People Judge Your Personality Based On These 5 Small Things

As humans, we are hardwired to judge those around us. It’s a survival mechanism that can make it very hard to meet someone new without completely analyzing their behavior.
You might think that our judgements are based on the contents of conversations or other obvious behaviors, but the research points in another direction.
In fact, the majority of our judgments are focused on very subtle aspects, like handshakes and body language. Most people form complete opinions about other people based on these behaviors, before ever speaking to them.
Humans are so good at judging other people’s personalities on minor details that, in a University of Kansas research project, test subjects were able to predict people’s personality traits simply by looking at pictures of the shoes they wore.
Our unconscious mannerisms and actions have an entire language of their own, and most of the time the communication isn’t very kind.
Your unconscious behaviors are an integral part of who you are, and if you don’t spend a lot of time contemplating you actions, now is probably a good time to start.
Below are 5 small behaviors other people use to judge your personality…

1. Your clothing color choices.

According to Psychology Today, the color of clothes you wear says more about who you are than many other superficial features. People who choose darker, earth tones, blacks or grays tend to be more sensitive and artistic. People who wear red tend to be perceived as lively people.

2. Nail biting.

Some body focused behaviors, like nail biting, can indicate to people that you’re impatient, frustrated, or that you react ti certain situations with anxiety or boredom.

3. The shoes you wear.

It may sound a little catty, but some psychologists think you can judge a person by their shoes. Examining the cost, style, color and condition of a shoe can tell you much about someone’s income, political affiliation, gender, and possibly even age.

4. Your handshake.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, but your handshake can exude confidence or weakness. You can also determine a lot about how introverted or extroverted a person is based on the strength of their handshakes.

5. Your handwriting.

According to one study, people with small, meticulous handwriting come off as shy, where as people with larger, sloppier handwriting appear more outgoing. They also found people who were careful about how their writing appeared and wrote slowly were more empathic and sensitive.
