  • analyzing their traits,
  • assessing one’s strengths and weaknesses; and
  • accepting one’s imperfection.

Being well-informed about what’s happening around can also boost one’s self-esteem because it would enable him/her to become a good conversationalist. Being confident in everything one says could gain trust and respect. One can strike up interesting conversations by sharing knowledge and interests that could influence others to indulge in a conversation.

Being able to adjust to different types of people could be appreciated by everybody regardless of culture and gender. Everybody would love people who can make them laugh and bring a lighter perspective in spite of a serious situation. This could give one a charming personality.

Aside from those being mentioned above, having an attentive and sincere listening skills is also necessary in order to have a magnetic personality. It means that, when somebody talks to you, listen with interest and give them all the attention and importance. By showing empathy instead of sympathy, one can lighten up one’s burden instead of prolonging it.

Moreover, the way one talks, dresses and carries his/herself tells about one’s personality. Each one of us is unique. We have our own angst in life. But the bottom line is how we address these weaknesses with grace and confidence. We just need to be ourselves and be proud of what and who we are instead of trying to be another person.

Being confident about our capabilities and being able to accept out weaknesses are the most important tools in having a pleasing personality.
