AND ARE YOU GOOD LOOKING?
The original post was about a personality test but a lot of people arrive here trying to find out the meaning of being good looking. So I’ve edited the page and added the key psychological points of being good looking.
It seems to me that most people know if they are good looking or not. We also know that some people are born with great attributes: they have symmetrical faces and are tall and well proportioned.
For the rest of us, this is what we can DO about being great looking:
- Smile. Smile when you speak to someone, smile when you go down the street, smile when you sing in church, smile when you talk on the phone, smile when you are alone. Smiling tells people that you like them, or that at least you are willing to give them a chance. And they like you for giving them a break even if they are a teacher, a traffic cop or just the utility man trying to do his job.
- Listen. Look at the person and follow what they are saying. Watch their body language and fall into step with them. Dance with them. Repeat what you think they said before you add your own story. Walk in their shoes! Most people are never ‘heard’ and the relief people feel when you listen is palpable. Watch for it. Just remember to smile when you start speaking yourself.
- Spruce up. People like to interact with someone who takes care. There is no set way of dressing. Just take care. Wash, iron, end, brush. Fold your clothes at night. Clean your shoes. If you feel good, people catch your mood and feel good too.
- Exercise. Look after your bod. If you hate sport, dance. A good bod is a good bod. If you are working two jobs. Take the stairs. Do neck exercises in the shower. Do Pilates quietly on the bus!
- Gratitude. The last thing you should do every night is think about the people who gave you a break: the canteen lady who dished your food, the professor whose lesson made sense, the bus driver who took your money. If you forgot to thank them in person, well do it next time. But every night, go to sleep on the memory of people who did well what they could have done badly. You will sleep better and look forward to tomorrow, smile more readily, listen more easily, iron your shirt with more humor and bound up the stairs with more energy.
And it will show. People will notice you and want to talk to you. Which will make you smile!
Enjoy! Five steps. Smile. Listen. Spruce up. Exercise. Gratitude.
