I was always a shy person until high school.

That’s when I came across “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. His advice was simple, straightforward, and presented in a compelling way.

I applied it and saw some good results.

But most importantly, it inspired me to read even more books.

After that, I read Napoleon Hill’s books and ended up in the law of attraction rabbit hole.

Fortunately, I quickly realized that LOA is BS so I was like, from now on I’ll be careful about what to read. Just because someone has written a book, doesn’t mean it is worth paying attention to.

Since then I’ve been reading books regularly, usually by psychologists, former FBI agents, social engineers, and sales trainers.

I’ve dedicated a great deal of my time to studying why we behave the way we do and how we can persuade people.

So on this site, you’ll find many in-depth guides where I give practical advice on persuading people and staying calm in difficult situations.

Now, if you want to learn more, I recommend checking out my work on other platforms.


I created r/PersuasionExperts to find resources and have discussions that can help us become more persuasive.

You can also search via a topic in the sidebar.

Here are some of my best posts:


I have written 98 answers on Quora, mostly about psychology tips and tricks.

Here are my best answers:


On my channel, I create videos on using psychology to our advantage.

I also cover how Machiavellians manipulate people so that we can recognize their tactics and protect ourselves from them. I’ve created a dedicated page for my best videos.


We all tend to learn the hard way which person has good intentions towards us and who’s a snake.

It’s a similar thing to books. When seeking a self-improvement book, it usually takes a lot of trial and error to identify those that are truly helpful.

So I’ve created a notion page with books that I think are worth your time.

Thank you for reading.
