1. The Power of “YES”
While in savage argument, if you are intended to express your opinion in a cool way, never use “But” or “No”. Try “Yes”, “You are right” and “Okay” instead. It will make the arguer value your thoughts as positive words make you sound more mature and diplomatic.
2. Addressing with the Name
A very simple yet very effective trick you may apply to someone by using their name.

Let’s say you want to give a difficult task to someone who may accomplish it but there might possibilities that he will show many excuses or will try to pass it over instead of choosing the easiest one as a task. Here, if you give him options from the beginning more difficult one along with your original difficult task. You will see he will gladly choose the original version of your task.

11. Scaling the real character
It’s really tough to figure out the real character of someone. But these psychological tricks are very useful and depend on how successfully you applied. To gauge the real character of someone you need to pay attention to how he or she behaves with someone who is not important to him or her.
Another way you will gauge the real character of a person by how they talk about other people.

The application of the word “Because” instantly boosts your message to become more persuasive.
15. Praise hard paradox
Who doesn’t want to get praised? Praise someone as hard as possible so that they will bound to feel they are really good at something, and by doing that you are actually throwing them into a paradox, they will gladly do anything you ask as a favor. So the next time you ask someone a favor, praise them immensely and you’ll definitely see the magic.
