Five Tips to Increase Your Likeability

I came across this article today. I'm surprised I had to find it all by my self. Usually, a family member or co-worker makes sure these pearls of wisdom find their way to me...

by Justin Hartfield

This is just a summary. You'd benefit tremendously by reading the article. (fetch the article)

1. Be positive.
The single most common problem facing individuals who want to become more popular/successful/likeable is their own attitude...

2. Control your insecurities.
People that always have to be correct are insecure...

3. Provide value.
The only thing worse than an insecure person is one who is so completely and utterly shutdown from the world that they refuse to display any personality at all...

4. Eliminate all judgments...
Judgmental people are usually easy to spot because they are the ones eating alone in the lunch room...

5. Become a person of conviction.
Make no mistake, people will test you in order to find out exactly where your boundaries are...

Hey! I had no idea you were a grandpa! Congrats! I' assuming, because her name is Mondok, that Charity isn't married... I'd love to pick your brain a bit - my little sister (16) just told us she's pregnant and the baby's coming in December. Well, she told us in July, but it was quite a shocker. The other thing (not a big deal to me, but has my dad just about to jump off a bridge) is that the daddy is black. Any advice??
