How To Make People Respect You If You're Quiet

  • Manufactured Fear
    Manufactured Fear Před měsícem +1227

    The key, in my opinion, is not having fear. I don't mean having zero fear like the peaky blinders character, but however trying to overcome social fears, like the stress we feel when speaking to a random person on the street. We have to repeat a thousand times there's no danger. Once we have assumed we're not in danger, fear disappears

      When we try to apply this kind of zero-fear, I know this is sigma-style, but sometimes we will be looked a bit arrogant, actually in office area with hierarchical organization.
      For example, when I tried to share my concern with zero-fear with my VP (vice president) while I was just only a staff, they thought like I was rebellious person and arrogant.
      This kind of thing is not really necessary for generic implementation...

    These are things you do naturally when youre confident, these body language videos dont work because youre just imitating confidence. You cant lie to yourself about how you actually feel, people see straight through it

      They work actually. When you 'imitate' you are manipulating your mind to believe you're confident. Trust me, forcing yourself to sit upright and avoid looking at your phone and forcing yourself to talk in a leisure tone will do something. Even if you don't reach the 100% mark you will definitely not be at zero.

      I wouldn't keep eye contact 😂

  • Justin Dadswell
    Justin Dadswell Před měsícem +177

    I can go with the non-reactive part. But hold eye contact, just do it in a way that doesn't escalate things. My most vivid experience was a man that had a knife to my throat. He then slide the knife across my throat and said I could easy do this for real. While maintaining eye contact, I said "Yeah, you could". But that was the jist of it, my language and voice didn't say I was looking to attack him - it was simply matter of fact, yes you could do that.
    This was dealing with a violent person in my old job (he threatened one of my employees and many people of the public - which also probably alludes to realizing if the person really wants to or not - I knew he didn't want to).
    If I knew he wanted to hurt someone, I'd probably hold an askew contact with his eyes. Not looking directly at, but close. Show not afraid, but also understand he means business. Looking all the way to the side shows weakness, and for some reason weakness is a better reason to kill than not.
    He walked away. Didn't make him feel powerful and didn't demean him. Just solid eye contact and no flinching.

      Thank you. Ironically, if you try and "show confidence" it will end up making you less confident. The harder you try to impress people, the less impressed they will be. You are right. Only focus on the people who you need respect from. The vast majority of people you meet are not that important to you, so you should not consider them important either.

    People fixate on 'confidence-confidence-confidence'. It is the eventual outcome of good traits aggregating. Form and keep your inner peace. That is the first step. The other is discipline. Confidence is cross product of the two, nothing more. It's like trying to make pancakes without having any idea what are heat, grease, flour, milk and eggs for.

    As an introverted person, I’ve learned that the very first point he made about having slow movements is true. Before, I used to rush to do things, making it clear that I was always in a hurry. I started to be meticulous about everything, and people who I later befriended said I seemed confident. It works lol

      @Jaxan7294 Happiness is not found external forces, like you said, it is to be found inside the soul. Otherwise, you risk losing your happiness since everything can be taken. Your soul, values, virtues, and philosophy cannot.

    • Jaxan7294
      Jaxan7294 Před 3 měsíci +1

      @Cayne Reed Yeah I guess so, I'm passively studying it in my spare time right now
      Things like :
      Intrinsic motivation over social status
      Desensitization of negative emotions to increase positive ones and mitigate negative ones
      I don't consider myself a "stoic" but I try to extract the insights that work for me while not obeying its rules too strongly. Every ideology has flaws and I think I'm better off borrowing pieces from others to create my own, although still flawed one
      At least for me philosophical pursuits are more valuable then conventional self improvement, since it helps you discover what you actually care about, who you are, and strategies to deal with life instead of some guru telling you what you need to do in order to be happy and get everything you want
      That just feeds hedontic adaptation (we get used to the things and experiences we have so things and experiences that make us happy wear off) and neglects individuality

    • Cayne Reed
      Cayne Reed Před 3 měsíci +2

      @Jaxan7294 What you described, came as stoicism. Slow movements, proving for yourself not others, and focusing on your nature. It is not for everyone I concur.

