We live in a world where most of the things we want are just one click away. From products to services, we can access everything on the web. What about the jobs we want to have — will they be replaced by AI soon? Experts say about 300 million of them will be. Change is the only constant in our lives and when it comes to jobs, we felt inspired to go back to the old times and see what were the most interesting occupations that have vanished or just turned into a nice read in a history book.
The eyes are linked neurologically to the brain. They may be called the windows to your soul metaphorically, but the eyes are the only part of your brain you can see from the outside. Researchers are continuously investigating how eye color influences behavior and perception, and have come to the conclusion that the color corresponds to certain personality traits.
There is the question of whether the best things come in small or large packages. The truth is, there are several studies that prove that height can predict personality traits related to a woman’s career and personal development. And whatever your case is, short or tall, both share differences that make our personalities unique.
We’re all curious about our ancestry and where we come from. In 2019 alone, a whopping 26 million people took DNA tests to find out their genetic makeup. But there may be another way to see where some of your ancestors are from. And that can be done simply by looking at different parts of your body.
As we pass our values and traditions to our offspring over the years, genes are nature’s way of ensuring that physical resemblance is also meticulously passed on. While some children end up being spitting images of one of their parents, others look like a mix of both. Either way, it’s fascinating to compare images of family members side by side, and some of them might leave us more mind-blown than we expected.
We might be staring back at ourselves in the mirror when we look at a parent or a close relative. We can resemble each other like 2 peas in a pod, with the exact distinctive smile or even the same mark on the exact same part of the body. What’s interesting is that we’ll get so used to seeing our look-alike all the time, we might not even notice the resemblance. Or we may even forget about it until we open our family photo album.
Animals’ personality traits shine through in the way they move, according to a study. Well, some pets’ behavior just screams “fabulous.” Whether it’s a dog who’s proud to roll out its tongue at people or a cat that stands like a meerkat, these furry buddies steal the show wherever they go.
According to a study, the shape of our faces could be linked to certain personality traits. The face width to height ratio has been linked to traits such as being a risk-taker, dominant, and even deceptive. Another study found that people with facial symmetry proved to be more extroverted. There are several different face shapes, including square, round, long, heart, and diamond.
People often associate different eye colors with specific personality traits. Even a study found that the color brown went along with being outgoing, green with being mysterious, and blue with being noble and sincere. Our attitude toward a person can be also affected by their eye color.
It’s a well-known fact that friends are important for our happiness. But recent research suggests that being unsocial is not something we should worry about because spending more time alone actually brings more benefits than we think.
Every dog breed has something special, a feature or personality trait that people often mistakenly use to talk about all breeds in general. But the truth is that every breed can be as unique as it is irreplaceable. Every dog breed is one-of-a-kind. For instance, take bull terriers. They have been feared for a long time because of their appearance, but that’s nothing more and nothing less than a very interesting feature of their breed that makes them special.
After many tests and lots of paperwork, researchers have noticed some connections between habits and personality traits. Punctuality, the way a person carries a bag, or how one attaches a roll of toilet paper can say a little more about character than you think. In fact, you can become a modern Sherlock Holmes and surprise someone with not-so-obvious conclusions based on their everyday habits.
Approximately 79% of people in our world have brown eyes, 8%-10% of the population have blue eyes, 5% have hazel eyes, and just 2% of people have green eyes. And in addition to these statistics, researchers have also tried to find personality traits specific to each eye color and have discovered some common patterns.
When we’re teenagers, we often feel self-conscious, and we’re afraid to do the things we want to do, fearing others will think it’s embarrassing. As we’re waiting to grow up, maybe in our 20s, we finally feel the most confident we’ve ever been. However, a study that analyzed research articles that covered around 165,000 participants found that our 20s aren’t actually the age when our self-esteem is at its highest.
