To help you figure out how to do this, we looked at the answers posted on Quora in response to the question, " How do I become more memorable when meeting someone for the first time?
Here were some of our favorite tips for making yourself memorable when you first meet someone new:. Julian Reisingera Quora user and co-founder of Lovelifesolved. Most people avoid saying anything controversial — especially when meeting someone for the first time — because they want to play it safe to ensure everyone likes them.
But if you really want to be memorable, you may want to make a statement — without insulting anyone or saying something offensive, of course. That doesn't mean you have to be an outlier, but by speaking your mind firmly and clearly and having an opinion, you will become more interesting and as a result more memorable, he writes.
Breaking out of the cultural norm is an easy way to stick out, Reisinger writesbut try to stick out in a positive way. For example, he suggests coming up with humorous and unique answers to the typical introductory questions such as "How are you? While coming up with scripted answers may seem like a pain, he points out that you will have to answer these questions thousands of times throughout your life anyway, so it's well worth the effort.
Rob Rikerthe founder of The Social Winner blog, says confident body language does more than make you look good — it helps you make a great first impression.
To do this, Riker suggests suggests having a firm handshake, standing up straight, and maintaining eye contact both while listening and speaking. If you aren't talking with anyone for a few minutes, then he says you should look out in front of you, rather than at the ground.
He also says you should "own the space around you. This piece of advice from Reisinger stems from author and poet Maya Angelou's famous quote: "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. In order to leave a deep impression on someone, you need to make them feel something, and preferably something good. How do you do that in a casual conversation? Reisenger suggests showing vulnerability, making other people laugh, making a mistake and apologizing for it, stroking someone's ego, telling stories, being helpful, or discussing a topic in a heated manner.
Journalist Becky Blanton says the the most important thing in being memorable is learning to listen. Like Reisinger and Angelou, Blanton says that we remember how people make us feel, and "nothing makes us feel warmer, better, loved or important than having the authentic and focused attention of someone else.
Smiling also triggers the other person's mirror neurons which produce the feeling that their own smile would provide — a happy feeling! It tells them you were paying attention and that you care. Riker suggests putting more energy into seeing the positive side of things rather than the negative. For example, you can say,"'Oh, I love that it's cold because now I get to bundle up and really enjoy a warm cup of coffee,' rather than complaining that it's cold.
