What can you do to improve your likeability factor? I reveal a few tips in this YouTube video.
Another resource is the book, “The Likeability Factor,” written by Tim Sanders.
One of the concepts that Sanders presents is the Likeability Scale. The scale is numbered from one to ten with one being unlikeable, five being average, and ten being very likeable.
Historical figures such as Hitler or Osama Bin Ladan would be a one on the likeability scale. Those who rate from one to three are generally unsympathetic, rude, difficult, and concerned only with themselves.
Those who rate from four to six are considered to be of average likeability. They often allow their likeability to fluctuate with their moods and are often inconsistent and unpredictable.
People who rate from seven to ten are considered to be very likeable. American Presidents, John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln are known best for their likeability. Those with a seven to ten on the likeability scale inspire positivity in others, a reflection of their own attitude. It should be known that few people ever attain a ten on the likeability scale and those that do can still continue to improve their likeability.
Although likeability may fluctuate due to difficult times or other circumstances, it is important to remember that likeability can permeate every aspect of a person’s life. Likeability may come naturally to some while others will need to work at being likeable. Wherever you rank on the scale, my hope is that I’ve made you aware of the likeability factor and its effect on your career. Moreover, I hope that this knowledge will empower you to continue the journey to self-improvement.
Consider where you fit on the likeability scale.
