Why Strong Personalities are Good for Humankind
Strong personalities are often mistaken for obnoxiousness or prudence, but in reality, usually nothing could be further from the truth. These firm personalities stem from strong characteristics and admirable character traits, and as such, they should be praised rather than shunned. Even if your strong, unique personality turns some people off—or even scares some people off—it’s imperative to remain consistent in your words and actions. Strong personalities lead to positive change both locally and globally, in more ways than could ever be written or spoken. Please read the list below to learn why people with strong personalities are remarkable—and yet frequently misunderstood.
#1: You place reason before emotion.
Utilizing deductive reasoning and rational problem solving sets you apart from the crowd. It may seem to some like this sets you above the crowd—and above them—but this is no reason to change your approach.
#2: You’re assertive.
Small-talk and beating around the bush has become so common that it is expected. You’ve realized that being direct and honest is more efficient and effective when it comes to getting points across and getting things done. Keep doing it.
#3: You defend your morals and beliefs.
Anyone who feels strongly about what they stand for and what they want humanity to stand for should do the same. Even if it is a little intimidating sometimes.
#4: You’re happy when you’re alone and free.
Buddha said that, “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” It’s much better to enjoy your time alone than to be bored whenever you’re free to do as you please.
#5: You don’t try to please everyone.
You’ve realized that doing so is impossible, and also that many people have impure desires and expectations. This is wisdom beyond measure.
#6: You despise shallow socializing.
You’ve realized that it’s far more positive and productive to devote your time and energy to more worthwhile endeavors. There’s nothing wrong with being polite, but expecting someone to be polite for an hour without offering anything of interest is far too much to ask.
#7: You set and track goals.
You know that long-term happiness, peacefulness, and success cannot be achieved or maintained without focusing and keeping track of your needs and desires. You end up accomplishing much more of what you want to as a result of your approach.
#8: You’re a human of action.
It’s not that your words don’t inspire positive change, it’s just that words are far more effective when they’re coupled with related action. Keep inspiring others to do good alongside you.
#9: You’re opinionated.
This stems from having a lot of knowledge, and then having a lot of valuable insights pertaining to said knowledge. Spreading your knowledge is beneficial to anyone smart enough to hear it.
#10: You’re fascinated by individuals.
You’ve realized that every single human being is unique, and also that many helpful things can be learned from every person. You just have to pay attention and think creatively.
#11: You despise ignorance.
Ignorance is not bliss—it’s detrimental to human existence and progression.
#12: You don’t crave attention.
You’re happy when you do good and it’s recognized, but you’re genuinely more concerned with helping humanity as a whole (whether you’re recognized for it or not).
