simple phrase suggests the other person is not going to like what you’re about to tell them. However, it can achieve positive reactions because it at least shows that you want to treat the person with respect.
