12 Tricks That Will Make People Respect You More

My task for you before you continue reading:

As you can see by the comments below this article, the methods listed here are powerful. Try to choose one of the principles listed below and focus on improving that. If you can improve in just ONE of these areas, you will notice significant changes in how people treat you.

Part 1: Becoming more respected by others

1. Admit when you’re wrong and be humble about your mistakes

I remember a friend in college, Fredrik. We were usually studying in a group after class. Whenever he was wrong about something, he immediately said: “You’re right. I agree.”

He really meant it, too. You could hear it in his voice.

I was so humbled and impressed by his ability to accept his mistakes and move on from it.

Whenever he was talking, everyone listened. I think he was probably the most respected person in our group of friends. And he was also the most humble and mature of us all, by far.

I learned a lot from him and I always respected him deeply. He was humble, warm and incredibly competent.

2. Don’t apologize when you’ve done nothing wrong

Don’t apologize for your mere presence, for stating your opinion, or for disagreeing. You don’t need to apologize if you don’t want to do something.

Still, when you are in the wrong, take responsibility and apologize like we talked about in the previous point. Just avoid apologizing for nothing.

3. Present yourself respectably

Dress well according to the situation. Clean, well-fitting clothes go a long way. While you don’t have to blow through your bank account to do this, it’s important to dress the part.

Practice good grooming habits. Make sure you smell well, take care of your hair, teeth, and nails. Show that you care about how you present yourself.

We can complain about a superficial world all we want, but at the end of the day, we just need to play the game and make sure to dress the part. On a positive note, this is one of the easiest things to improve ourselves.

4. Don’t let your emotions get the best of you

To earn respect, you must be willing to remain calm and collected regardless of the situation. If you lose your cool and allow emotions to take over, it will be much more difficult for others to view you in a positive light. Instead, follow these characteristics of an outgoing person:

  • You shouldn’t react emotionally when you are in a discussion or an argument. A respected person knows to keep their cool when others cannot. While another person may raise their voice to place emphasis on a point to accuse you of something, you respond in a calm manner. When you do so, you can defuse the intense situation and earn the respect of others.
  • You should also remain calm in tense situations. For example, say your work environment is stressful. Given this environment, it would be easy for you to lose your cool. However, by maintaining a level head, speaking in a calm voice and not allowing emotion to take over, you show command over the situation. This will attract others to you because they see leadership qualities in you. You will be like a stable rock where they can find their direction.

5. Show that you are a leader

People will listen and follow others whom they respect. With this in mind, by showing natural leadership tendencies, it will make it easy for you to earn the respect of others. Here are some great leadership qualities to have:

  • You possess great communication skills. This means you have the innate ability to speak to others on a wide variety of topics. Further, you are able to engage the listener with your words. To accomplish this, you should refrain from telling dirty jokes, using poor language such as cuss words or yelling. Instead, you are warm, friendly and speak with knowledge on the conversation topic. Furthermore, leaders don’t speak with uncertainty by using words such as “ehhm”. They also don’t try to end awkward silences with filler material. They are confident no matter what the situation entails.
  • Another trait leaders share is in their body language. To be a good leader, you walk with an upright posture, establish confident eye contact with those you speak to and maintain a steady voice throughout the conversation. By doing this, you attract others with your personality and confidence. Conversely, if you speak quietly with your shoulders huddled and you look down at your shoes, people will perceive you as shy. It is much harder for people to express confidence in you if you don’t have confidence in yourself.

Overall, leaders exhibit these skills naturally. This means they don’t try to act confident, they just are. Now, this may take years of experience to master for you. It did for me.However, when I started taking the time to speak to others and practice these communication skills, I was amazed at how much confidence I gained. It also had an effect on those around me, as I noticed they would ask for my feedback on certain topics. Even if you have to take baby steps to improve your communication skills such as watching yourself in the mirror while speaking or recording a conversation, it’s a good first step towards gaining confidence.

6. You are a problem solver

One of the best ways to earn the respect of your peers is to master the art of problem-solving. Here is a guide to help you with this:

  • When a problem occurs, you don’t react emotionally to it. For example, say you are on a trip with a group of coworkers and you try to check into a hotel and they don’t have your reservations. Certainly, this would be a frustrating problem to encounter, but in this case, you don’t complain about the problem. Instead, you deal with it and make sure you fix your reservations in the best way possible.
  • You address the problem head-on. In this example, show the attendant your work’s travel itinerary if applicable. Another solution could be to call whoever made the arrangements to see what they can do. The goal here is to find action steps to solve your problems instead of complaining to the attendant about it.
  • Along with solving the problem, you are diplomatic in your responses. Even if the attendant is rude or unhelpful, you take the high road. You treat them with respect and you work together to find a solution. By doing this, you show your coworkers you are in control of the situation, which can earn their respect.

