ways to make your personality more vibrant
We all possess certain personality traits that set us apart from the rest. A mix of good and bad, these traits define how we respond to situations and people. While the most common belief is that these traits remain fixed, studies show otherwise!
A research study by psychologists at the University of Illinois suggests that we can change our traits provided we want to change them.
We can become the best version of ourselves if we want to. So, if you are willing to become the most terrific version of you, here are some personality development tips to your aid:
We are taught to be kind to others. Yet, many of us fail to be kind to ourselves. Studies show that self-compassion brings positive traits like optimism, extroversion, wisdom, happiness, positivity and resilience. According to Emma Seppala, research psychologist at Stanford University, self-compassion involves three steps:
- Recognize that you deserve care and concern like anyone else and that is why you must be kind and understanding with oneself.
- Recognize that making mistakes and failing is part of life. So, do not be hard on yourself when you commit a mistake or fail and indulge in self-critical thoughts.
- Be aware of one’s emotions and feelings.
Contrary to popular belief, self-compassion does not mean letting yourself off the hook. Rather, it means taking corrective action, albeit without being too self-critical.
