Trait-based personality theories, define personality as the traits that predict a person’s behaviour, while more behaviourally-based approaches define personality through learning and habits.
Personality development is the process of developing a set of characteristics and traits which contribute to the overall personality of a person. Here are a few guidelines on personality development
Be Confident: Confidence is certainly the most important factor which adds to the personality of any individual. A person’s confidence might be low due to mistakes, failure, guilty or any other thing which is undesirable. Some people often develop inferiority complex due to their physical appearance, caste, financial status etc. Such people think of confidence as their weakness, while the truth is that confidence is an individual’s biggest strength.
Your confidence reflects your character, attitude and passion. You should be confident about who you are and whatever you do and will help you to express yourself and stand amongst the crowd.
Improve Your Communication Skills: The way you speak reflects who you are. Be polite and gentle with your words. Use decent words while interacting with everyone. Always think before you speak. English being globally accepted is preferred everywhere, so work on your English proficiency.
Dress Up Well: Dressing sense means the general sense about how you should dress up for office, party or any other occasion. A person should therefore wear according to the situation and according to how well the attire suits him/her. Dressing sense thus plays a major role in personality and confidence development.
Watch Your Body Language: Body language plays an important role to judge a person s confidence and personality. Try to make use of positive gestures while interacting with others. This shows that you are at ease while having a discussion. Studies reflect that 75% of our communication happens non-verbally.
Improve Your Social Skills: Man is a social animal. Every individual has to interact with a group of people one time or the other. Being shy or introvert is the least desirable characteristics in any individual. Always stay updated with the current affairs and what is happening in your society. Try participating in group discussions and seminars. This will help you to be more open and adjust amongst a group of individuals.
Be a Patient Listener: Be an enthusiastic listener. Listening is a very essential part of communication. This will help you to see things from the eyes of others. Try to get away from any possible distraction while talking to your family members, friends and co-workers. Ask questions to let the other person know that you were listening to him/her.
Be a Good Learner: Good learning skills in an individual are highly desirable. You should always have the zeal to learn new things. This reflects your enthusiasm. Don t let yourself repeat the same mistakes, learn from them.
Be Optimistic: Have a positive outlook towards everything. Nobody wants to be around a person who is negative and complaining all the time. Nobody wants to work/live with a pessimist. When you face a failure, let go of the assumption that you are the unluckiest person alive. Use positive statements like I can do it, I always have a choice, etc. Expect good things from the future.
Develop Leadership Qualities: A good leader is believed to have a good personality. Leadership skills do not mean how well you give orders to your subordinates. It means how well you can manage your subordinates to accomplish a particular task. Lead by example, work harder to set an example to your subordinates.
