Five Basic Personality Traits To Become An Armed Forces Officer


Candidates who are aspiring to join the armed forces often wonder about the kind of personality the should possess. We will discuss five basic personality traits which a candidate should inculcate to achieve their goals.

Success and achievements in life is an outcome of how well you can influence others. Ultimately, it is your demonstrated personality that will dictate whether people will be attracted towards you, or will repel from you.

Therefore, considering that our projected persona is so vital, we need to understand as to what makes us impressive.

Five Steps to a Magnetic Personality:
1. Be Well Groomed

It implies that you must project a classy physical demeanour, which includes your turnout & bearing/posture, physical fitness, mannerism and the pride with which you carry yourself. You must stand out impressively in a crowd from the way you walk, talk and present yourself. You must at all times appear happy, alert, dynamic and full of positive energy.

2. Be Well Informed and a Good Listener

Read a lot and cultivate new and varied interests, expand your horizon, so that you can effectively participate in conversations. Your conversation must be interesting and to the liking and interest of the audiences. Always give a considered opinion when interacting and do not be tentative in your replies. Simultaneously, be a keen listener so that you make others feel important and wanted.

Step-3: Be Sensitive and supportive of Other

Treat others with respect and dignity. Give them space and do not be rude or intrusive. When we show interest in others it wins their trust. Be humble and down to earth and encouraging in your attitude. Never belittle or make fun of others that may hurt their feelings.

Step 4: Be Witty and Humorous

Everyone likes to be with interesting and lively people, so endeavor to keep the environment around your happy and buoyant. Always be keen to meet new people, share experiences and demonstrate high energy level. When you can add fun and lightheartedness to an otherwise dull or gloomy setting, others will naturally be attracted to you, not to mention grateful.

Step 5: Have a Positive Outlook and Attitude

Your body language and mannerism must exude positivity. Smile warmly, spread good cheer, and enliven others with your presence. Always count on your blessings, look at the glass half full, rather than saying it is half empty. Do not be a person who finds faults in everything around, but be the person who wants to make the change for the better, by being the change.
