    How to be more likable, tip number 6: listen

    So far, I talked about active steps you can take but one of the easiest way to become more likable is to really in genuinely listen to what other people say. No, if you are just waiting for the other person to finish before you can give your reply, you are not actively listening. Actively listening means that you comprehend what they are saying that you repeat what they are saying and that you later follow up with a question pertaining to it so they really know that you listened and also cared. So always try to paraphrase what people said in a quick way without going into too much detail. You can also have follow-up questions that show that you comprehended what was said and you just keep the conversation going. In general, people like to feel like they are heard and understood and by actively listening, you achieve exactly that. An even bigger step is not just to listen but to act on what someone just said.

    How to be more likable, tip number 3: give out compliments

    Most people think more about themselves than others do think about them, so they may put a lot of effort into a hairstyle, their outfits, or the way they dress but others will not even notice it. So by picking up on something that is special about a person and by complimenting them on it makes you instantly more likable. Why? Well, you actually stand out from the crowd because you noticed something others do not and it flatters the other person and honestly, who does not want to be flattered? That being said, it is best not to comment on body parts or ideally, things that people cannot change anything about. Instead, compliment them on something they do or they did.

    How to dress like Cary Grant guide part 8

    Cary Grant’s thoughts on clothing, number 2, his interview:

    “I’m often asked for advice or an opinion about clothes, and I always try to answer the best I can, but I’m not inclined to regard myself as an authority on the subject. Many times during my years in films, some well-meaning group has selected me as a best-dressed man of the year, but I’ve never understood why. The odd distinction surprises me: first, because I don’t consider myself especially well dressed, and, secondly, I’ve never, as far as I can compare the efforts of others with my own, gone to any special trouble to acquire clothes that could be regarded as noticeably fashionable or up-to-date. Some of my suits are ten to twenty years old, many of them ready-made and reasonably priced. Those that were custom-tailored were made by many different tailors in many different cities: London, Hong Kong, New York, and Los Angeles.

    Cary Grant style, number 5:

    The thing is that he really was not the best actor around. Audiences were just so spellbound by his good looks and sense of style his awkward acting came across as a masculine form of aloofness. In that day and age, men who practiced style the way Grant did were thought to be homosexuals, but somehow, for some reason, many people looked past that with Grant. In that day and age, male stars did not have the luxury of large wardrobes and often had to wear their own clothes. That is one of the reasons they kept casting Grant was because he was elegant a lot. The fourteen-gauge, mid-gray, worsted wool suits he wore in North by Northwest were his own and ones he had personally purchased from tailors on Savile Row.

    Cary Grant style, number 3:

    It was not that his tuxedo was made of the feathers of an eagle or the hair of a unicorn, it was no different from any other man’s dinner jacket, except that Grant ensured his fit him flawlessly and was always perfectly cleaned, crisply ironed and not a strand was out of place. Whether it was a dinner jacket or a pair of jeans, he knew that clothes make the man. Because of his slim figure, he was able to buy clothes off the rack such as trench coats and country clothing. In his early days he would often wear collar pins and knit ties, later he would wear 3-fold ties more often.

    The history of Mr. Cary Grant, number 10:

    Grant was one of the rare few who always put people ahead of himself. It was rare for him to deny an interview, say no to a child wanting an autograph, or pose for a picture with a teary-eyed fan. He was about making others feel more comfortable, possibly because he was never comfortable himself.

    The history of Mr. Cary Grant, number 8:

    His list of films became almost endless as he performed next to starlets such as Katharine Hepburn, Rosalind Russell, Rita Hayworth, Ingrid Bergman, and Irene Dunne. It was not long before every woman in America wanted him and every man wanted to be him. His style, his charm, his wit was unlike the world had seen. His sartorial flair for style was unprecedented and to top it off, he had the natural looks of a superstar. Many argue that men like Fred Astaire had similar traits, but Grant’s physical appearance was unmatched and he became a force in Hollywood. Grant was liked. Both on and off screen he had a natural humbleness and graceful demeanor that made people swoon to him. Alfred Hitchcock once said Grant was “the only actor I ever loved in my whole life”.

    The history of Mr. Cary Grant, number 6:

    A tremendous success at the box office, I’m No Angel was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture which saved Paramount at the time from declaring bankruptcy, but pushed Grant into a long series of unsuccessful film projects until 1936 when he signed with Columbia Pictures. With his comedic timing from his years as an acrobat and stilt walker, he was picked to star in the 1937 comedy Topper which was distributed by MGM. Then The Awful Truth came out that same year which fully established Grant as a sophisticated leading man with a gentle comedic touch. It was rare in a time of masculine enforced male stars, but Grant used his gift of grace as a way to lighten things up and play various roles as opposed to being typecast simply as a good looking man.

    The history of Mr. Cary Grant, number 3:

    The young Leach was so enamored with the American dream and the lifestyle that he refused to return home at the end of the stay. Not having a father or mother who would miss him, he joined the American vaudeville acts and went on tour with Parker, Rand, and Leach. For the first part of his career while on stage, he still performed under the name Archie Leach in shows such as Irene, Music in May, Rio Rita and the Street Singer. His experience with the acrobatic group gave him incredible strength, timing, and grace and it was not long before he would make the trip to Hollywood in the year 1931, playing on Broadway before hitting the big screen.
