The key points are eye contact, location, and flowers. Psychology that makes it easy for requests to be accepted.
【1 out of 4 people will give you their phone number… where is the “pick-up spot” with the highest probability of success, scientifically speaking?】
・Make eye contact when asking for a favor.
Just by paying attention to these things, you can increase the percentage of people who will accept you with open arms by a factor of two!
・If you want to be happy, talk to anyone you want.
People (subjects) who asked to “talk hard to strangers” increased their happiness
・The best places to solicit donations and volunteers are churches, hospitals, right in front of flower shops, etc.
In the experiment, people with injured feet were more likely to pick up their dropped belongings. It was revealed that the degree of people’s kindness varies considerably depending on the characteristics of the city
・Pickups are more likely to be successful in front of a flower shop.
Location and success rate of asking for phone numbers: 24% in front of a florist, 15.5% in front of a cake shop, 11.5% in front of a shoe store
These are the quotes from the article
Human beings are quite mood-driven, so a little psychology goes a long way.
Interesting bit of psychology in the above article, isn’t it?
Make eye contact when asking for a favor.
There are probably many people who seem to be able to do it but are not. As mentioned in the article, men may not be as good at eye contact as women, so men should be especially careful. The impression that women are more likely to listen to requests may be due in part to eye contact.^^
If you want to be happy, talk to anyone you want.
This article about talking to strangers on the way to work is very difficult for me. However, thinking back, I have rarely had a bad feeling about being talked to by a stranger, and on the contrary, I feel that it often relaxes me. Thinking about it, it might be a good idea to talk to them casually on some occasions. In my case, there are quite a few times when I have a conversation with a waiter or a person eating next to me at a restaurant. At that time, I still feel happy.
The best places to solicit donations and volunteers are churches, hospitals, right in front of flower shops, etc.
I wonder if churches are more likely to be kind to people because they are in front of God and think that God is watching them.
I think the hospital is the key to the “what the person with the injured leg dropped” in the experiment. Do people’s kindnesses change in the same way for people who are not injured?
What about florists? Does it mean that the flowers themselves have an effect on the mind?
Pickups are more likely to be successful in front of a flower shop.
I was reminded of the amazing power of florists, or rather flowers, to work on the mind.
I guess that means that the typical proposal makes a lot of sense psychologically: holding a bouquet of flowers, making eye contact, and asking her to wish for her to marry me. LOL!
Human beings are pretty much driven by their moods, so this kind of petty psychology can be quite useful.
I thought so once again.
Try it out. Next time, while holding a bouquet of flowers and making eye contact, ask them to do something for you, “Do me a ’00.^^
See you then.
After all, the situation (location) is very important. However, the power of flowers was reconfirmed this time.
