Everyone wants to be popular, right? So what can you do to increase your popularity quotient?
Actually, I’ve just found an article that claims your key to popularity is what you don’t do. And as a bonus, not doing these can make you happier as well as more popular!
Here is a list of nine don’ts.
1. Don’t talk a lot.
2. Don’t blame.
3. Don’t try to impress others.
4. Don’t interrupt.
5. Don’t complain.
6. Don’t control.
7. Don’t criticize.
8. Don’t preach.
9. Don’t dwell on the past.
One final thought — Optimism is contagious, and very likable.
