There are so many different types of people with different personalities which makes life intriguing, to say the least. But trying to figure out how to get along with all these different types can be challenging, especially when you are a straightforward type of person.
Many people have a hard time understanding just what your intentions are, but on the other side, some respect your straightforwardness. No matter what people think about you, there are some perks to having a straightforward personality. Here are five to celebrate.
1. People know exactly who you are
There is no phoniness to you at all. What people see is what they get. You show your true colors no matter what, even if people do not like what you have to say or how you behave. There is no guessing as to who you are. People like others who are truly genuine.
You have a keen ability to be honest to all people at all costs in all situations. There is no wool being pulled over people’s eyes. Everyone can count on you to lay it on the line with all cards on the table. They trust you will be truthful no matter what. They can trust that you state your opinions with great clarity knowing there are no hidden messages in your words.
3. Thick skin
Straightforward personality types have thick skin. People can be just as honest with you as you are with them with an understanding that you can take whatever it is they dish out. You are not easily offended and often do not understand why others are. However, in order to have peaceful relationships, you will need to be considerate of their toes and not step too hard on them.
4. No drama
Your life has no drama. You avoid drama as much as possible. That is partly why you are so honest. When people are offended, hurt, or misunderstand your intentions, that is when the drama starts. So, you do not play the game. You are an open book with no drama nor do you want drama in your life.
5. You know what you want and you get it
You know what you want in life or at least in the moment, and you do what it takes to get it. You tend to have a laser focus that leads you to the goal you are aiming for. It does not matter what else is going on around you because your focus is so intense.
Since you know what you want and you reach your goals no matter what, you radiate confidence that others lack. You are confident about your words, actions, and consequences, and you are not afraid of challenges.
Straightforward personalities often have a reputation for being rude or harsh because of their boldness and honesty. I am sure there are those who are rude or harsh, but if we look closer into the depths of the straightforward person, we actually see there are many positive things about this type of personality as well, and we can appreciate who you are and what you are made of.
