Being outgoing is a pleasant personality. It helps us enjoy our day as well as make people around like to be with us. Additionally, being in certain careers, being outgoing is an important trait to be successful. Most of those careers are mainly related to face to face communication with other people . Some of us might be born not outgoing, but it can be learned. Some tips for that are:
1. Be friendly and keep saying Hello
Being friend is actually an important life skill regardless of if you want to be outgoing or not because we need others around to like us. To many friendly people, saying hello to others is very easy. But, people like me will find it hard to do it, naturally. However, I have found it that it is only a habit. Once I started to say “Hello and Good Morning” to everyone I see in my office for about a week, it became my habit now. And, surprising, my relationship starts to be closer and closer.
2. Learn to smile
Smiling is a daily positive sign from a person, and it actually is the first communicative act. Smiling, in deed, could mean different good things. When you smile, others think you are friendly, you are being happy, and you are approachable at that time. Normally, our face is where our current emotional mood is. Therefore, when you smile, it are telling others that you are outgoing.
3. Being Funny
Being funny some time is being likable. If we look back into the relationship with our best friends, we could get into the stage because we have a lot of fun with each other. Simply, everyone likes to laugh. If you could make laugh, they will, of course, like you and want to be with you. Sometimes, they feel something is missing in the gathering without you.
4. Laugh along
If you could make others laugh, at least you need to learn to enjoy the laugh along with the rest. In short, you share the same current mood the rest is having. By doing so, you could appear to be outgoing too because you include yourself to the group.
Whenever you are out with others, you need to involve yourself with the activities the group decided to play. Do not just go with them but isolate yourself from the group at the spot. Getting involved with the rest shows your sense of belonging to the group.
6. Ask questions to start the conversation
In case you are out and meet others you have not known before, you could appear outgoing simply through asking questions and initiating a small conversation with them. You are probably making a new good friend as well. That is a good personality, isn’t it?
7. Giving compliments
Expressing sincere compliments to people around will make them feel good, and they will feel good also about you. By so, they notice you in their mind. If there is something they could do with you, they will remember you and may contact you for that. That is how you start to be even more outgoing with being nice to everyone.
There are specific skills in life that may be so important for our everyday activities. Among those being likable is every important because others want to be with you and support the person they like more than the rest. However, you need as well to be nice and supportive to get those back from others.
