The world has become a place where people fear expressing themselves openly. People want to hide, to blend in. Such people get intimidated by strong personalities. It bothers them how these personalities can be themselves without anything holding them back. Confidence, openness, honesty, and bravery are qualities that strong personalities have, which others crave. So, do you have a strong personality as well?
Check out the following 7 signs to find out!
1. You Are Careful About Who You Let Into Your Life
As a strong person, you do not rely on other people to tell you who you are, what you are or what you can do. You recognize that some people need to do that to make themselves feel better. You also recognize that some people need to hear these things to feel whole.
Even if you don’t yet know exactly who you are, you know that you do not need a boyfriend, girlfriend, boss, best friend or family member to tell you what you’re capable of. You can figure that out on your own.
2. You’re not an attention seeker.
People misjudge you to be a person who loves being in the spotlight. But in fact, people are drawn to you because of your charming personality. They want to be around you all the time, because they are envious of how open and honest you are.
3. You don’t require validation.
Some people do things just to get approval from other people. But, that’s not you. As long as you do the things you like doing, you don’t need other’s validation. You gain your motivation from the things you desire in life.
4. You Hate Small Talk
Small talk is terrible. If you have a strong personality, you have a lot of ideas. You do not want to waste time talking about people when you could be changing the world.
5. You Know How to Listen
People with strong personalities know how to listen. You might think that people would appreciate this. But in reality, being heard and encouraged actually terrifies people who are not used to it.
6. You stay away from ignorant and insensitive people.
Some people don’t think before speaking and blurt out insensitive things; whereas, they must be more careful and thoughtful. Your strong personality is the result of good understanding. If you fail to see that thoughtfulness in others, you avoid them.
7. You choose friends carefully.
You know how untrustworthy some people can be, so you are super careful about the people you let in your life.You might have less friends but you’ll have fewer friends who will help in times of need.
