There’s nothing simple about the person you are. Your genes, childhood and past experiences are patterned in an intricate way to build your personality, and it’s both complex and special because it wires your character. It not only controls your personality traits but also your thoughts and how you take on the challenges and opportunities of life. Kendra Cherry who is an author and educational consultant wrote about what personality is and said, “It encompasses all of the thoughts, behavior patterns, and social attitudes that impact how we view ourselves and what we believe about others and the world around us.”
It could be that the way you see the world around you is shaped by your personality as well. For instance, take a look at the picture below without thinking much about it. The first thing that you see could reveal a few things about your personality that you may not have realized. What you subconsciously see first says this about who you are:
When you saw the image and found that your eyes were first drawn to the trees, then it could reveal that you are more of an extrovert. On the outside, you are a strong person with a fearless aura and on the inside, you are resilient and independent. While you may be gentle and kind to the people around you, you also never give people the chance to take you for granted. And if they do, you make sure they pay the price for it.
You are the kind of person who says it like it is. You don’t waste your time sugarcoating things even if it means showing some tough love. But the main reason why you do this is that you have the best interests of your loved ones in mind. And this also helps you take criticism in a healthy way. You tend to pay extra attention to what other people might think of you, not so that you can conform to people’s expectations, but because you know there’s always scope for improvement and you would love to see yourself grow. When you’re around your friends and family, they love how open-minded you are, and your cheery vibe is infectious. You are the first person they call when they want to head out on a new adventure because you never say no to a challenge.
If it was the roots that caught your attention first, it could be a sign that you’re a quiet, calm person who has a lot to say, but you only say it to the people you carefully choose. Spending time with your loved ones is important to you. And you also make sure to take time out for yourself to get in touch with your innermost thoughts. Your dedication, hard work, and organized nature shines through when you are doing the things that you absolutely love.
The things that you are absolutely stubborn about are your passions and your most valued relationships. You don’t let anything come in the way of achieving your heart’s deepest desires. And you are willing to go the extra mile when your friends need an extra push. You remain composed even during the toughest challenges because you don’t let your emotions get ahead of yourself. You think with clarity and it helps you remain at ease when problems come. That’s why your friends and family love talking to you because not only are you a great listener, but you also have a sharp mind that comes up with great solutions. Although people don’t get the chance to see your true colors at first, once they get to know you they see that you’re an extremely gifted person with lots of love to share.
When you saw the image and found that your eyes were hooked on the lips first, it could be a sign of a carefree and easygoing personality. You prefer not to carry unnecessary emotions or meaningless thoughts in your heart. Instead, you choose to fill it with joy from the simple pleasures that life has to offer. While others may fail to see the beauty in the little things, you thoroughly enjoy them and let that humble feeling of contentment keep you going.
Chasing after a busy, glamorous or larger-than-life way of living is not your thing. You like to keep things uncomplicated, whether it’s with the relationships, habits or behavioral patterns in your life. Your friends and family love the honesty and trust that you bring to the table because it’s hard to find people who put a sincere effort into relationships the way you do. What’s more is that you’re not overly rigid or stubborn about things. Your flexibility and openness make it easier for people to connect with you and build long-lasting relationships. There may have been times in the past where people take you for a ride because of your good nature. But you have realized the need to stand up for yourself and read people better, so that next time you can step away from complicated and undesirable relationships like these.
