Summary

Scientifically-proven methods to create connection with anyone you meet. This is your blueprint for social success.

Humans are unpredictable...or are we? Through decades of research, scientists have shown consistent patterns in human behavior and thought that can lead you us to very predictable outcomes. In other words, there are genuine ways to forge better relationships that take advantage of human psychology and behavioral patterns.

Learn the elements of magnetic charisma.

In The Science of Social Intelligence, you'll have over 30 studies, new and old, broken down in a way that answers the question, "How can I use this science in my everyday life?" Rely on findings from psychology, cognitive science, and behavioral economics, rather than one person's anecdotal advice of what works.

Learn why conventional "small talk" advice is flat-out wrong.

This book is a truly in-depth look at the concept of being socially intelligent, maximizing the social opportunities you are given, and leveraging your unique strengths to have the relationships you want. In a time where most advice takes the form of "make more eye contact" and "smile more", this book stands out.

Learn how to make a powerful first impression.

The Science of Social Intelligence pairs the raw human behavioral data and findings with the insight and emotional intelligence of Patrick King, sought-after social skills coach and internationally best-selling author. The result is half textbook, half field guide for whatever your social goals may be.

Understand what makes people tick (even if they don't).

  • What popularity in high school really requires.
  • The true psychology of being positive.
  • The two way street of perception and how it impacts your relationships.

Be likable without appearing manipulative.

  • The three things everyone wants to talk about (as well as what to always avoid).
  • How to be emotionally calibrated and attuned to people.
  • The toxic habits you need to break for social success.

Good for the beginner only.

This is quite basic if you’ve studied anything in people skills and personal development. Definitely beginners level. I read Dale Carnegie’s how to Win friends and influence people 30 years ago and this had nothing to add to that.

That being said, I’ve listened to some of Patrick’s other books and they offer a lot of great advice on impromptu techniques and witty banter. Skip to those is my advice.

this book would be very useful

for someone who is just getting into social intelligence and learning different aspect of social interactions. if you already understand and utilize the basics of socializing and being social, there isn't much to take away from it.

Great relatable examples & personalized tools!

This book made so much sense to me. Many examples and subjects in this book connected to my own life. I have much more understanding about how to and not to socialize. Healthy vs Unhealthy behaviors. Social cues ro make me more personable. Very happy I read this!

I learned nothing 50 minutes in!

This book is seriously just not for me. Maybe if I lasted a bit longer in listening to the book maybe I would have learned something but I can't torture myself anymore. I couldn't even get through the book due to the fact that it was so bland. What this book basically does is simply spit out common sense and follow it up with a bunch of percentages from a study to further validate his 1+1=2 argument. If you buy this book please don't expect on learning anything ground breaking. The book even starts off with him telling a story about him being rude to a cashier and surprise, surprise she was rude back. Hope this gives you an idea of what you're getting into.

Ministry of Social Affairs, Made Easy

If you were not born a sociable person, do not despair.
By reading this book, you will learn that socialising is no rocket science: It is pretty simple, common sense, and mostly painless.
You will wonder why you never realized this before!

This book is worth the read

I have enjoyed all of Patrick King's books so far. A good and thourough writer on the subject matter. I have gained a lot insight from this book in particular as it has cast some light on what goes right or wrong in relationships between people. I have a better understanding of people and social encounters. A quick summary is you get what you give be that good or bad. We often don't realize the signals and messages that we send out. This book tells and teaches you what and how to give. Very enlightening. An excellent book. Well done.
