99 Most Common Neutral Personality Traits

neutral personality

Think of the last time you had to politely describe a person you didn’t quite get along with.

None of the traits you named were 100% positive, but none were negative, either.

The best word to describe them would be “neutral.” 

You like to think your delivery was neutral, too, but it probably wasn’t. (It’s hard to hide those feelings.)

Neutral personality traits can make others think you have an enigmatic personality.

Maybe you’re trying to hide something, or you like appearing mysterious.

But that’s not always the case. Sometimes neutral just fits the moment.

15 Of The Best Ways To Thrive With A Reserved Personality

attractive woman, reserved personality

Some people believe that having a reserved personality is a negative quality.

But the truth is, there are plenty of benefits to being reserved and many ways to thrive in life with a personality that is more reserved than others.

It can be hard to be the quiet one in the group, mainly because people assume something is wrong and you’re upset or that you’re quietly judging them.

But if you are reserved, you know it’s just because you enjoy listening to other people have a conversation and prefer to give input only when you believe it’s useful or necessary.

It’s not that you never speak, but most of the time the chatter is happening in your head.

Often reserved people are introverts whose natural personalities lend to a quieter, more thoughtful way of interacting. Does this sound like you?

Let’s talk about the personality traits of people who are reserved and some of the best ways to thrive in life with this type of personality.

Everything You Need To Know About A Social Chameleon Personality

social chameleon personality

The most significant advantage of being a social chameleon is the ability to blend into any social environment.  

They pick up on social cues and take on the personality traits of those around them.

Take a moment just to imagine a total lack of social awkwardness and how that must feel. 

(Yeah, I can’t either.)

If there’s a downside to this ability to “go native” in any social circle, it stems from the very thing that drives chameleon personalities to do their thing and blend in: the fear of standing out.

Internal Vs External Character Traits: 5 Key Differences

external character traits

What’s the difference between internal and external character traits?

If we’re talking fictional characters, the external traits are what you and the other characters can see or hear—stuff like hair color, height, clothing style, accent, etc.  

But when it comes to real people you know or have met, how do you distinguish their internal character traits from their external ones?  

And how much can you trust the first traits you see?  

What Are External Character Traits?  

External character traits in real people are similar to external traits in story characters; they describe what the people around them are likely to notice without knowing them.  

Think of traits you might notice in a person you barely know:  

  • Aloof  
  • Friendly  
  • Sarcastic 
  • Funny  
  • Prickly 
  • Confident  

Even the least appealing traits aren’t listed here as judgments. You don’t know these people yet. The traits listed above are just things you’ve noticed so far.  

Time will tell just how true that first impression proves to be.

ambivert vs omnivert

What do you make of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) when you don’t identify as either an introvert or an extrovert — at least not all the time? 

Maybe you’ve taken the test at different times and have gotten different results.

Or perhaps you can relate to the descriptions of both the I-leading and E-leading neighbor types (e.g., INFJ and ENFJ). 

And you wonder, “Am I both? Or am I something in between?” 

That depends on whether you see yourself as a hybrid or as someone who’s the introvert version one day and the extrovert version the next.

17 Top Reasons Why Intuitive Empaths Have A Gift

woman thinking, intuitive empath

Do you ever feel like you have a heightened sense of understanding and emotion for other people’s feelings?

Maybe you feel like you are really good at reading people or you simply have an inclination toward being empathic.

If so, you might be an intuitive empath.

Being an intuitive empath means you have a high sensory perception and can be impacted by other people’s energies.

You have an innate ability to perceive those around you.

But, being an empath is more than just being an especially sensitive person, and it isn’t limited to simply feeling and expressing emotions.

What Does It Mean to Be an Intuitive?

When someone is intuitive, they possess insight into someone or a situation without using cognitive abilities. They have a feeling of understanding or knowing something without using rational thought that’s typically involved in this knowledge.

It is often said that empaths are naturally intuitive, and while this is true for some empaths, it is not true for all. But, if someone is intuitive, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they have a lot of empathy. Some believe the words are interchangeable, but the two abilities are actually quite different.

Empathy is one’s concern with things other than oneself — the external world. It is the ability to sense the feelings and energy of other people and one’s surroundings.

However, intuition is the internal feeling one has to evaluate and understand a situation. While it still involves absorbing the outside world, the final component is very internal.

When empathy and intuition come together, a very unique ability is born, and those who hold this trait have a special gift.