    • Jaxan7294
      Jaxan7294 Před 3 měsíci +7

      @enricoleon_ Oh I didn't explicitly test anything too much since my social calendar isn't the fullest right now. I've been in a more introspective period recently
      When I walk slowly it forces me to be more patient and reflect more often and I don't really notice any social change, I think it comes across as intimidating sometimes though, at least that's what someone told me last year (i move slowly naturally, this was before i was aware of it and tried to move slower intentionally). I am also unsure how much people respect me since that is not really something you can gauge unless you ask, but I don't often feel disrespected so maybe it plays a part in that, but I often let people talk over me since I don't like interrupting them so maybe that's a form of disrespect if you think about it? I don't like being in people's faces and trying too hard to gain their attention
      Also my philosophy watching these is probably different to most, I don't put too much importance on changing myself to attract other people because that is a bit inauthentic to me and defeats the point of low effort attraction. If you have to try and act a certain way to attract people is it really attraction? I think trying to please everybody socially and have a strong presence is a great way to disappoint and burn yourself out, not that social status doesn't matter and that you shouldn't try to improve, it's just that there is always someone who will ignore you simply because they are attracted to different traits or are preoccupied with their own lives. How much attention you get from others doesn't determine your value
      So yeah I don't really have a clear answer for you since I don't take it that seriously and prioritize other things, I acknowledge that might be disappointing. I just watch these for some passive learning, it's fun to learn about people :) Being too concerned with how you come across is a recipe for anxiety so I try to accept my natural traits first, even if they are unconventional or weird and then use more covert methods like these if I need to. Example: If you have naturally dreamy eyes and look around when you think or reply to someone, there's no need to force yourself to make strong eye contact with someone unless it's important or are listening to them. Forcing yourself to do something unnatural to you can sometimes spur growth, but it can also be needlessly tiring

    These are some incredibly effective ways to instantly command respect from people:
    - Be vocal about your flaws
    - Compliment people around you
    - Hold your ground
    - Keep your word
    - Improve your body language

    • Hailey Nichelle

      Complimenting people too much can come across as obsequious, insecure, manipulative, or even creepy if you do it wrong. Compliment sparingly and make sure it's genuine.

    The world is made up of angles or perspectives. Convincing others that your angle or perspective is the way to go is only successful when everyone who is involved feels that they can benefit from the situation. Example: just like in sales. After all, don't we all want the best deal in life? Once you have sold your self in convincing others through conviction in who you are and what you believe in or stand for, then the situation will hold more weight in the minds and hearts of those you are trying to convince. Compliments or blowing sunshine up one's dark side will only get you so far. Most people see through that fluff, so be mindful of not laying it on too thick because that can possibly can ruin where your coming from. If it smells like 💩 or looks like 💩 it's most likely going to drive people away. Don't be phony be genuine to others and show them respect that is more important anyways. That was a good video. Thank you for making it. 🕊️

    Well, he's an actor. It's much easier to hold eye contact without breaking it when you know you are playing a role, and you know the other person is too. You know what the outcome is, and there's nothing to fear or be anxious about, since it's all scripted. There's a reason why some of us are actors, and others aren't: because they can't play a role convincingly. It's not like that in real life, though. Nothing is scripted, you don't know what's gonna happen, and it's much harder to be fully aware of your body language and your words, let alone control them.

      @John Smith I'm not sure what you meant. Did you mean "showed great confidence?" I don't think it shows that much confidence, though, for me to express an opinion that says nothing personal about me on social media, where you don't even need to use your real name (it's my real name, though). So why would you be impressed? Anyway, thanks, I guess...

    I think the key thing everyone should remember here is that it's actually pretty easy to keep your cool with a gun to your head -when you're an actor on a set.
    In fact, what would be more difficult is to actually act legitimately scared if you were an actor on a set.
    So I find it funny that we're looking at the theme of non-acting or less acting and in scripted fiction, as an amazing representation for how to act chill in real life.
    In essence - we are to be more of an actor than the actor needs to be lol

    These are great insights. One of the things I've discovered is that if you have settled your death in your own mind it takes quite a bit of edge off tension, fear, and worry. There is a saying, "Today is a good day to die." I've heard it attributed to the Lakota tribe and also some other sources so I don't know the definitive origin. Also the Stoic saying, "Amor Fati" is a reminder to know your mortality and act accordingly. If you are reconciled to your own death there is not too much left to upset you.

    Thomas shelby was a world war 1 veteran in the series. He was a tunneler, a job which requires you to operate in the worst possible conditions. He was a gypsy who lived his childhood in poverty. And all of this hardships coupled with horrors of the war made tommy who he was. Merely imitating his reactions to certain situations won't make you a tough guy. You have live your life out of your comfort zone to transform your persona into that of someone like thomas shelby.

