Words and Phrases That Will Make People Like You More

Posted May 21st, 2014 @ 5:01am by Chilli Amar


Do you want to make a good first impression...or be liked by people around you? According to, here are 19 WORDS THAT WILL MAKE PEOPLE LIKE YOU MORE:


Words No. 1 and 2: "Sir" and "ma'am": This doesn't work in every situation, but using these titles can be a sign of respect that gets people's attention. It can be important in professional relationships, especially when dealing with people you don't know well, and who are older or more experienced than you.

Words No. 3 and 4: "You're welcome.": Sometime in fairly recent history it seems people stopped saying, "You're welcome," and started substituting, "Yep," or, "No problem." This is a step in the wrong direction--at least in a business or professional setting. "You're welcome" acknowledges that you've done something worth someone else's thanks, while "no problem" suggests that it wasn't that big of a deal.

Words No. 5 to 7: "Here's what's happening.": If you've ever worked in an environment in which people guarded information like a valuable commodity, you'll appreciate how much affinity you develop for the few people who try to keep everyone else accurately informed.
