12 precise ways to judge someone’s character

By | |

It’s not that easy to be a good judge of people. Can you really tell if a person has positive character traits based on first impressions?

The thing is, it’s easy to be impressed by someone’s level of education, talents, income, social status, job title, and even the number of followers on Twitter or Facebook.

But the qualities that make a person’s character stand out are not related to any of these external credentials.

More often than not, it’s the little things that make the biggest difference.

It takes a lot of careful observation to read the “whys” and “hows” behind a person. The good news is, it’s a skill that can be learned and mastered.

Here are some specific ways to judge a person’s character.

Let’s jump in!

1) The way they treat people they don’t know

Do they show the same courtesy and respect to all? How do they make other people, especially those who are different from them, feel about themselves?

Do they smite a waiter with an “I want to speak to the manager” just because of a simple mistake? Or do they say please and thank you and take extra steps to be kind?

How a person treats cab drivers, cleaners, food runners, and other service professionals says a lot about who they are. 

You’ll know it when a person thinks they are inherently better than someone whom they refer to as ‘just a busboy.’

kind person will be kind and respectful to everyone, not just to those who can give them something in return. 

2) Their body language

Actions speak louder than words, and those subtle nonverbal cues — gestures, facial expressions, and posture — reveal more about a person’s inner self than we think. 

Here are some ways body language reflects a person’s character:

  • Steady eye contact can mean a person is confident, friendly, honest, and genuinely interested. On the other hand, avoiding eye contact may mean a person is shy or disinterested.
  • A genuine smile — one that you can see through the person’s eyes — almost always conveys a positive attitude.
  • Standing tall can mean a person is confident and happy with themselves, while someone who is slumped and slouching can send the message that they are reserved or insecure.
