The Top 5 Charisma Traits:


There are only five major personality traits: openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. They make up the acronym OCEAN, and each is present to a certain extent in every person.

These traits are often referred to as the Big Five and they were identified by Dr. Lewis Goldberg in the 1980s.



O For Openness:


The first, openness, is evidenced by how you feel about and approach new ideas – by how curious and adventuresome you are. For instance, if you jump at the opportunity for travel adventures, or constantly rearrange your furniture, you’re likely to be quite open. Conversely, if you’re more into daily routines, your openness is probably limited.



C For Conscientiousness:


The second, conscientiousness, is about getting things done. Signs that you’re conscientious are a love for to-do lists and a strict schedule. However, if lists overwhelm you and you’re more into talking about big ideas than seeing them through, you probably rate lower in this category.



E For Extroversion:


Third comes extroversion, a description of how you feel around others. To figure out where you stand just consider this question: Do you draw your energy from solitude or from groups? If you gravitate toward social time, chances are you’re an extrovert; if you lean toward alone time, you’re likely not.



A For Agreeableness:


The fourth trait is agreeableness, which corresponds to your ability to work with others. This includes your capacity for trust and how well you get along with those around you. If you go out of your way to please others, you’re probably an agreeable person. People who are less agreeable tend to approach others pragmatically, rather than caringly.



N For Neuroticism:


And, finally, neuroticism is marked by a tendency to worry and a susceptibility to mood swings.



How To Gain Respect:


Be an active listener and consider the other person’s viewpoints. Be succinct and be considerate towards others’ time. Be receptive to others’ ideas and learn to acknowledge their inputs too. And follow this formula to gain respect from everyone.

  1. Be yourself.
  2. Take up challenges.
  3. Find your passion.
  4. Work on your purpose.
  5. Consider others as equals.
