business feedback likeable personality

In a job interview you want to stay positive, avoid lodging complaints, being cynical or exuding negativity. Likeability is a big factor for recruiters. They know who their people are, and will look to bring in talented professionals who know how to get along -- sometimes in favor of hiring someone with the best qualifications on paper.

What recruiters desire is common to other arenas as well. At social events, the logic is simple; people are subconsciously drawn to those who have a likable personality.

One of the most important keys to living a happy, healthy and fulfilling life is having the ability to build meaningful relationships. Many factors influence the connections you have with others, but being likable may top the list.

Motivational speaker Anthony Robbins, for instance, understands the value of striving for personal achievement through building positive personal relationships. Dale Carnegie gained international fame for writing on the subject in a book called “How to Win Friends and Influence People”.  He understood that people who carry themselves in a warm and affable manner have a far better chance of enjoying both personal and professional success.

It’s never too late to improve the way you are perceived -- Start today by doing the little things that help you to connect with people, get along with others and make new friends.
