One Simple (But Counter-Intuitive) Likability Hack
Max Albert

Great theory. Humbling — encouraging the person being asked for a favor to feel like a problem solver. Opening the opportunity for a co-dependent relationship perhaps, allowing the reciprocate to feel more able to ask for favors in turn? Important to take into consideration the person’s temperament as well — a bad day affecting their response. Interesting to see whether this could improve a person’s day by making them feel altruistic, but I like the idea empowerment.
Thanks for the read. Cheers!
