Communication - Episode 3 | The Social Chameleon
This Episodes Topic Is Communication. We'll be talking about Language & Communication and giving our insight into questions like;
- What do you mean by language? Not a spoken language, but verbiage of words
- How does the power of words affect our beliefs and habits?
- Why is communicating properly important?
And much more.
As a human behavior investigator, Vanessa Van Edwards studies the hidden forces that drive our behavior patterns in her lab - and she's cracked the code. In Captivate she shares a wealth of valuable shortcuts, systems, and behavior hacks for taking charge of interactions at work, at home, and in any social situation. These aren't the people skills you learned in school. This is the first comprehensive, science-backed, real-life manual on human behavior and a completely new approach to building connections.
Just like knowing the right formulas to use in chemistry or the right programming language to write code, the hacks in this book are simple ways to solve for people. For example:
The Social Game Plan: every party, networking event, and social situation has a predictable map - discover how to work a room and the sweet spot for making the most connections.
The Seven Microexpressions: learn how to speed-read the seven universal facial expressions and how they can be used to predict people's emotions.
Conversation Sparks: all conversations can be hacked - if you know how certain words generate dopamine in the people you meet.
When you understand the laws of human behavior, you can get along with anyone, and your influence, impact, and income will increase as a result. What's more, you will improve your interpersonal intelligence, make a killer first impression, and build rapport quickly and authentically in any situation - negotiations, interviews, parties, and pitches. You will never interact in the same way again.

For example, the program gives you specific ways to:
- Get the best possible price when you buy or sell a house, a car, a business, real estate, or any negotiable item.
- Get a raise or promotion.
- Keep employees happy without giving in to unreasonable demands.

I'm Dan Wendler, and I wrote this book because I believe everyone deserves a place to belong, and I didn't want poor social skills to hold anyone back from friendship and community - even if they struggle with social skills.
I know firsthand how hard it is to struggle socially. Growing up I was bullied, harassed, and excluded - no matter how hard I tried to fit in. It wasn't until I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome that I put the puzzle pieces together. I realized I struggled socially because I didn't have any social skills. And just like any other skill, social skills can be learned.
The guide you're about to hear is a compilation of the social principles I've learned during my lifetime of personal social skills study, as well as the techniques I developed while offering hundreds of hours of social skills coaching. These principles led me to a life full of close friendship and satisfying connection
I believe that you, too can live a life full to the brim with friendship, connection, and love. I hope that after listening to Improve Your Social Skills, you'll believe it too.
