Publisher's 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.

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.

Informative but very limited and not uplifting

Lots of useful information but in my view quite a bit doesn't make sense. for example the study that relies on cell phone usage to demonstrate that we all have three very close friends at one time and that it's destined to be that way. sure we will all probably top out at 3 very close friends, but the point made by the author completely ignores the likelihood that many people have less than three close friends.

research shows that around 30% of the entire population is lonely at any one instant. that doesn't seem at all consistent with the idea that we have three very close non-family friends, whether we try to have them or not.

a large chunk of the population does not use a cell phone as primary means of communication, so I would think that makes it a very unreliable medium.

to say that we all have 3 very close friends at one time seems way off base. A study in 1985 show the average number was 3. A follow-up study in 2004 showed that 37% had three or more.

regarding the advice that you only keep friends who reciprocate with you seems naive. I honestly don't know anyone who can brag of a friend that reciprocates or with them reciprocate fairly. I'd guess that relationships are more imbalanced in which one person needs the other enough to be accommodating while the recipient appreciates the accommodation and accepts the new friend.

the book completely ignores the idea that people judge other people at first glance based on things like age, color of skin, height and weight, etc. this means many people start off with an enormous handicap.

how about the proximity rule of friendship? in effect, the best friend you will ever have is your next door neighbor.

how about the idea that too get someone to like you, you almost always only have to like them?

the book felt mostly informative but not really uplifting, which I guess should be it's primary purpose.

Good book

The book was a good ready with some interesting but dated studies. is definitely worth the read but very similar to other Patrick King books especially "The Science of Likeability."
