One of the best psychological tricks and characteristics of an attractive person is that they listen attentively to you which many people don’t do. Most people don’t listen and instead they only want to speak of themselves and share their own news. It is always a good feeling when you tell a story and see that everyone is paying attention to you and even emotionally reacting to your word. Charming people also listen and love to do so rather than always talking. This helps people learn more interesting things about others to find a common factor.
