Knowing how can you improve your personality will be highly beneficial.

But before you acquire all of these improved personality rewards, you should first go over some personality improvement steps. You do not have to exert too much effort or money in these processes, all you have to do is to value yourself and be patient in doing the following:

How can you improve your personality

Advice 1: Be Neat

A good personality requires a good looking you. This does not solely mean that you should possess a perfect body figure or a perfect face. Looking pleasant by having a clean cut hairdo or neat clothing will do the trick. Try looking at yourself in the mirror without setting or combing your hair, and by just wearing baggy, not to mention soiled clothes. Do these make you look dignified? NO! How can you improve your personality if you look dirty and gaunt? Make it a number one to be neat on yourself, and start taking your hair or clothing style seriously.

Advice 2: Make Hygiene a Must

Another simple yet effective trick on boosting your self-esteem and making yourself more dignified and bash free is to prioritize good hygiene practices. Well, if you are thinking that this topic can be very broad to accomplish, and you do not know where to start, why not consider on improving your oral hygiene.

Bad breathe is an absolute turn off for everyone, and you can not just face and talk to somebody with a foul odor coming from your mouth. If you want to be highly sociable, have a good oral care and equip yourself with a handy mint spray. Regular bushing, flossing and gargling with mouthwash will also help you a lot.

To be successful in this step, all you have to do is keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing. Note that a healthy looking skin will make you look more vibrant and appealing, so keep your skin fresh looking as much as possible.

Advice 6: Practice Proper Posture and Gait

How can you improve your personality by practicing a proper posture and gait is very simple; all you need to do is practice your self to stand straight, tall and confident. As much as possible, try not to slouch because this can lower your confidence level and can weigh up your insecurities, plus remember that you should also move with finesse. Well you do not have to move slowly, simply act or do things carefully and gently so that you will not look careless and too loud.

Advice 7: Be Calm and Gentle

This strategy is highly required when you are communicating with other people. A person with a good personality always knows how to handle things calmly and gently. Know the right words to say and always remember to be polite even in a tough situation.

Being temperamental will do you no good, and this will also pull down the respect that you can get from other people. Master your attitude through proper speaking, and of course always remember to show and execute proper manners.

Advice 9: Learn how to Pay Attention and Listen

Big and small details should matter to you equally.

For you to have a good personality, make it a habit to pay attention and listen to the things that are happening around you. If you are careful enough to know even the smallest details in your life, you will be able to see the things in you that have to be improved or changed, just remember to do this step slowly and appropriately, and do not exaggerate.

Advice 10: Be Confident about Yourself

The best strategy on how can you improve your personality is to be confident to our very own self. Be proud of who you are - that even though you are not perfect, you still have the capacity to make yourself useful and dignified with your skills and attitude. Remember the formula: good attitude plus good personality, equals success, contentment and happiness? This is actually the bottom line of how can you improve your personality. Your SELF is your personality, so do not be insecure about it and learn how to love it as it is. Improve those that are bad, and retain those that are good.

Think Positive, Be Positive, and Act Positive and you will surely improve your personality to be at its hype.

      Such good advice, Like the old saying beauty is only skin deep. It is the person within that counts. I had a problem because I didn't smile a lot (because self conscious of my teeth) So I was often called smiley. But what annoyed me was that I was really happy just never showed it I suppose with a big smile.

      Great advice. The old favorite 'don't sweat the small stuff' should feature somewhere because we all tend to worry too much about things that don't really matter and that can have an impact on our personality as well.
