Three Things That Define You

Over the centuries, it has been said that the way you look or how much money you have does not define the type of person you are. Some scholars have even gone further to explain the basis for the difference in the type of individuals we have here on earth. There are books that have defined human beings based on their temperaments and the way they react to situations, we also have the ones that have their studies based on the twelve zodiac signs and astrology. However, in spite of all the numerous studies conducted on the human behaviour, what are the things that give you an insight into someone you are meeting for the first time? What are the things to look out for? Here are three major aspects that define an individual:

  • Dressing: It is constantly being preached to act the way you want to be addressed. The way an individual dresses says a lot about their personality, attitude and beliefs. It is possible to deduce a lot of things about a person by just looking at the way they are dressed. For example, a conservative style of dressing says that the individual is quite reserved while a loud way of dressing can tell you that the individual is bold and outgoing. Also, by dressing you can deduce some beliefs of the person. For example, you can tell a person’s religion by their mode of dressing and appearance.
  • Speech: The way a person talks gives away so much about them than we realise. If you properly observe the way a person talks, you can deduce their level of intelligence and education. You can also tell what they stand for and how they will react to certain circumstance since it is common knowledge that a person reacts to different situations based on his level of reasoning.
  • Body language: Watching a person sitting down from afar, one can judge and predict what kind of person he is even before talking to him. This is because body language says much more than you thought. A confident person has a sharp and concise aura about him, in contrast to an unsure and insecure person who radiates doubt and low self-esteem. Through the way an individual gesticulates, a lot can be said about him just by watching and observing his body language.

However, these three rules might not apply to every single person on earth as there are certain types of individuals that deliberately exude a different outward appearance that is totally different from their real personality. These set of people, however, constitute a lesser part of the population.