7. Earn respect by giving it

As you develop confidence, it’s important that you remain humble.

There’s nothing more unattractive to others than if you act arrogantly. Instead, treat others with kindness even if they won’t do the same for you.

When you treat others with respect, some will appreciate the kindness you show and may respond in kind. While you won’t be able to please everyone, by being nice to all you will gain respect from some of your peers. Of course, you still need to keep clear boundaries when people are disrespectful.

8. Keep your word

The easiest way to lose respect is to say you’ll do something and don’t follow through on it. If you want respect, you must show that you are dependable. When you commit to meetings or obligations, be sure to follow through on them. When you become someone that others can count on, it is then that you earn their respect.

9. Set clear boundaries

What if people take you for granted? What do you do when someone disrespects you? What if someone is rude or mean towards you or someone else? This situations or patterns when you may need to set your boundaries.  – So how do you do set your boundaries? Follow these steps.

  1. Identify and define your boundary in the relevant situation.
  2. Use non-emotional language to tell the other person they stepped over your boundary. “When you do X, I feel Y, can you do Z instead?”
  3. Listen to their point of view.

For example, say you asked someone a question and they rudely say “F*** off”. First, ask yourself, is this something I’m willing to put up with? If the answer is no, go on and tell them what they did wasn’t ok.

The most effective way to do this is to say it like this: “When you say that to me, it makes me feel disrespected, can you answer my question seriously instead?” Then you can listen to how they respond and see if you can come to an understanding.

I highly recommend reading and practicing this type of communication, it’s called I-statements or I-messages: It’s a very effective type of communication in (close) relationships.

 – What if the other person doesn’t listen? This usually works if you both have some sort of relationship with each other that you both value in one way or another. It can be your partner, friend, mother, father or someone else. If they are motivated to have a functioning relationship with you, they will probably listen sooner or later. But if the other person isn’t interested in a healthy relationship with you, for example, a random stranger. This method is more of a throw of the dice, they might listen or they might not. That’s when you walk away. Why waste your time on them?

Part 2: Common mistakes when trying to get respect

10.  Showing you’re smarter than others

We’ve all seen it. People trying to prove they’re smarter by being a know-it-all, saying you’re wrong about something or correcting your pronunciation.

Have you ever respected someone for being like that? Neither have I, but it’s still such an easy trap to fall into. We think that if we prove how smart we are, people will like and respect us. But instead, people are just irritated and annoyed.

11. Showing you’re richer or have something others don’t

Some people respect money, but most people don’t. All you get is that people will either be envious of you or they will think you seem desperate and needy trying to flaunt your wealth.

Neither will get you respect.One thing that might is being generous with your money – buy your friends or coworkers a nice treat from time to time. But be careful of making a habit out of paying for stuff, that will only make people see you as an ATM.

You want them to value and respect you for more than your assets. You want to be generous with your money – by for example buying your friends or coworkers a nice treat from time to time. But when you do, do it in a way so that it’s a pleasant surprise rather than something they get used to.

12. When getting respect turns bad

This probably doesn’t apply to you. But if it does, it’s important.

  • Trying to intimidate people.
  • Making fun of others
  • Teasing someone too much
  • Belittling others
  • Being mean

You might get some “respect” for the moment but at the cost of your relationships.

People will try to avoid you at any cost. Because these behaviors make people feel bad about themselves. Why would anyone want to be close to someone who makes them feel scared and insecure? If you want people to respect AND like you, make them feel secure and good about themselves when they are with you. Support and encourage your friends and partner when they need it, protect and stand up for them. That’s how you get deep, lasting respect from people.

You can get superhero levels of respect. There’s no magic involved. It all comes down to the fundamental principles listed above. To really motivate you, I want you to show you what respect can mean to your life.

How more respect affects different areas of your life

Respect with your friends:

You are the first person to be invited to any happenings in your social circle. Your friends seek your approval because they see you as an informal leader of the group. People love hanging out with you because you are confident in yourself but still warm and fun to be with.

Respect at your workplace:

You get a promotion at work because your boss trusts in your competence and he knows your colleagues listen to you. You like that people ask for your opinion before making a big decision. You know how to set clear boundaries and people respect your time.

