“The ability to quickly and permanently remember people's names is an extremely underrated skill.”
Dale Carnegie used to say, "For most people, their own name is the sweetest and most important sound in any language." By remembering the other person’s name, you show the them that they are important to you, that you like them. If you don’t remember their name, it’s like saying, “I don’t care about you.” Well, you don’t want to give such an impression of yourself, don’t you?
Always remember the other person’s name.
