“Do you wish you could decode people? Do you want a formula for charisma? Do you want to know exactly what to say to your boss, your date, or your networking partner? You need to know how people work.
As a human behavior investigator, Vanessa Van Edwards studies the hidden forces that drive our behavior patterns in her lab – and she’s cracked the code. In Captivate she shares a wealth of valuable shortcuts, systems, and behavior hacks for taking charge of interactions at work, at home, and in any social situation. These aren’t the people skills you learned in school. This is the first comprehensive, science-backed, real-life manual on human behavior and a completely new approach to building connections.
What is the difference between being annoying and charming?
I had a discussion with a friend the other day about the concept of Creepy vs Romantic.
The idea is that there is a very thin line between the two. The only thing that separates whether or not you see someone’s actions as “creepy” or “romantic” is whether or not you like that person back.
The same concept applies to “annoying” and “charming” in my opinion.
Just to add on to what I say in the video, I think this self-awareness could also help when you come across to other people. Its good to know whether or not you’re coming across as charming or annoying to the people around you.
This is easy if you know whether or not they like you, haha.
