Studies have shown that these subtle tricks can help the other person feel socially comfortable around you even if they've just met you.
While it is impossible to please everybody, being seen as a generally likable, pleasant person has many professional and social benefits. They range from having more career opportunities in the work place to simply having a more enriching life full of lasting friendships and interesting conversations with strangers you may never see again.
