A fair amount of research has gone into the way people react to their own name. In many cases, it’s the word they react most favorably to hearing.

If we know this to be the case, shouldn’t we focus more on knowing people’s names, pronouncing their names correctly and treating them with the respect they deserve?

I know that I’m terrible with names and really need to focus more when introduced to people but when we know the names of people we are going to meet, in advance, the least we should do is get those correct.

Have a great day!
