Our personalities are projections of our perceptions and how to effectively do it requires skill, practice and flair.
The first and the most important thing is the attitude. You should have a sense of individuality and you should feel good about it. When you have to make acquaintance with someone, do not be defensive. Just take a stance that is warm and welcoming and put your best foot forward.
It is not what you say but how you say it that matters. It is not the content but the expression that counts. This though is just the first thing to do.
The second tip is to be assertive in your conversation. You can sound pushy if you overdo it, and you can sound aggressive if you do it with more intensely than required. Whatever that you have to say, say it once, say it right and say it with confidence.
The tone of the voice should indicate what you are saying is right and you have the knowledge of it being true. How you intone yourself and how the pitch rises and falls is indicative of assertion.
Start with a firm handshake and let all your talking go about strengthening that handshake. After you have mastered the skills of verbal conversation, the next aspect to be taken into account is your presence.
No matter where you are and how erudite or skilled you might be, if your personality does not match your words and the expression, then you will certainly not get the response that you have been expecting.
Therefore be healthy and fit and always wear the best dresses that you have. Not only they will enhance your personality, but also will show you in a better light. Your confidence matching your appearance makes you more credible and believable.
Ensure your skin is healthy and supple. It enhances your beauty a lot more than any makeup can. Lastly, stick to the trends and follow the current styles.
