We all know what the stereotypical “cool person” is supposed to look like – attractive, charming, fashionable, and confident.
So it’s easy to look at yourself in the mirror and immediately say: I’m not a cool person.
But coolness isn’t about how you look.
Being cool is about harnessing a certain set of cool traits and characteristics, and being the kind of person people want to be around.
So before you write yourself off as not a cool person, check out these 11 signs of cool people, because you might actually be cooler than you think:
1) You Keep Your Emotions Under Control
For many people, it’s easy to “lose your cool”, and we all have our own triggers that can set us off – maybe you’re the jealous type who can’t stand to see your partner with another person; maybe you have anger issues and you fly off the handle at the slightest inconvenience.
I know I struggle with my own personal frustrations from time to time, and it’s definitely something I try to work on.
But a cool person is someone who isn’t controlled by their knee-jerk emotions.
They understand that some feelings are simply temporary, and instead of letting those feelings dictate their behavior and manifest in the worst ways possible, they know how to handle it internally – either removing themselves from the situation or just processing it in healthier ways.
