Dale Carnegie wrote an amazing book called “How to Win Friends and Influence People”. It is not a book of manipulation, it is simply a book of urging people to be more human and empathize with the people with whom they interact.
In the book, Dale wrote that president Roosevelt was very popular. Extremly popular. And the key to his getting noticed and being so popular was the fact that he remembered the names of each person he came into contact with. Remarcable? Yes. And no. He didn’t do this because he was a super-human. Don’t think that he had the memory of an elephant. He simply exercized. A lot. With each name he heard. After meeting any one person or group of persons he closed himself in his office and shut his eyes. Then, he recalled the faces of those persons and to each face he attached a name. He repeated until he thought he got their names right.
You see? A simple excercise. Why doesn’t everybody do it? Because they are too busy with only caring about their own selves. This is a great way to make people know about you. Simply remember things about them and then show them you remembered them. Everybody wants to be remembered. And you will have just won a new fan. A new person who will talk about you or even recommend you when need be.