Respect in your relationship:

Your partner sees you as an equal and you have a deep mutual respect towards each other. You can be open about your deepest secrets and talk about anything. Your relationship gives you a stable place to always return and recharge your energy. And when you’re up for it, you can always go on an adventure together.

Respect from friends and family:

You are always welcome. They love and support you, they are grateful when you visit. You’d do anything for them and they’d do anything for you.

What if your friends don’t take you seriously or don’t listen to you? What if they tease you too much?

The above principles are powerful, but depending on your situation, you may need to do something more drastic to break the pattern.

Sometimes we get “stuck” in a role that you don’t want to be in. Especially in a social circle of friends and it can be hard to break out of it.

I think the most important principle is to learn how to set boundaries like we talked about in principle number 9. I would also recommend this guide to deal with being teased by your friends.

Ultimately, earning respect means you naturally convey confidence and leadership qualities. You don’t allow emotions to control the situation. Instead, you control it. Further, you are willing to earn respect by being kind to others and be dependable. When you develop these qualities, you will naturally and effortlessly earn the respect of others.

    I even have a problem of my friends..I m a 1st year BDS student..and frnds I have got… Are nice they re good..but they don’t respect me..always ignore me…never listen to my talks…always make fun of me…behind me…i get very much frustrated.! Help me to get out.. I want to make others respect me !

  2. Karen

    I genuinely do no. 1 with my teenagers and my son has told me that it makes it easier for him to forgive me when I own my shit. My kids know they can openly talk to me and call me on my shit too. The only drawback is, I need to practice on not reacting emotionally. I have hard time with that one.

    One little side note to the author: on #10, the last paragraph is repeated from the one before it. Just letting you know of the typo. 🙂

    I Like This Article Very Well. Once One Is Practising, One Is Hopeful Of Perfection. This Article Is Helpful. My Advice Is That People Should Try All Possible Ways To Be Respected In The Society.

  5. Anonymous

    Sorry but this article is NOT true.
    You canNOT control if someone respects you.

    You can only live your life, and try your best to be a good person, and pray to God. If someone respects you is NOT in your control. You canNOT control that.
    How do you control someone else’s behavior??? This is impossible.

    You do everything correct and sometimes people will disrespect you more. Why? Because of envy and jealousy. Respect is not something you can “earn”. It’s a big lie.

    • Viktor Sander

      I disagree.

      For example, there was a user who wrote a mean-spirited comment to another user on this blog (which I deleted). That behavior made me lose respect for them.

      How you decide to live your life and treat others will affect what you get back. Not always, but most often.

    • John Raymond

      I disagree
      You can control how others view you.
      The way you respect your pastor and a theif are not the same.
      Because of their behaviour, you view them differently.
      If your pastor becomes a theif you’ll no longer respect him.
      So this is a great article.
      Thanks for writing

      That means you just lied to yourself
      Tell me, how can you change a fighter into a calm person if you fight back at every little thing they do? Tell me how you calm you partner down when they are wrong and believe they are right to tell them they are wrong by forcefully imposing the truth in them? If you can answer this questions correctly, then you can answer if you can or cannot cause people to respect you. Thanks

    • Dee

      To Anonymous, THANK YOU!!! That is sooooo true. You can’t make someone respect you even if you’ve done everything on this list. I know; tried every one on this list and still get disrespected.

    • Charlie

      This last comment illustrates the need for reasoned thought and emotional calmness. To enforce their opinion they capitalized “NOT.” Was this is ensure that this word was not missed, or to blast an opinion as something that could not be challenged.

      I suspect same people will make many mistakes in life and assume the whole world is wrong. As we grow and learn emotionally we learn the whole word is often nothing more than the mirror we see of ourselves.

      Bullying the innocent and truly bad people do exist.

      However, we need to recognize the difference between the honest feedback from others from the ignorance of a few.

    This is a great article. You’re right, trying to change everything at the same time is too much to deal with, so going through it step by step is a great solution. In my opinion it all comes down to self-respect as a starting point and people who genuinely believe in your success and support you regardless of your flaws.

  7. Anonymous

    Don’t do things to devalue your authenticity e.g. Don’t do stupid things on social media, or devalue someone else opinion and believes just because they are not the same as your own. Keep high morals and avoid making mistakes in the sense of morals .Be an inspiration towards others instead of the guy who nobody wants to be associated with because of his poor life decisions.

    • Viktor Sander

      I like that, integrity! Maybe I should add one more principle to explain that in more depth and how you can increase your integrity?

