Ways to be More Likable

Ways to be More Likable

What are some ways to be more likable, say like Katniss Everdeen, Odysseus, or even Pooh Bear?

The protagonist in the story always wins. From the moment we meet these people on screen we realize a quality that draws us in and we want them to win and overcome their obstacles. We see common positive traits in ourselves and we subtly want to be like them, or we find that they may be more likable than ourselves and we wish to be at their level of likability.

There comes a time when we wish that we were more likable because our deepest fear is being rejected, or being seen as the antagonist. We don’t want to be the Darth Vadar, Medusa, or the Joker. These folks have qualities that deter us away from wanting them to succeed and we wish to be anything like them.

Here are five ways that you can be more likable:

  1. Take an interest in other people.
  2. Do good for others.
  3. When you make a mistake, own up to it.
  4. Smile.
  5. Be helpful in any way possible.

Being more likable can help you attract more quality people into your life and generally make you desirable. Who wouldn’t want that?
