    Are you trying to understand one particular person better or do you want to gain an overall knowledge of human behaviour. If it's a particular person, spend as much time with the person as you can, talk to them about their motivations, views and opinions and try to put yourself in their shoes and see the world from their perspective.

    Understand yourself first only then you will be able to understand others.

    To know more about a person, talk to him/her, spent time with him/her. At the end of the day, you can tell how he/she's when communicating, when with someone, but that's not enough to know the 100% character of a whole person. Sometimes, it takes a lifetime to know him/her better. As you both grow older, there are more things, traits, behavior are being discovered.

    To understand someone you need to discuss him. You need to talk to him. As you will know more about him you will get to understand him more and more.

    It's so nice of you wanting to know how to understand a person better. The only advice I can give you, regarding communicating with others LISTEN first, try to understand their point, let them finish talking - wait for your turn. You really don't have to win each and every argument. Agree to Disagree. :)

    Try to chit chat with that person. Tell him our views so that he can explain his views. or ask some questions indirectly.
    Communication is most important to understand the person.

    Take an effort to know the person a bit more. Learn to listen and respect their own views and Be open to their ideas. But the main thing there is patience and respect.

    To know a person isn't quite easy. He/She may be talking the opposite he/she is thinking from inside. Look the person's reaction and how the person shares his/her views. His expression and thoughts about particular things can help you know a person well. For me, this is how it works.

    To understand a particular person listen to what he says,just try to read his face.Just try to get what are his goals and where are you in his future.

    Give sometime to him to express what is going in his life,make him comfortable.
