We meet new people everyday, for work or otherwise—whether we interact with them or not, you
develops instinctive likes and dislikes towards people. This has lot to do with their personality.
To think that your personality is made up of only the way you look would be anomalous however.
Your ideas, the way you think, your priorities in life, your emotions all comprise your personality.
You need to understand and accept yourself the way you are if you want to be happy.
You can take a personality test to help you figure out what kind of personality you have. A
substantial number of these are available online and in different books. Think about how much
you know yourself. What are the things that are important for you?
Put all societal and familial expectations aside for a minute and think about what you really want
to do, what would make you happy? Knowing yourself well is important and will serve you well in
When you are looking for a job, for example, it would be ideal to not get stuck with something that
you don’t want to do. Knowing yourself would also help you accept other people as they are. It
will help you develop an open mind.
One way or the other, the ultimate thing is to do things that are important for you and that make
you happy. If you are an introvert, you should regularly spend quality time by yourself. You can
also keep your diary, if you are uncomfortable sharing your deeper thoughts with other people.
Don’t hesitate to stand by what you believe in.
