    I will go first. Whenever your coworker yells at you , ask him / her whether they are good in a calm tone.

    i don't use "psychology tricks", because i'm not a sociopath.

    Exactly what @tosensei said.

    Though maybe you can call brutal honesty a psychological trick? I tend to use that to silence a whiny ass colleague in situations where I can’t just ignore the damn useless whining. Works every time.

    @100110111 you could, but i disagree. to me "brutal honesty" is the absolute baseline of communication - the way it always should be - unless circumstances require a _touch_ of diplomacy.

    @tosensei I agree. In this case I must underscore the brutality of my honesty heavily. Like, I go all out on the brutality part of what I say. Out of my way to formulate the message in the most brutal possible way. But sometimes it takes that to make a whiny ass bitch realise whatever they’re bitching about (usually about something that’s none of their gorramn business) is utterly pointless and should never have escaped their venomous breathing hole.

    Set all meetings 30 minutes earlier to have a guy arrive at the right time (all other people knew the right time).
    This was to reduce waste of time without arguing.
    (But this is not exactly psychological)

    Wait a bit after they ask a question. If they're diligent then you'll see the "nevermind figured it out" a few mins later. Now you want to help them if they need help and ask for it but I found some people just need a little bit of silence at first and they find their own answers and learn this way. If they're still stuck after a bit I'll help them out.
