How You Make People “Feel” Good

There’s a great quote by Maya Angelou that many of you have likely heard somewhere along the way that says “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

While this quote couldn’t be more true, do you ever wonder why the way you make people FEEL is the most important? Here’s the scientific proof behind the answer; When the brain detects an emotionally charged event, the amygdala releases dopamine into the system. Because dopamine greatly aids in memory and information processing, this obviously creates an ingrained event that says “remember this!” So the next time someone makes you FEEL good about an experience you go through with them, now you’ll understand why.
