20 Interesting Psychological Tricks That Actually Work

Psychology is a very effective way that teaches interesting things about people and also disturbing things. Indeed everyone is manipulated by the tricks played by mind in order to get the things done what it wants.



Here are some of the amazing psychology life hacks or tricks shared by reddit users that actually work.


1. If someone is staring at you in the subway, look at their shoes. Don’t give up. Trust us, it will drive them crazy.


2. If someone you are talking to is trying to avoid answering a question, just make a pause in the conversation while still looking into their eyes. They will feel uncomfortable and they will keep on talking. Maybe, they will give you more details or tell the truth (if they are lying) thinking that your silence and your look are signs that you already know the truth.



3. If you make eye contact with a woman, it is USUALLY a good sign if she looks down after instead of looking up or looking away by turning to the side. This is a submissive state and indicates nervousness/shyness (Which is a good indicator of her finding you attractive)


4. At the moment when your alarm clock is ringing, you should get up a little for a second, make fists and yell “Yeah,” as if you are a soccer player who just scored. This is strange but it will give you a sense of freshness and allow you to get up easily.


5. If you a problem with someone, but you don’t want to accuse them of something directly, change the way you speak. For example, the phrase “You didn’t close the window” should be replaced with “The window remained open.”


6. The law of attraction is easiest for people who are not very smart. The more intelligent a person is, the more difficult it is for them to focus. The LOA requires intense focus so it is difficult for highly intelligent people. The exception to this rule is psychopaths. Psychopaths are able to focus very well. Non-psychopathic, intelligent people can certainly train their minds to focus but it requires much more practice.


7. If you didn’t get a good night’s sleep, tell your brain that you did. This sounds weird but if you are completely sure of your words, it will work 100%.


8. If you want someone to feel awkward or uncomfortable, look at the middle of their forehead during the conversation.


9. If you work on a team and you have a really lazy team member, don’t give them tasks with the words “do this.” Replace it with “start with this.” Psychologically, it will seem that there is less work because they should start with something small. And then, after they do it, use the words, “Very good. Continue.” In this case, there is a high probability that they will finish the task successfully because it will appear that there is less work


10. If a person is really concentrated on a job (for example, in the middle of a serious phone conversation), you can extend your hand to them and give you whatever they are holding at the moment. They might even not remember it later on. The trick works the other way around too since you can give them something and they won’t even notice.



11. If you are always worried whether you locked the door or not or if your iron is off, just say some absolutely absurd phrase when doing these things (the phrase should be different every day.) For example, you say “green rabbit” and turn the iron off, or “oppressive crab” and lock the door. The next time you think about your open/closed door, you will remember that you said this weird phrase and will calm down.


12. Manifestation is a top down process. It begins in your mind with a thought, it is then amplified in your heart by your emotions, and it is brought into form through action.


13. If you have to speak in public, don’t forget to take a bottle of water with you. If you feel that you forgot the text, take a few sips and nobody will notice that the pause was caused by the fact that you forgot the text.


14. You can judge a person’s level of consciousness by how they react to struggles. A conscious person uses struggles as a conduit for growth. An unconscious person allows struggles to pull them further into unconsciousness.


15. Never ask a man anything that begins with the words “Could you...” This way, he will think that this is a theoretical question. For example, never ask “Could you call the neighbors”, because the answer “yes” will mean “Yes, theoretically, I could.” So, rephrase your hidden request to “Please, call the neighbors.”



16. Avoidance is just another form of attachment. It is attachment to not having something. An emotionally healthy person does not need to attach to or avoid things.


17. If you want to build a relationship with someone (for example, at work), just ask this person to tell/explain something to you even if you know the answer. This will improve their overall attitude toward you.


18. People who can only see the good in themselves project out the bad onto others. People who can only see the bad in themselves project out the good onto others. A healthy person has the capability of seeing both the good and bad in themselves and others.


19. What we deny or reject within ourselves will show up outside of us in our relationships. Relationships with toxic people are indicators that we have ignored or disowned some part of ourselves.


20. There are people who have cut themselves off from their life source and must literally steal the energy of others in order to exist. When a person is not connected to his own life source, he will automatically (consciously or unconsciously) begin operating within the predatory cycle in order to survive.
