Lately I've been on a "self-development" kick working to hone my people skills. Those closest to me know that I'm a born introvert, quiet, and have "Ted kaczynski" like seclusion tendencies which over the years has led to my lack of desire to develop this important skill, and my failure to realize just how important it is in one's arsenal of "life skills tool box." And now you know too! (And no...I do not think about blowing people up, but I do think about kicking people in the shins every now and then ;-)
I've always been a quiet, laid back, and introverted personality who often has felt fright, fear, and anxiety when it came to dealing with people, relationships, and being open and communicative. Growing up over the years, I've managed to get by just fine, but the more I mature in life, I'm finding that in order to have a healthy, well, and high quality life, I need to hone my people skills. There's a real quantifiable necessity to learn the art of dealing with people if you want to get ahead, and enjoy life for everything it's worth! So, with that thought in mind, I've been working intently to learn how to communicate with people in various capacities, looking at what makes men and women tick, and taking time to discover the basic drives and instincts of people in general that serves as a means to dictating our behavior and the various dynamics of human interaction.
During the course of my research, I've pulled out two useful books in my library that are phenomenal at distilling tactics, strategies, principles, and underlying behavioral instincts. When understood, these basic concepts can help you tremendously in dealing with people.
I looked at, The Art of Dealing With People, and Skill With People, by Les Giblin. These are two short, but powerful books that has acted as the "Rosetta Stone" for me when it's come to the daunting task of trying to better understand people. They're short, sweet, and to the point. They have served me well in my pursuit to becoming a better companion, father, friend, employee, and all around better person. And I believe you'd benefit greatly from the nuggets of knowledge contained in them, as well as hope you'd find them insightful.
Here's two things that I've learned from these two gems that I think may help you:
In short, if you have parents than you have relationship issues, and it behooves each and everyone of us to learn the art of dealing with people so that we can better our relationships. If you want a healthy, vibrant, and high quality life, than you must learn the skill of investing in people. People are assets. No man is an island, and life can get pretty boring without a tribe to exist in.
