The strategy to win friends and influence people is always intriguing. But, as you know, the basic rules of getting people are not to criticize, condemn, or complain.
In addition, giving honesty and appreciation can deliver a good impression on others.
Lastly, How much time do you spend with someone? It depends on your interest in somebody. If you want, you may start a conversation with a topic—other’s interest, not your concern.
However, relationships with people are not always pleasant. When someone gets angry and tries arguing, others should avoid it or listen to it. That is wisdom to keep the relationship.
