The Science of Likability: 60 Evidence-Based Methods to Radiate Charisma, Make a Powerful Impression, Win Friends, and Trigger Attraction Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
One hundred percent scientific and proven ways to make friends quickly, turn enemies into friends, gain trust, and be flat-out likable.
Utilize of the most interesting, shocking, and counterintuitive scientific findings to simply make people want to be around you.
The Science of Likability takes over 60 seminal scientific and psychological studies and breaks them down into real, usable guidelines and tips to create the presence you have always wanted. Every piece of advice in this book to increase your social standing and likability factor is 100 percent backed by in-depth, peer-reviewed research.
Learn how subconsciously make yourself likable, trustworthy, and intelligent.
You can get a new haircut and wardrobe, and you can even learn funny jokes. But likability is something more. It's subconscious, and it's the small signs that signal our brains to let their guards down and embrace others. Learn what common sense and intuition don't teach you. We know what to do if we want to make someone hate us - we now also know what to do to make someone like us.
Understand what makes people tick, and strategically give it to them. From Freud, to Cialdini, to Pavlov, to Schachter, to Goleman, these studies are insightful, analytical, sometimes surprising, but most importantly effective and actionable. Pair that with the insight and human intelligence factor of best-selling author and social skills coach Patrick King, and you have a guide that can be listened to equally for education as for helpful, real advice. Patrick's writing draws on a variety of sources, including scientific research, academic experience, coaching, and real-life experience.
Some topics that are included in this book are:
- How to take advantage of people's memories for your sense of charm.
- The power of equity in relationships and friendships.
- A literal formula for "friendship chemistry".
- The real way to use eye contact to build trust.
- Why tripping and being vulnerable in front of people is positive.
- Universal definitions of charisma, wit, and humor - seriously. Universal.

But it clearly does not work if you want to have a good and balance social life.
This book teach me an another dimension of social interactions. I feel that now i have the toolbox to improve my social life, this is the stuff that i have been looking for all my life. Invaluable knowledge.
I’ve been searching for so long now to find out what I’m doing wrong. Finally I found this book and it just completely opened my eyes.
2 days after I started to read this I practiced a couple of the techniques on my colleagues and got exactly the response the book said I would.
This book is great because it covers so many different aspects of the psychology behind connection. This book is written in very clear, easy to understand language. Each concept is explained clearly, an example is provided and there is also a summarized explanation of the scientific study on the concept.
At the end of each chapter the concepts within that chapter are summarized so that you can see how they inter-connect with each other.
The book isn’t long but it doesn’t need to be. It is very well thought out, concise and gives plenty of useful food for thought. It’s the type of book I need to read more than once and actually take notes because there’s so much to take in.
I highly recommend this for anyone who can’t figure out why they struggle to connect.
The only criticism I would give this book is the chapter at the end that summarises all the summaries. It’s pointless and I didn’t bother reading past the first couple.
