While we put all the effort to get liked by people around us, the bitter truth is – we cannot please everyone. So, no matter how much we try, we end up saying things that make people dislike us in no time. However, all we can do is – avoid certain traits and behaviors that may turn people against us. According to The Independent, here are traits and behaviours that people find intolerable:
Uploading too many pictures:
While people tend to upload several pictures to get liked, this trait may create a negative impact. In fact, posting too many pictures might distance people, as per a study. While posting many pictures of the family may alienate friends, posting several photos of friends may alienate family. So, better keep some photos to yourself only.
Self-praise won’t impress anyone. So avoid saying things like “I work too hard” or “I care too much,” especially at interviews or at any places that matter. As per a Harvard study, you may end up losing an opportunity if you believe in Humblebragging. So better open up about a real weakness that may not harm the deal.
Researchers showed students videos of an actor’s face with and without emotion. The students rated the emotive actor much higher in likeability.
As per a study, no matter how the person in a photo poses, people like them most if they smile. Another study found that smiling makes people more unforgettable after meeting someone for the first time.
