Our personality is what defines us. It is our way of talking, walking, dressing up, body language and such traits that make or mar our impression on others. There are certain behavioral traits that go a long way in defining you as a person, such as the way you treat others at work, the way you respond to someone you have just met, how you react to a person who isn't as well off as you, etc. You might be having an impressive face cut and a toned body but if you fail to treat others with respect, you instantly turn off the people around you.
You might've heard of personality development classes that are quite prevalent nowadays at workplace and even schools and colleges. If you have attended one, then you might have an idea of what goes into the making of a good personality. However, if you are one of those who haven't had a chance yet to partake in such sessions, then read and follow these 15 brilliant ways that can boost your personality. After all, a good personality can take you places and also leave a good impression on others.
Before beginning with anything, it is imperative that you know about it and same goes for your personality too. Learn about yourself, your strengths and weaknesses, and be open to improvements.
You should never try to force yourself into something that you don't seem to like or are not comfortable with. Maintain your identity and try to bring out the best in yourself. Just remember, you are not better than anyone and nobody is better than you.
Being courteous and supportive of other people will always find you a place in their good books. Appreciation and not pulling others down will always score high as compared to hate and jealousy.
Nothing, trust me, nothing in this world is more attractive than a man/woman of integrity. Be honest and true to your words, never disrespect anyone and you will see how you earn respect yourself.
There are more people interested in conveying their thoughts and less with an interest to listen. Those who listen attentively to others and give them the necessary attention are always appreciated by one and all. Maintain a direct eye contact and show interest in what the other person has to say. You will realise how it works wonders for others as well as for you.
Confidence is something that is the highlight of your personality. A confident personality is always well received and respected. People love to hear and follow a confident person, irrespective of his/her looks and position. Have faith in yourself and do your best, the rest will follow.
You get to learn and know more about other cultures and also get a chance to learn something new from others when you widen your social circle. Never shy away from meeting new people and keep doors open for new people.
Nobody likes a dull and gloomy person. You don't need to be a comedy king or a clown to impress others; all you need to do is loosen up a bit and be a little fun. Indulge in some light-hearted conversations but never go over the board.
You should never stop learning. Read something and diversify your horizon. Make it a habit of reading something every day and learn something from what you read. You will not only add to your knowledge but will also be able to converse on different subjects.
A good body language is as essential as good communication skills. Walking with confidence, sitting in an upright position, shaking hands firmly, looking in the eyes of the person you are talking to are all a part of good body language and go a long way in boosting your personality.
Never say never...keep adding to your world and keep exploring things. Travel, read, meet people, help, pick up a new hobby; all this will brighten your personality and will attract people towards you.
Having an opinion is important to make good communications. If you don't have any opinion, people will not find it interesting to talk to you. Have some points to talk about, argue about and never shy from sharing your opinion.
The more you know about your weakness, better are the chances that you will improve on them. A person who doesn't know or acknowledges his/her weak areas can never improve on them. To become a better person, it is wise to learn about your weaknesses and try to overcome them.
Judging others will not fetch you anything. Judging is a sign of weak people. Focus on yourself and work on your shortcomings rather than judging others. This is what will give you an edge over others and make you a better person.
Last but not the least, be positive in your thoughts, actions, and approach. Spread positivity wherever you can and you will see people getting attracted to you and learning from you.
