Nunchi (noon-chee): eye measure. The subtle art of gauging other people's thoughts, and feelings in order to build trust, harmony and connection.
Why did she get promoted? Why does the party only start when he walks in? And why do they always catch the bartender’s eye? It sounds like they’re all experts in the art of nunchi, even if they don’t know it.
Nunchi is the guiding principle of Korean life, but anyone can use it: it’s the art of reading a room, your way of understanding what other people are thinking and feeling, and using that to get ahead.
Korean parents believe that teaching their children nunchi is as important as teaching them to cross the road safely. With great nunchi, it feels like the world is on your side. Without it, you might get hit by something you never saw coming.
If you’re thinking ‘not another Eastern fad, Marie Kondo already made me throw half my clothes away’, don’t worry: it’s not a fad. Koreans have been using nunchi to overcome slings and arrows for over 5000 years.
The great news is that anyone can hone their nunchi, immediately: all you need are your eyes and ears. In everything, from finding love to excelling at work, improving your nunchi will help you to open doors you never knew existed.
Improve your nunchi, improve your life.

Nunchi ist die Superpower des koreanischen Lebens und gilt als unabdingbar für das Überleben, das Glück und den Erfolg. Wörtlich übersetzt bedeutet Nunchi [nun tschi] das Augenmaß. Es ist die Kunst, sofort zu erfassen, was andere Menschen denken und fühlen, und dadurch die Beziehungen zu verbessern. Man kann es auch die emotionale Intelligenz im koreanischen Stil nennen.
Die Korea-Expertin Euny Hong zeigt in diesem Lebensratgeber die Prinzipien des Nunchi, wie man sie praktisch anwendet und lernt, "zwischen den Zeilen zu lesen" und menschliche Reaktionen zu deuten.
Mit Nunchi kann man den richtigen Partner im Leben finden, beruflichen Erfolg erlangen, sich vor Menschen schützen, die einem Schaden zufügen, seine sozialen Ängste reduzieren und ein zufriedeneres Leben führen. Diese Fähigkeit ist für jeden erlernbar, unabhängig davon, wer man ist, wo man steht, wie man aussieht, oder wo man hinwill. Die wichtigste Technik dabei ist, zu beobachten.
Die acht Prinzipien des Nunchi:
1. Legen Sie Ihre Vorurteile ab.
2. Der Nunchi-Beobachter-Effekt: Lernen Sie zu beobachten.
3. Beobachten Sie, um Informationen zu erhalten.
4. Verpassen Sie niemals die Gelegenheit, den Mund zu halten.
5. Halten Sie sich an die Regeln.
6. Lesen Sie zwischen den Zeilen. Die Leute sagen nicht immer, was sie denken.
7. Wenn Sie unbeabsichtigt Schaden anrichten, ist das manchmal so schlimm, als hätten Sie es absichtlich getan.
8. Seien Sie flink und schnell.
