There’s a strange phenomenon that has been proven to show that “because most people possess positive associations about themselves, most people prefer things that are connected to the self (e.g., the letters in one’s name).” It’s called the Name-Letter-Effect.

Whether or not you believe this, one thing you might like to do is to use a person’s name more in a conversation. Dale Carnegie said “that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language”. Using a person’s name shows respect and acceptance. And a helpful side effect is that you’ll get to remember it quicker!
