Pleasing Personality

A pleasing personality is considered one of your most important assets.

Your personality determines whether people are attracted to you or shy away from you. It is the one thing that distinguishes you from all other people. It is your trademark and determines your success or failure in life.

It is important to see your personality just as others see it, so you may improve it as needed. The good news is that you have complete control over your personality.

Negative Habits Destroy a Pleasant Personality

1. Breaking in and running away with conversation.

2. Sarcasm expressed by insinuations and wise cracks.

3. Vanity express either by words or actions.

4. Indifference in listening. Be a good listening rather than a good talker.

5. Attempt to flatter where flattery is not deserved.

6. Habit of finding faults of the world at large and people in general.

7. Openly and directly challenging people.

8. Volunteering unsolicited advice. Free advice is considered to be worth just what is cost which is nothing but the patience to listen.

9. Habits of speaking of physical ailments and personal worries.

10. Conveying an impression of superiority through use of words and topics unfamiliar to others.

11. Envy of those who are successful. Generous, sympathetic, and joyous of the good fortune of others.

12. Slovenliness. While clothing does not make the person, but it is a good start.

If you are not liked by other people, you may be sure there is a reason you can detect and correct. There’s no reason for one person to dislike another without a cause.
