It may seem obvious, but the most likable people are those who truly listen when engaging in conversation with others. Showing genuine interest, asking follow-up questions and making them feel like the most important person in the room – even when they really, really aren’t. Trust us… everybody LOVES to talk about themselves. Some of the most unlikeable things you can do is relate every comment they make back to a story about yourself, or just spend more time thinking about what you’re going to say next than listening. Try it – it works!