    My personal experience with being able to speak in front of an audience is to be prepared and to have confidence in what it is you will be communicating. I found that I would almost zone out as I was lecturing as if everything else sort of vanished and I was in my own dimension delivering the message I had prepared ahead of time.

    Recognising your presence within the space and exemplifying it.
    Even if you know you're not the toughest guy in the Bar, saying hello to the Regulars you don't even chat to is a major sign that shows YOU are in control.
    You walk up to the Bar and someone else is already getting a drink and the Barman say "Aye, What're you havin?" TO YOU.
    Goes outside the place aswell. When people see you have a manner about ye, they know you mean business. Sometimes but not to often you need to expel that information.
    So look the part and you will be sooner than not!

    Body language goes a long way. Things like: standing tall, taking up more space, not crossing your arms tightly, and making good eye contact. It's the difference between "he looks so awkward" and "he's the strong silent type."

      I feel like you left out a crucial detail. To come off as the “strong silent type” of guy, you either have to be intimidatingly attractive or monstrously large. If you don’t have either of those qualities, you give off quiet kid school shooter energy.

    There's something else that is important that was ommitted. Whenever somebody does interrupt Tommy with a question, whether he's speaking or giving a proposal, he simply ignores it and continues onward with what he was saying. That speaks volumes without actually having to say anything extra.

  • Wibster

    I think 3-5 is a bit long but probably ok so long as you don’t stare straight into the eyes. Better to focus around the forehead area just above and avoid direct eye contact with strangers because the moment that direct contact is reached that’s enough to trigger certain types of individuals. Always have a clear understanding of who you’re dealing with

    The only character that I will compare to Tommy is John wick. He's quieter than anyone and holds great respect in his community. Now I believe he has earned that respect by his actions(fighting), but he's also not some crazy assassin who just kills anyone. He also speaks when he feels the need otherwise he's just a straight face but also shows his confidence.

  • Me Me
    Me Me Před 2 měsíci +2

    It's funny - I'm in my 30s and over the years have ended up with a demeanour (not personality) very similar to this. I've always been quite emotionally distant and "cold" from being some ways on the spectrum socially speaking, and also very analytical of people's reactions to how/what I say. I think a lot of it came from watching movies and shows growing up, then emulating the characters I most wanted to identify with; being a very shy, introverted and quite insecure child I obviously saw a lot of what I wanted in these cool, collected and persuasive characters. I've sometimes been accused of talking like a robot by those closest to me when dealing with stressful or emotional situations, yet one of the first words that so many people use to describe me is "confident" or "assured" or something of that nature.
    Yet, I know damned well that it's still nothing but a facade and an emulation that I wear like a suit for everyone to see. I've got very comfortable in it, and it seems natural to those around me - yet inside I doubt, second guess and naysay every decision I make on a daily basis. I never back myself to succeed - regardless of how often I do. "Fake it til you make it" is often great in hindsight, the hindsight only coming after you "make it". Until then, you are still firmly in the "fake it" basket with no guarantee that you'll ever graduate to the "make it".

    The less you speak the more your words will weigh. Silence is golden and duct tape is silver. Also, staying silent doesn't necessarily mean that you are confident or unconfident. Silence and confidence don't really have to relate to each other. But at the same time, they can. I also firmly believe that silence can be a characteristic of an individual who is practicing self control. Or perhaps they could be a silent weirdo? That's not always the case though. If you are indeed a silent person, I am not going to assume that you are a silent weirdo (no one should assume that). Also, if someone thinks that you are a silent weirdo, then do not worry about what they think of you. If you worry about what people think of you, then that means that you are lacking in confidence and are insecure. Practicing self control over your thoughts, emotions, words and actions can be a great form of self discipline and discipline can give you confidence. Those who have self control, will have control over their tongue. Which means that they will speak only when it is necessary, or if they are spoken to first and engaged into a conversation. A thought can cause an action. A thought can cause a word. A thought can cause an emotion, the emotion then causes a word and or an action. Gain control over your thoughts. This will reduce stress, fear, anxiety, and worry. If you master self control, then I guarantee you that you will gain confidence. I'm sure that by now you have realized that confidence should not be gained through self image, ego, and vanity. It should only be found within. Through self control and discipline. You can not only gain confidence from these two things, but also humility. Silence can also be a sign of humility and prudence. Those who are silent can spend more time to think before they speak, so that their words will be more meaningful. And if you are regularly interrupted during conversations you must become the bigger person, by remaining silent, and let that person talk your ear off.