Scientists discovered that most mammals are actually genetically more similar to their fathers. Many of us generally assume that children get approximately half of their DNA from their mom and half from their dad, but as it turns out, a father’s genes are more dominant. Despite the fact that genes from both sides are equally present in the child, they might act differently, creating an imbalance.
Shoes are just a small piece of our wardrobe but people pay a lot of attention to them. There’s even a study that shows we buy footwear according to our character. Extroverts and creative people might prefer bright loafers whereas even-tempered and flexible personalities may go for comfortable, neutral snickers.
Believe it or not, middle children are becoming extinct. Families around the world tend to have fewer children these days, usually sticking to 1 or 2, which means there are no longer middle children. And that’s a pity because not only do we think “middles” are cool, but Alfred Adler, a psychotherapist who developed the theory of how birth order shapes our personalities, shares the same opinion.
“You’ll understand when you grow up,” your parents probably used to say to you in your childhood. And we bet most of us did understand it years later, just like they promised. But what we were not warned about is that not only will we understand them, but we will probably act a lot like them when we’re older too.
There is some truth in the fact that pets and their owners eventually start to share similar personality traits over time. Sometimes, our little friends take off their “animal” disguise and start to demonstrate some “human-like” behavior. All we need to do is to capture these funny moments on camera.
With each passing year, Disney Studio revives its classic cartoon characters to give them a touch of modern flare. Artists Jirka Väätäinen from Finland and Fernanda Suarez from Chile also decided to re-imagine famous animated characters as real life humans and created a series of realistic portraits of Disney heroes and villains. We have to admit that our favorite childhood characters haven’t lost their charisma or their personality traits in the works by these artists.
Personality traits aren’t constantly stable, they can change. But despite this, even minor things can reveal what kind of person you are. For example, your walk can indicate your level of vulnerability while the way you hang toilet paper can say a lot about your assertiveness. Your choice can also clarify a lot about your personality.
Psychobiologist and Nobel Prize winner Roger W. Sperry found that the brain’s 2 hemispheres—left and right—function differently, and the way you think depends on which of the sides is dominant. Based on his research there are numerous tests that can determine your thought process and personality traits.
We all know that our blood system is really complicated, that’s why it’s important to take care of your heart and know your blood type. Unfortunately, many people don’t know about all the opportunities of our body.
Many people think that their personality traits are something that they received at birth. While some people are born with a good sense of humor and a lot of charisma, others might lack these features and find it almost impossible to obtain them. Taking the positive personality traits we do have for granted, we don’t always consider ways to develop and improve our own character. Nevertheless, it is possible and while some traits can be established quite easily, other traits require consistent and hard work before they really become a part of who you are. However, generally speaking, almost any positive personality trait can be acquired and developed to help you become a more attractive and successful person.
People often know more about others than they know about themselves. Psychological tests are an effective way to learn about oneself. Knowing about yourself and your personality will not only help you with your confidence but it will also alert you to situations where you might be vulnerable.
Sometimes it can be quite difficult to distinguish whether or not a person's intentions are genuine. Some people pretend to be sincere when they need something from you and if you don't want to find yourself in an unpleasant situation, you can pay attention to signs that can help you figure out what kind of person you're dealing with. The things to look out for are simple, but it is necessary to know about them in order to notice them.
Each person has their own preferences and everyday rituals but we rarely think about why they have these habits. We are used to seeing them as very ordinary actions, whereas our own habits (which may seem totally random) can actually tell a lot about the parts of our personalities we try to keep hidden.
The department of Physical Sciences at the University of Kent carried out a research project which identified the most attractive facial features for men and women. Bright Side considered this topic to be very curious and decided to compare them with the 6 most attractive personality traits. Because we know that real beauty is on the inside.
Scientists and physiognomists consider the lips to be one of the most important features to pay attention to when trying to determine a person’s character. We express our thoughts verbally and in so doing reveal something of our character and psychological peculiarities. We at Bright Side have decided to take a closer look at the shape of people’s lips to check just how accurately they reflect an individual’s personality traits.
