Looking To Be More Likeable? Start By Ditching The “Golden Rule”
Michael Thompson

All correct, including the comments. In my experience, the most important is, appropriately, number One. It is a cliché from self-help books to romance novels, but, like most, founded in truth: If you give your interlocutor the feeling that they’re the most interesting person in the room, or even the only person, for the few minutes or however long your talk lasts, you’ve well on your way to making a friend. Bonus if you make them laugh, no matter on what.
