Positive or Negative?

*How To Instantly Read Someone’s Personality With One Question*

One type of question can indirectly reveal a lot about a person’s personality.

Asking someone what they think about other people reveals much about their own personality.

*The reason is that people tend to see more of their own qualities in others.*

The generous person sees others as generous and the selfish person sees others as selfish.

Dr Dustin Wood, the study’s first author, said:

_“A huge suite of negative personality traits are associated with viewing others negatively._

_The simple tendency to see people negatively indicates a greater likelihood of depression and various personality disorders.”_

The conclusions come from a series of three studies.

In one people were asked to judge the positive and negative characteristics of three other people.

The more positively they judged those people, the more happy, enthusiastic, capable and emotionally stable they turned out to be themselves.

People who judged others more positively also turned out to be more satisfied with their own lives.

Set against this, those who judged others more negatively had higher levels of narcissism and antisocial behaviour.

The researchers even returned to the same people a year later and found the results were the same.

This suggests that what people’s ratings of others say about themselves remains stable over time.

Personality disorders are often diagnosed at least partly by how people view others, the authors write:

_“…although narcissists may perceive others as being uninteresting or worthless, this may not reflect how they see themselves._

_Similarly, individuals displaying behaviors typical of paranoid personality disorder may believe that others are malevolent and untrustworthy, even though they may not see themselves that way._

_[…]_

_Machiavellianism is usually measured in part by asking individuals the extent to which they perceive a lack of sincerity, integrity, or selflessness in others’ actions, and narcissistic behavior is thought to be prompted in part by a belief that other people are inferior, uninteresting, and unworthy of attention.”_

The study was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology (Wood et al., 2010).

Acceptance

This was the Today’s Topic in my Parenting Whatsap group…

A to Z of Parenting begins with Acceptance and what is Acceptance?

Today was watching the movie Hichki, where the Actress Rani Mukerjee had some rear disease called Tourette Syndrome where she created some noise continuously and that was a shameful thing for her Dad….

As the father never accepted her daughter completely, he never stayed with them.

Luckily she had an understanding and loving Mother and her younger brother who accepted her Completely…..and so she could convert her weakness into her biggest strength.

She wanted to be a teacher but due to her problem she was rejected by 18 schools and again dad wanted her to take up a bank job where she might not have to speak much but she was adamant on being a teacher.

Finally she was appointed by one school but the class she got was of rowdy kids from slums….even children wanted her teacher to leave them but she accepted them and stood by them and transform them.

True Acceptance is accept yourself the way you are, don’t compare yourself with others and then only you can fly high…..she taught this kids also the same things by asking them to write what they are scared of and then asked them to make a paper plane and fly it in air…..

Easy simple Activity but that’s the Real meaning of Life.

Why am I writing all this, you must be wondering…

I am writing this as even I was never accepted for what I am ~ neither as a child nor as an adult with the healing profession by few but nothing stopped me as I accepted myself competely as I am….

Yes I am not smart enough.

I am not expressive enough.

I can’t carry myself well enough.

I don’t have sense to speak.

I don’t have a Goal, neither I have long term vision….

I live one day at a time and just do what my heart says and yes God has been kind enough to bless me with success cases through my Intuitive Training and Therapies.

I am blessed to have a supportive family.

I am blessed to have clients who love to call me Didima, Di, Baima etc etc…..some have made me their daughter and some mother and some sister and that’s complete acceptance.

Divine Acceptance
