Transcript of How to make friends

Smile :) Learn Their Name! A person's name is his/her favorite word in the human language.
If you take the time to learn it, the courtesy will most likely be returned. (Carnegie)
- Start by learning the names of people in your class
- Try to say hi to people by name at lunch or passing classes
- If you have trouble with names, try to remember something interesting about the person. Its a conversation starter and makes remembering the name easier. Become interested in them. Companions for Life By Max Burns FIND MOTIVATION It has been shown that the longer you smile during a conversation, the more friendly you are perceived. (Rubin Make an Effort to Smile) Making friends has been done for years, but sometimes it can be very challenging. Friends aren't just made in minutes either. They take time. In order to complete the process of making friends effectively, one has to have a clear source of motivation, or a need for companionship. The easiest way to immediately start making friends is just to smile. (Carnegie)
- pick someone and smile at them, or smile at everyone
- Do it at lunch or in class
- Find a reason to be genuinely happy
- Think of your favorite song, or something you like about the person
Smiling is only the beginning of making friends, there are 2 other steps that still have to be done. The final step in making friends is to become interested in the other person. This is the hardest, but most effective step of
all. (Carnegie)

On top of that, you have to learn names, and for maximum results, become interested in the other person. The people you meet in this process could be friends that you have for the rest of your life.