    While i think Tommy Shelby is an fascinating and cool character, i also think it is important to differentiate fiction from reality.
    In Peaky Blinders he knows his place and does things that somehow work wonders and miracles.
    This character has a fictional history and his nature is more than likely purely based on what the creators of the show wanted it to be, so it can be captivating. Who in his right mind would behave like him and get away with it? Everything is pre determined in the show. You're NEVER gonna be either one. You is the only real thing. Not the character Cillian Murphy portrays. Realistically, If you were put under the pressure Tommy has faced, you'd be dead before you realized it. It's like doing an analysis on Scarface. Sure it's fun, interesting and fascinating but not close to the reality of OUR world. This is just my humble opinion. Don't compare yourself to none other than you.
    However, is this a cool analysis of Thomas? Absolutely.

    • J
      J Před měsícem

      That's very true, and more often than not, reality's stranger than fiction. There are some decent points in the video but the reasons why this works so well for a character like tommy is because what you said; it's fiction. If anyone tried acting like this irl that would be too distant, and it'll be obvious if someone's trying to capture a certain fictional character... in the real world. I guess what I'm trying to say is notice some of the points in this video, but also it's okay to be human too. All the way from confidence, to awkward moments.

    Very rarely do people these days experience something in their life that reveals the triviality of most of life's pursuits and the conversations that surround them. That kind of hell sets people free from the fear that grips those still blinded by everything you now see as trivial. You move slower. You think clearer. You see straight through the B.S. You're not impervious. You're just tempered. Tommy's character is tempered.

    Being confident in front of a person holding a gun and trying to eye them down will probably just get you shot in the face. He's a fictional character, set in fictional circumstances, where he's always one step ahead.
    This analysis just reminds me of all the pictures basic people post on Facebook of Tom Hardy smoking cigars, saying something like "The haters think they get to me, I just laugh because I don't even know they exist." Those pictures are like the bumper stickers or the bland t-shirt slogans of the internet. Usually posted by someone screaming at the world between welfare payments.

So far, i've gotten good at becoming non-reactive in situations which make me angry or emotional. It works like a charm. I've also slowed down my movements such as walking. I feel so much confident now when I'm outside or in the market when I'm walking slow. One thing which I'm improving right now is knowing that everything'll be fine which brings about calmness in my demeanor in confidence in my dealings. Thank you man for this gem of a video!

    How should I react if i happen to be around a person i don't want to engage in conversation with? Should I ignore them? Because holding eye contact will make them assume i want to engage in conversation. And how should I interact with my female classmates in my class? I try not to hold contact because it will give an impression that i am interested in them, but this isn't the right time for me to be looking for being into a relationship because i have other priorities with much more importance right now and i cannot afford to mess up. Because this is the turning point of my life and i know that i will get to be around better people and have a better partner once i get there, once I make the best use of my opportunities this year. I am also not the right person to be in a relationship right now because i don't have that confidence.

So my brain is working double time, and THAT'S difficult. You really have to pick you battles if you're looking to emulate this sort of behavior, folks. My two cents.

    I think, the key is acting like a person who have nothing to lose (which will led you to feel like you can do anything you want) and a little bit of 'I don't give a f*ck' kind of behavior. As long as you can control your own mind over something that you fear or feel weak about, then you can do anything confidently, even if you're in unlucky looking situations (for example If you're afraid of ghost just don't think about ghosts are scary or something that make ghosts look inferior than you, instead try to think something about ghosts that make you feel like they're nothing, for example they're not real or you believe that you can overcome one of them and they're nothing compare to you). You can overcome your limit as long as you never stop to try it

    I was once in a situation where my life was threatened. There was no way I could fight my way out of the situation. I was alone. One wrong move and I was potentially dead. I could not run. I could not fight. Basic instinct kicked in and I became “not there”, it was as if I made myself almost invisible. I was still, almost frozen. My lack of reaction to threat saved me. The time that passed, while the threat was deciding what to do saved me. I had 2 minutes where anything could have happened at any moment but it didnt. The minutes passed and I was untouched. Some people who had seen what happened were in shock when the threat left me and they came to speak to me. I couldn’t even really speak but I felt strangely calm. One guy said he was in awe of what he saw he said he was scared and he wasn’t even with me. I went home and didn’t do or say anything. But even though this was nearly 30 years ago I can still recall every detail vividly. It was an intense moment in my life. I think some of the things in this video are kind of human nature in extreme circumstances.
