How do we create a favourable and lasting impression when meeting a stranger and trying to make friends with him? The first step is to know one simple amazing secret, and that is, everyone has needs and desires which must be fulfilled. If you know what another person wants most of all and can give it to him, this person will be your friend for life. This invaluable knowledge about another person’s desires and needs is the leverage you will need to gain complete and absolute mastery over anyone you come across. There is no need to be a psychologist or a psychiatrist to be able to make friends easily.
How do we find out the wants and desires of the people we meet? It is easy when we realize that people say and do things because they have certain motives, deep desires or needs that must be fulfilled. All their speeches or actions are aimed at achieving them. Besides pure physical needs like food, rest, sex, some needs are acquired as a person grows and matures as he learns to covet what is regarded as valuable by others; like a big house, designer clothing, bigger cars etc. Over time, these desires would become acquired as well.
The following is a compiled list, in no particular order, of things that any normal person want to be, to have or to do.
