This post is in partnership with Inc. The article below was originally published at Inc. Have you noticed there are people who always seem to be more likable? In a recent episode of the new ABC drama Mind Gamesone of the characters mentions an interesting personality trait that defines the most popular people: they more readily admit their weaknesses rather than waiting for them to be revealed over time. Ask questions.
When someone appears to need our help, we tend to like them more because we like being the one who provides the answers. Talk more, not less. A friend of mine is a small business owner and he is extremely well liked. One of his strongest traits is that he tends to talk constantly. Being an introvertI need to develop this trait more in myself—and use texting and e-mail a little less often. Give your time…gratis. A no-strings-attached approach to helping others also makes you more likable. Listen better. Sometimes, over-communicating puts people at ease. Good communicators take a breath once in a while!
Likable people are always listeners who are curious to genuinely learn new things. The best communicators talk and talk—and then listen for a response. That makes them an office favorite. Really and truly care. How do you develop the personality trait of caring? It can be difficult, especially in an age of social media where everyone is dangerously close to being a narcissist.
Caring is an act of setting aside your own interests and ambitions for a while and helping others. It requires effort.
You have to consciously decide you are going to care about someone else. We all know how important it is to steer clear of the office know-it-all. Why is that? More importantly, those who have all of the answers are usually pushing their own agenda. Go for the laugh, every time. Usually, the most-liked people are those that can fill a room with laughter. Just make sure you are ready to see the humor in something.
Be someone who can laugh easily and smile often. Lighten up. I will admit to struggling with this one. Most of the time.
Really serious people are essentially acting selfish because they focus too much on their personal issues. Highly likable people at work are those who can set aside their concerns and go with the flow.
What does that really mean? That makes him likable because he will adjust to the situation. Admit your weaknesses. That character on the show Mind Games is right: Admitting weaknesses makes you more likable. People figure them out on their own anyway. People are more likely to suggest a few solutions, come to your aid, and even pat you on the back. from Inc. at letters time. By John Brandon.
