Parties are a fun social gathering activity. However, like in all social activities, there are people that will take the attention of the entire group. The remaining others will simply go with the flow set by these “leading” actors. At first glance, this division might seem to come naturally, but it is not like that. There are certain behaviors that can influence how much you are noticed. In this article, we will point out some things you can do that will help be stand out at a party.
Your appearance is the first presentation to other people. Personal hygiene is the first step to be considered. Take a shower. Do not forget to use deodorant! It is important to know the right amount of perfume. You don’t want to be noticed at a party because of your scent so don’t overdo it!

It is important to know the type of party you are going to and adapt your look to it. You cannot go to a casual birthday party with the same look you would go to a special cocktail event. Dress accordingly!
Some psychologists say this is the first step that helps make you ge and divides the lead actors in the group from the others. Remember to be confident and bright. Humor is always a good way to show that you are approachable and sincere. Since it is the presentation, humor needs to be subtle, especially with people you may not know.
According to psychologists, the position each participant takes in a social gathering defines the group’s focus of attention. Place yourself in the center and invite the other members around you!
Staying in the center position during the entire party is not the right option. It is important to move and continuously interact with every party member. Do not be afraid to start a conversation. Get people’s attention by asking them questions or by talking about their favorite topics. When you do not know, simply ask them about their interests and go from there!