      • Geneva

        I would say integrity is one of the fundamental qualities that people respect you for. Even if you’re not the nicest, if you always do the right thing, people will respect you 100% even if they don’t like you.

    • Teabag

      I found this very helpful. You tend to get disrespect from society when you hold strong convictions on subjects that differ from the rest.

  8. Sneha

    No one take me seriously just because i crack jokes evry time the reason is I dose’nt want to create tense situtation but no one understand my veiw not family nor my friend respect me for them i m nothing more then a joke so pls tell how should i deal with it

    • Prabhu

      Sneha,I also faced the same situation but slowly after introspection I understood where I went wrong.Nowdays I have started giving back to people who make incessant fun and don’t take it seriously and I practice with the choice of words where it will hurt them so that they realise.i practice this in the bathroom while taking shower imagining they are in font of me .This has worked out for me for sure.I wish you all the luck in developing your personality.

      Please note that I am also developing but it is a tip I am sharing with you based on my realization and how I coped with the situation

      Let me now if I can be of any help to you

    hi.. I think I’ve lost my respect because majority of the times I’m joking around even in serious occasions and that is solely because I have that jolly personality … like I want to overcome this habit nut unintentionally I crack a joke… also I’ve noticed I am a chatter box and tend to be easily share my thoughts with strangers whom I’ve just met .. like I fail to keep a distance also I’m not committed to my words sometimes I’m a student female… I also think some no many people get jealous of me either from my appearance or what … I don’t get some people like some of them I’ve never talked or so also tend to dislike me. I was once very confident but after getting into university my confidence level has dropped too … this article is good and I really would like to follow it

    • Viktor Sander

      Thanks for sharing! Glad you liked the article, I recommend you start with one principle and focus on that to start. With your self-insight, I think you can improve a lot!

  10. Chris

    The article is good but unfortunately no one lives up to those standards. We are all humans,full of flaws and idiosyncrasies. I think good people try their best to follow the examples mentioned, but inevitably we all fail sooner or later. For example, I think most people want to stay cool, calm and collective during an argument but unfortunately things happen that sometimes we ourselves can’t control. We are not robots. I respect people not solely based on the qualities mentioned, but on what is in their heart, mind and most importantly, honesty and if they have good morals.

    • Viktor Sander

      I agree Chris, we can never be perfect and neither should we expect perfection from others. That’s why at the start of the article I wrote about how you can choose just one principle that you resonate with to focus on, that way it gets more manageable and realistic.

      • Vincent

        While this is a very good article, I tend to agree with Chris. Even born leaders have sometimes lost their cool. The question is “how often do you lose your cool”?

        I happens to be someone people always look up to. I am not the alpha male but people want to see me as such. I have a carriage that makes people curious about me. They want to know what is behind my confidence. And many times people have made several attempts to even see the size of my dick. They have done this sometimes by directly touching me inappropriately at my groin or they follow me to the watch room to look at my dick while I am having a pee. Also, in order to get my attention, some have intentionally belittle me, make fun of me, slight me purposely, use derogatory remarks etc. Unfortunately, that is where I had failed because I lose my cool most times. And you will not blame me given that I am constantly under scrutiny and barrage of verbal attacks.

        While I exhibited most of the qualities mentioned above, I always fail in point 4 (Allowing my emotions to get the best of me). Although, I am conscious of the fact that I should not raise my voice in an argument but I often do not know when I drift apart and lose it with bitter exchange of words.

        The more embarrassing situation happened recently when I had a quarrel with a seemingly insignificant, uneducated and socially unexposed girl that is half my age. To be honest, I lost respect from two or three of my neighbours but because I still have the respect from a large spectrum of my community, I did not feel the impact of the loss of respect. But, I hurt my ego with the incident. In my opinion, the incident was a turning point for me to manage point 4. I learnt a lesson in a bitter way. However, as the saying goes “No pains, No gain” because, ever since the incident, I am more efficient in keeping my cool. I have come to realize that people purposely want to provoke and insult me because of the following reasons:

        They either want to be in my circle of acquaintances and they are not making any head way
        They pale in comparisons with my social status
        They feel I get too much respect from the community
        People always talk good of me and they want to look for means to belittle me publicly
        They hate my guts
        I tend to mine my business all the time and that infuriates them
        They are looking for means to make me loose my ego and carriage

        In any case, I am better equipped now in managing my emotions since I came to the realization that people consider me a person of class and as such many want to intentionally talk negatively of me just to bring me down. I no longer give them the room by responding to their insult or derogatory remarks.

