How to understand somebody like me

First of all: who am I and why do you need to read this text? To say briefly, I am a creative and ambitious person with an aptitude for extroversion. I will be upset if you do not talk to me and also I get sad if you start talking with me brutally. I will dislike you if you oppress or underestimate me, but… You can be a good bro, if you understand my feelings and wishes from communication.

This listicle is created for those who are interested in understanding people around them or just in understanding me. Also, from this article, you can learn some information about human psychology: behavour, actions, reactions, etc.

1. Recognize different personality types

You will be able to understand people better if you estimate  what type of personality they seem to be. Determining, at least approchimately, what type of person they are will help you understand why they say and do   different things.

2. Use the Big Five or OCEAN approach.

This method looks at people’s Openness, Conscientiousness, Extroversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. By observing whether or not a person has these traits, you may have a sense of how willing someone might be to try something new, work with a group or team, or even start a quarrel or a conflict.

3. Meet people’s needs 

Once you recognize the person’s personality type, you may have a better idea of what to say, when to say it, and how to say it. You may better understand how to engage the person and respond to him or her in ways that meet her or his emotional needs and your goals.

4.  Develop empathy

This means putting yourself in another person’s shoes. When you can empathize with someone you can understand what she or he is feeling and his or her perspective, even if you don’t feel the same or have the same opinion. Some people are naturally empathetic, but others aren’t. But it is a skill that can be developed and improved with practice.

5. Explore your personality

Understanding your personality, even on a basic level, can help you understand how you think and how you understand others. For example, knowing that you are a more open and playful type will help you understand that your colleague isn’t mean; he is just a more powerful personality type.

6. Watch for Physical Movements

Body language and distance — Observe where people lean. Generally, we lean toward those who we like and away from those we don’t.
Crossed arms and legs — This pose suggests defensiveness, anger, or self-protection. When people cross their legs they tend to point the toes of the top leg towards the person they are most at ease with.
Hiding one’s hands — When people place their hands in their laps, pockets, or put them behind their back it suggests that they are hiding something.
Lip biting or cuticle picking — When people bite or lick their lips or pick their cuticles they are trying to soothe themselves under pressure or in an awkward situation.
