Good looks may be an asset, but a good persona overrides external beauty across many streams, be it social life, education, arts, and politics. Success and happiness come about when good interactions occur. A good personality acts like a magnet, drawing people. And, it doesn’t need you to be flashy and loud; shyness and restraint are powerful character traits.
Growing age may influence human qualities, but real-life exposure to things has an impact on personality development. Let us know the possible ways and situations that contribute to shaping positive behavior and disposition.
- Be a Good Listener
Talking is a natural habit that comes to most of us. Few realize the power of listening and the difference it can create in personal life and business situations. The best men are not born with an active tongue, but with a hearing ear. The noise of a happy soul or a strained relationship does not need ears. It requires observation, listening, heart, and concerned eyes.
To be an active listener, use nonverbal cues that show understanding. It could be maintaining eye contact, nodding, and leaning forward. Verbal pronouncements like “I understand,” “I see,” “Thank you” show concern. Active listeners avoid interrupting the conversation. They like to repeat what they have heard. They also notice body language to reach an extra level of understanding in the conversation. Meet a person in the eyes too, don’t limit it to a handshake. Little measures like these grooms your personality.

Shop for quirky things such as coffee mugs, clocks, apparels, and instruments for comic relief. It will attract more people towards you and help them count on you in stressful situations.