        Thank you very much for this article because it has helped me to see myself.

      Good article. No we cannot control how others feel about us.
      But we can affect how others feel about us. If we respect ourselves, and show respect to others, over time, that gets conveyed…… this article gave good pointers as to how to not overreact and how to come from a place of integrity, no matter what is coming at us. Then there are those who out of habitual behavior, will never show us respect. And its best to recognize that, not take it personally, and go on being an ‘example’ of integrity, yes making mistakes also. And saying ‘sorry I was wrong’.

      Find different friends immediately. One second more of time spent around them conveys you are willing to accept their behavior. Treat them as if they are a gray rock on the side of the road by passing them by and ignoring their existence. They want to get a reaction out of you. You can tell your older friend it was nice knowing her but you don’t play that way. If the harassment continues, immediately tell your parents and teacher.

      Hit them back very hard and tell her to get off of you if she starts violence with you first. Otherwise, you have no reason to fear anyone.

    Mr.David it was really wonderful in going through your lines.Actually i don’t know whether this reply will be read by u personally. But i feel that these r one of the most important lines that I have gone through in my life…. I have started to practice them from today itself and I’m confident that these will work…
    But do u think these would work against people who intend to show u inferior.
    I mean I’m 18 years old and my relatives try to prove everything i do as wrong … will these tips help me sir..or do u have something in stock for that tooo…
    I’m expecting to hear from u people..

  26. Im relatively a good nured person and base my life strict on respect and character. Im a big giver by heart wanting nothing back. I tend to find people take me for granted and can bé nasty to me for no reasons and I dont like it sometimes I ignore other times I talk against it to let them seem the disadvantages of it. Im always undermind inspite of my achievements and great associations by people who have and are far less than me. People dont take me seriously yet I do for the benefit of me growth. I like to evaluate myself for growth and for me to bé a better person. I dont conflict and compromise good ethics but I tend to bé. Hurt by people so often, get into ugly arguments that are not even constructive and most time common with vulgar and when vulgar and slander to me I could retaliate in the same way shutting everyone off and its when they still and I hateeeeeee this I dont want to bé defensive in this way in fact not at all I understand that life is not a bed of roses but if in a dispute let it bé respectful hence I remove myself from such people. I tend to dislike people who treat me bad for a while and then forgive but dont go down that road again. I also love people but kind and respectful people who treat me well. I prefer animals and nature to rude people. Im a Christian and believe in what the word teaches and I aspire to bé that hence I constantly check myself and make changes for me not people. I hate it when I get dragged or treated rudely when I dont give to people this and when its too much I retakiate. I also try to make myself. Clear but not heard. Most times its from family, neighbours, workplace, seldom on the street. I dont have friends but associates of profound interest and this behaviour is not good for my image. Im hurting. When Im in a place and around people I aspire to bé and amb as myself Im fine and come out refreshed and get emotional that people are good just some and I question why are they nasty when life can bé good. I dont compromise character and I hold mine high and when compromised I make it know, first calm and when they go on either I walk away dont talk again or if pushed depending how far I can lash out. And its most times and I hate it. Its hurting me I dont want double standards in my life. So yes even my 16 year old does not listen instead when corrected he will same thing for public audience and when people do things and I indicate I dont like they say who you when you beaten by you son and even my mom and sibblings do this to me. Currently Im in a legal dispute because of domestic violence living in a volatile community and I hate the lifestyle here. Imoved after termination of contract back to family home and its hell for me struggling.from the eloquent life I lived. I take care of kids by goodwill and yet their father long story does not confide and communicate with me but his daughter least support them. Basically Im in a messy environment. Please help me to change. Im also going for psychlogy treatment no meds as yet. Thank you

    Respect is most often earned through fear and intimidation. We are but animals, we homo sapiens, and as such are drawn to the bold and daring. Be the Alpha, exhibit the traits of dominance, and you WILL be respected. Respect is not given, it is not earned…..IT IS DEMANDED AND TAKEN!!!

      Don’t say anything.

      Work your arse of until it’s obvious that you’re getting somewhere, show those who shame you respect, regardless of what they have done. If they tease you, laugh along, keep it light-hearted. Never lose your cool on anyone. Don’t be afraid of being alone, you should look confident in your own skin. People will eventually grow to respect you.

    I find it very useful. Trust and respect are the most important thing to build.

  37. Hey, I think number 5 is the most important because above all, true respect must be earned and having integrity is the best way of achieving that, in my opinion.

    It’s not just about doing what you say – it’s also about living life to your own values and respecting yourself first.
