15. NYC rule #3: Energy attracts like energy

People read each others energy all the time. Body language, actions, context all add up to an impression which either invites us or repels us.

Happiness tends to throw a wider net than depression but either end of the spectrum will be most likely to attract those in a similar state of mind. Sometimes this plays out in odd ways: rude people are more likely to call other rude people out on their behavior, perhaps because the polite would find it rude to do so.

Negative expectations create negative experiences. Having lived in many cities I find NY to be like one giant cocktail party (mostly without the booze) -- people are spontaneous and ready to engage but YOU have to smile and make eye contact.
