Getting into someone’s head is a very difficult thing to do unless they’re really close to you. The best way to get into someone’s head is to become so close that they are willing to open up and talk about their problems, thoughts and feelings.
If you aren’t that close, it’s pretty much impossible unless they happen to tell you what’s going on in their head. If you do want to try, here are some tips:
Be interested in them – if you show them that you’re interested in what they have to say, then they’ll be more likely to want to share with you. Just keep saying things like “Wow!” and “That’s amazing!”
Ask questions – when people feel comfortable around you, they’ll often open up about themselves and things going on in their lives. Listen carefully while they talk and ask questions when appropriate. Don’t interrupt or try to take over the conversation though!
Pay attention – keep your eyes focused on their face and body language as much as possible so that you can pick up on signals when they’re talking about something important or emotionally charged. If something doesn’t seem right, stop asking questions and just listen until they move on from whatever was bothering them before moving back into questioning mode again
