Summary

What does landing your dream girl/guy and closing a million-dollar business deal have in common? They both require social intelligence, and massive amounts of it. It's no longer a secret - a person's ability to develop powerful relationships, communicate effectively, and say the right thing at the right moment is key if they want to make it in life.

What does "making it" entail?

Well, you name it; it could mean finding a spouse, landing your dream job, closing a business deal - it could even mean getting your lazy friend to travel with you to South America. The problem resides in developing these skills when you're a natural introvert or have a severe case of social anxiety. I was one of these cases and struggled a lot because of it.

During work meetings, everyone emphatically contributed ideas for improvement while I held back from chipping in, afraid no one would take me seriously. I could never get past small talk with the opposite sex. I simply lacked the social fluidity to transition plain interactions into meaningful conversations.

In social events, approaching others felt like a nightmare. I was dazed and felt the need of a blueprint for knowing how to start a conversation and connect with others (which I didn't have). I had to work hard on myself and push myself for many years to get past my social shortcomings and finally develop the thriving social life I enjoy today.

However, it doesn't have to be the same for you. In Social Intelligence for the Socially Awkward, I have compiled the resources necessary to begin developing your social IQ today!

In this audiobook, you will:

  • Discover genuine strategies for making genuine friends. Apply a simple trick used by the likes of public figures to never run out of things to say.
  • Finally take control of your speech apparatus and communicate the way you've always wanted to.
  • Discover secret covert influence techniques you can apply today to get your way in social scenarios.
  • Discover a simple technique, used by the best stand-up comedians, to get out of their head and project themselves in front of crowds.
  • Learn techniques used by dating coaches to communicate in a polarizing way to the opposite sex (and double your dating in the process).

If you're ready to grow your social IQ and your social life like never before, click the 'add to cart' button and get your copy of this audiobook today!

Social Intelligence

He spends a lot of time explaining how these social connections are learned as a child and how what we do or don't learn when we are young affects us later. As a mom with a new baby, some of the experiments were actually scary! He talked about how some moms can naturally tell when their babies need a break and leave them alone for a while and how others continue to "get in their face" and how this changes how the baby interacts with people as an adult!

This was a great book.

This book is an eye-opener, particularly for those of us who have embraced the digital world either voluntarily or reluctantly. The digital age is here to stay, and this book is a valuable resource in helping us to understand it's relative cost and gains, and how important it is to reduce the associated, but avoidable personal isolation

9 This was a great book.

This book is an absolutely fantastic exposition of human behavior:how to understand our natural tendencies and, with those tendencies in mind, how to work with others in such a way as to optimize our mutual happiness. A must-listen for any leader or anyone wanting to improve the quality of their relationships.

Wonderful audio book

This book (audio version) really tracks how and why EQ is neurally connected in the human mind. This provides more then I will ever know on human behaviors. Recommend to listen several times to realise the wealth of information provided. A great resource book for training, research and general interest.

The book itself was well written and excellent, but it was used and not in very good shape. Somewhat bent and had someone's underlining in the first bit.

Informative book.

Don't hesitate, this is a terrific book on Audio. It really calmed me down to listen to this while coming and going to work each day. The voice of the person listening is perfect for this type of book. I learned a great deal from listening to this. This book came highly recommended and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I'll definitely get more this way!

Very helpful and useful audio.

the two texts go hand in hand. social intelligence as the sub title says goes beyond IQ, and beyond Emotional intelligence and reconfirms material found in emotional intelligence...terrific double play

So great and filled with useful info

it covers most assets of the social human brain in great detail and - no doubt - with enough medical and neurological research to back it up, it is a tough one to listen. I found myself struggling through chapters to keep focussed, but after listening it highly motivated with the new knowledge that was acquired.

This was a great book.

This book is fantastic! It explains SO many of the things that go on around us with our friends, family and fellow citizens around us. Why someone is unsure of themselves, how kids get programmed, how parenting in various ways affects the children etc etc

Fantastic helpful book.

Love this book being that i'm a big psychology fan. It definitely opened up my eyes to the science of mannerism and the communication also being expressed by the subconscious body language.
