The way people see us is a direct result of our own personality traits and character. That is how we come across to people who form their opinions about us. Through such observations people decide within themselves if we are approachable, attractive or someone to avoid. There are certain personality traits which make us less attractive to other people and there are some that make us highly attractive. The problem is we might not even realize that about ourselves but it helps to get a tip to be more attractive to others. So here are those personality traits that make you less attractive to others.

1Stress

Women having a high amount of stress hormones or cortisol in their bodies are less attractive to the other gender. Plasma cortisol is negatively related to facial attractiveness of any female. It shows low immune responsiveness to a male testosterone guided instinct. Therefore, a scowl on the face will never get you what you want but a smile would.

2Dishonesty

Lying is one of the basic reasons for a person to be branded unattractive as they are not reliable or trustworthy. According to a research honest people are perceived as healthy fit, kind, feminine and attractive to a man. It increased a general acceptance from a bigger audience too.

3Sleep deprivation

Research has shown that a sleep deprived person looks exhausted, unhealthy or unfit. Also, they trigger certain social cues as well like irritability, aloofness and more solitary behaviours which obviously makes the person appear unattractive to their peer group.

4Being mean

It’s really a no brainer; no one likes a mean person. But it has been scientifically proven and it’s called the “Halo Effect” where in studies, neutral pictures of individuals were taken and just underlined with positive remarks like kind, funny or smart, and the same set of pictures were given bad remarks like rude, nasty or unkind. People directly chose the pictures with positive remarks although the 2 pictures were the same. It just hammers the fact that “what is good is attractive”.
