Etiquette is All About Behaving with Others The Way You Want Them to Behave with You.

Be a good listener and encourage people to talk

What does the above quote mean?
It means that people like you or dislike you based on the small things you do or don’t do in day-to-day life.
It is all about politeness, good manners and social behavior which ultimately display our good upbringing.


Here are some ways to make people like you:

*Do not criticize, condemn or complain.
*Give honest and sincere appreciation. (Do not flatter people)
*Smile (do not cut a sorrowful/ serious face).
*Address people by their names. Remember that a person’s name is to him the sweetest and most important sound in any language. (Do not use descriptive terms to refer to people. e.g. `the boy in the red shirt’.)
*Be a good listener and encourage people to talk.
*Make other people feel important and do it sincerely.

Some table manners
People generally eat in the company of others, and food is less appetizing if the other person has bad table-manners.
*Never speak when your mouthful. Chew with a closed mouth.
*Unfold the napkin and place it cross your knees, without shaking it. Do not tuck it in under your collar or round the neck. After the meal, place the napkin in loosely gathered folds beside your plate.
*Use fork for placing food in the mouth. The fork may be held in the right hand or left hand.
