5 Ways to Build the Interest of Others

5) Study Body Language

Reading body language is an art that they don't teach you in school. It tells you a whole lot about the person you're speaking to. Body language tells you about a person's openness and how interested they are in you.

One way to build interest is to sort of mimic what that person does. For example, if the person you're engaging in conversation with moves back... move back also. It is mirroring which shows you're attentive to the way the other person is feeling. It shows that you are paying attention and are aware of that person. If you want to build interest in others, show your interest by learning to read body language.

4) Ask Many Questions

When talking to a person you would like to make interested, find out what they are interested in. Ask many questions about the person. People are mostly interested in themselves and when you act like you're interested in what they say they begin to feel that you're interested in them and start asking you questions. Ask meaningful questions like, are you an only child? or ask about their hobbies and interests.

3) Create a More Fun Life

If you want to create interest, be interesting. Go out, have a good time and make fun memories. It is important to build yourself so that you can really live what you're talking about. How do you expect to be interesting when you are living a dull and boring life. Nothing wrong with lounging around and relaxing here and there but once in a while you have to get out of your house and build interesting memories. Your memories and stories will captivate others and make them more interested in you.

2) Become more Knowledgable

As you know knowledge is power and we all love to be around super smart people when making big decisions in life. We go to doctors when we are not feeling well, we go to builders to help us fix things around the house, and we call an Uber when our car is broken down. You should build your knowledge and try to learn about everything. Use the internet to help you gain more knowledge on interesting topics. I honestly have to say when you learn about things, not too many people know of, you feel powerful and that my friends build interest.

1) Learn about Yourself

Ask yourself "What am I the best at?" and if you can't answer that you haven't challenged yourself enough. Do you want to build interest in others? First, build interest in yourself. The key to making other's respect you is to build upon yourself. It is important to read, exercise and diet. We all appeal to these celebrities on TV with bland personalities because we are so interested in their looks. We find them fascinating even though they don't have anything special to talk about. The truth is we are more interested in other's appearance than we are of the mind. Yes, the mind to me is way more important than looks but you have to be realistic. Work on yourself, your mind, body and spirit and you will build the interest of others.
