Yes, we really, really like you!
You know how there some people you just instantly like? You can’t explain why you like them so much but there’s just something about them that resonates with you. They may be someone you meet in real life or a character in a movie, but for whatever reason they’re likable.
Likability is an important characteristic to have in life as it can help you in business and in social interactions. There’s a positivity to it that others find attractive and will make them want to engage with you.
While some people are just likable all on their own, others may strive to come off as more likable.
There are many qualities that make someone likable such as kindness, being open-minded, not being overly critical of others, being empathetic and having a sense of humor. Someone who is likable doesn’t take themselves too seriously, and may be funny on their own but can also appreciate someone else’s humor as well.
But not every factor of being likable is easily identified — there are also those people you just like.
When people try to separate themselves from others by being snotty, condescending, or unpleasant, they make themselves unlikeable and, in some cases, isolated. No one wants to be around someone who is hypercritical, mean, and insensitive.
Although there are unlikeable individuals or people we may take an instant disliking to, almost everyone has something likable about their personality; it just may be a little harder to see with those people we don’t immediately like or gravitate towards.
If you think of yourself as someone who is likable, do you know why you are, or what the combination of likable qualities are that you have? We can develop to be more likable if we are lacking in likability. Perhaps you don’t know what makes you likable and if there are qualities that you should develop for greater likability.
But here’s what makes you likable, based on your zodiac sign.
You're likable not just because you're fun and enthusiastic but because you work on yourself. You're always striving to be a better person and you're able to admit when you're wrong or when you did something where you didn't think before you acted. You work just as hard on yourself as you do with your relationships and that makes you extremely likable.
The great thing about you is that you make an effort to understand other people and you don't believe that you're better than anybody else. You appreciate people and accept their flaws and failures as you would have them accept yours. You're very kind and generous.
One of the qualities that make you so likable is that you have a firm grasp on your convictions and don't need to convert someone else. You're not constantly telling people how the ideals they have suck, nor do you point out how stupid their beliefs are. You're great to be around and bring people together rather than tear them apart.
The thing that makes you likable also makes you a great friend, and it's the fact that you validate other people's feelings even when you don't agree with them.
You're one of the most likable signs of the zodiac, if not the most likable. You're outgoing, friendly, funny, and generous. But the quality that stands out above the rest is that you're usually upbeat and in a good mood. You effortlessly make other people happy and that's why people love to be around you.
You don't always know it but you're very likable. Although you can be shy and hesitant to make the first move, you do one thing that makes you compelling: you ask the right questions and you listen to people's answers, drawing people into conversations. One of the things we all want is to be heard and, in your unobtrusive way, that's exactly what you do.
You've got two things going for you: you're charming and non-judgmental. You don't get into somebody's face or start trouble; you like to keep things mellow and cool and it puts people at ease.
You're likable because of how dearly you hold your friends. Friendship isn't something that you give to everyone, but even those who aren't your friends respect that. You're incredibly loyal and not only is that likable, it's a wonderful trait to have.
You're so optimistic and full of life, it's somewhat impossible not to like you. You want to share the world with everyone you meet and you consider even strangers as your friends. You're fun to be around and your joy at discovery and adventure is contagious.
There are so many qualities that make you likable — you're hardworking, focused, and dependable. You keep all your promises, but the one thing that sets you apart from others on the likability scale is that you look people in the eye when you talk to them. You make people feel comfortable and treat everyone respectfully. When you give respect, you command respect.
You're one of a kind and you love being unique and unorthodox. This may be why you're completely open to other people and make them relaxed enough to be themselves. You pay attention to people and what they say, so much so that you even put your phone away when you're talking to someone. You're engaged and present which makes you extremely likable.
You're likable because you're so compassionate, empathetic and will gladly stick your neck out for someone. Most people like to play it safe, but you care so deeply for others that you put your own safety aside if it means helping someone else.
