Winsome means charming and attractive, by the way. Just in case you didn’t know.
First of all, I would like to say ‘YAY ME’ as I realized that my last post was my 100th post on this awesome site I created. I did this in 10 months which would be an average of 10 a month or an average of one post every three days.
Well, I thought it was interesting…
I was reading an article on ‘How to be more Interesting’ on MindPowerNews and after reading the article I realized how much a few of the qualities listed were just good things to do and be on a personal level, so I am sharing them.
It probably is no surprise that you will attract more people if you are not sad, or depressed, or angry…to me that is just awkward. Happy people are magnetic while any other state of mind is just not going to work. Complaining is not at all attractive. Nobody wants to hear it and you shouldn’t do it.
If you are spirited, or passionate about something, like sports or whales or your hobby, you will have more to talk about. Having a passion means it would be something you can talk at length about which makes you more appealing. Try it. Plus you may find someone with the same passion which means a new friend to talk about said passion.
So if you are a lazy person, you do the same thing day in and day out. How can you possibly have anything interesting to say?!?
Charts are always good. This chart shows you how interesting lazy people are.
So get a life, lazy people. That way you will have something to talk about.
What I am trying to say here is if you are aware of what is going around you instead of being only in your head, there are interesting observations to be made.
I made an observation that the urinals were too high for me in the bathrooms at this one high school I was watching a high school play at one time. I actually had to use a regular toilet. I am only 5’6″ on a good day, so that was pretty funny to me. As well as the people I told about that later.
Notice what goes on around you. Make note what you think is conversation worthy. You would be surprised who else can relate.
I always try to keep a few good jokes in mind as they can come in handy. Maybe clean, maybe not. Maybe politically charged, maybe not. Maybe religious, maybe not…But you should know your audience. Jokes in bad taste can make you memorable in a way you would not like. They also can lighten the mood and making people laugh is always a good ice breaker and makes you memorable.
There is nothing more annoying to me than a human who is obviously not paying attention to what I have to say. Whoever you may be talking to, give them the impression that you are genuinely interested in what they have to say.
You can even pay enough attention to at least think of a question about what they are talking about. don’t be so self absorbed that you cannot even feign interest.
Compliment something about them. Smile. Put your phone away long enough to present.
I will tell you that I work in a lot of new places and it is always my goal to try to make people laugh and be memorable. I considerate a challenge.
I try to use people’s names, too. Especially in restaurants. Servers, bartenders and the like. Having a personal and personable relationship with other human beings is just a good thing to do in my mind.
Don’t you agree?
So if you can make a person feel important and interesting(we all are), if you can make them laugh, if you can make them smarter by making them think or introduce new knowledge, if you inspire them to improve themselves then you have a done a good job as a human being.
That is a damn good quality. Being winsome.
Let us practice propping each other up, not tearing each other down.
Please let me know if you got anything out of this post as I think(although it was kind of borrowed) there are a lot of good points in here.
Sharing and commenting shows you care. It makes you memorable to me.
