Stop People Pleasing

Stop People Pleasing

Patrick King

Overview

We live in an increasingly agreeable world. Simply saying 'no' often becomes an insurmountable obstacle. In such an atmosphere, a lot of people are ready to go out of their ways just to maintain the social status quo, being a good person to everyone but without having any genuine friendships.

Patrick King, a social interaction specialist, shows us why real social bonds don't have anything to do with people-pleasing, and why being a people-pleaser actually makes it harder to establish real friendships.

King offers advice on dating, communication skills, and personal image, both via his consulting business and the numerous books he's written – Read People Like a Book, How to Say No, and The Science of Overcoming Procrastination.

Favorite Quote

"A people-pleaser is worried about rejection. They have a need, as we all do, to be accepted and treasured. But in people-pleasers, this need is amplified to the extent that they will bend over backward so as not to lose that love or acceptance."

Patrick King
