It is a well known fact that people who possess powerful personalities and strong opinions can be mistakenly considered as arrogant and dominant. However, this interpretation can be done only by small-minded and insecure people.
Some of them may consider you to be rude. Others will think that you are a dominant person. But, all these opinions are formed as a result of their fear from your incredible self-confidence and your strong traits.
Some people are scared of other people’s powerful personality because they simply can’t understand how is it possible for someone to be so comfortable with themselves without even thinking what other people think of them.
Below you will read about eight powerful personality traits that often scare some people:
They don’t seek for attention
These people are too preoccupied with working to achieve their goals and don’t have the time nor energy to spend on doing something that will grab the attention of others.
They emit self-confidence and determination. They firmly stand on the ground and don’t need anyone’s praise for their accomplishments.
On the other hand, although they are not attention seekers, still there are a lot of people who care, love and appreciate them. This is because of their charisma that often attracts a lot of people.
They are not trying to please everyone
Strong people never do anything to impress others, quite the contrary, they accept themselves as they are and work on improving their true personality even when others consider it as unfitting.
Of course, they never stop respecting the other people, but there is a difference between respecting others and underestimating yourself in front of others.
Strong people never hide their true personality, and if this scares you, you can feel free to leave.
They don’t tolerate excuses
They consider tolerating excuses as a total waste of time. They don’t have a problem with leaving their comfort zone and always try to make the best of it.
They hate meaningless conversations
For them, the usual talks about ‘what’s new’ or talking about weather seem unexplainably awkward. They enjoy having real, meaningful talks about feelings, the universe or the unknown. They need conversations that will stimulate their intelligence.
They can’t stand insensitivity and ignorance
They thoroughly dislike people who make hurried decisions and act before they even think. Strong people are supported by positive characteristics such as: thoughtfulness, empathy and awareness.
They stick to their morals
They stand firmly on the ground and nothing can throw them off the balance. No matter what, they always remain loyal to their morals and they guide them throughout life. No one is able to convince them to do something that doesn’t belong to their moral system.
They admit when they are wrong
Strong people never consider themselves as perfect, they know that they possess both good and bad qualities. If they make some mistake they won’t be childish and stubborn, quite the contrary, they will be honest and will immediately admit it.
They are not arrogant, they only have a strong attitude
Most of the people who know their value can be misinterpreted as being arrogant. Insecure people can be easily offended and act inappropriately toward the people who openly express their opinions. But no matter what the people around you think about you, you never even think of changing your personality.
