Some say that you cannot judge people by their appearance. Actually, we all are guilty of that, because we all develop an opinion when we first meet a new person based on their looks. Of course, we get the real impression of the person when we actually talk to them and spend time with them, but the first impression might be the most important one because it is difficult to change that.
So here are 5 signs you should notice about a person’s appearance because these show their true personality:
1. SHOES CAN SAY A LOT ABOUT A PERSONALITY
Yes, there are some obvious signs such as Goths with black leather boots or hippies with no shoes at all. And of course, there are workers with dirty shoes and rich ladies with Louboutins. But a study that was published in Journal of Research in Personality (2012) found an interesting trend in the connection of shoe type and personality. For example, anxious and insecure people usually wear new and neat footwear to make themselves feel more secure and comfortable.

The study also discovered that people, who wear practical and comfortable shoes, are team players and they are great to work with. These people always consider other’s opinions as well and want to find a solution that everybody is happy with.
People, who are calm and organized like to experiment with more extreme shoes, that might not be so comfortable nor practical. The study showed a pattern, that aggressive people tend to wear ankle boots. Why? Who the hell knows. It is certain that our purchases are largely affected by our personality – are we practical or impractical? Do we seek comfort or beauty?
Do we agree to spend a fortune on shoes or just get something cheap? Even if you think that you are one kind of a person, your behavior shows your true self, so take a look at your shoes and think what messages are they sending out to others.

2. EATING CANDY SHOWS NICENESS
Well, this one is quite obvious. Eating candy makes people feel happy and relaxed, so they became nicer and friendlier to others as well. Also eating candy in public shows that you are easy-going and confident, a lot of people might think it is too childish or lame thing to do.
This is not just a hypothesis because there were actually conducted 5 different studies on this topic. All these studies showed that people, who prefer candy to other snacks, are more agreeable, considerable and do good for others.
These people are also less selfish than the ones who like salty snacks.
3. USING RIGHT ARM TO CRADLE A BABY SHOWS DEPRESSION
This is no secret that a lot of mothers suffer from depression after having given birth. This is caused by stress, lack of sleep and hormones. So look at old family pictures of your mother holding you or think how would you hold a baby now.
Most people would cradle a baby in their left hand (nobody knows why) but to be doing it with your right-hand shows that something is not quite right.
A research was made on this subject and it turned out that stressed and depressed moms cradle their babies in their right arm twice as often as happy and healthy moms do. The study also showed that it does not matter if you are a left-handed or a right-handed person. So next time when you see a mother with her baby, pay close attention and find out if they are truly happy or just putting up a show.
4. BULLY-LOOKING GUYS ARE ACTUALLY TEAM PLAYERS
We have all seen them in movies and in real life as well. Usually, the bully-looking guys have similar features and even the same kind of walk. They might seem arrogant and egoistic, but it turns out that they are actually nice and great at teamwork…if you stay on their side. They are straightforward and say things as they are. This might seem cruel at the beginning, but they actually do not think anything bad.
They are straightforward and say things as they are. This might seem cruel at the beginning, but they actually do not think anything bad about it. It is just their competitive personality and their need to win.
But this feature is actually good in teamwork, because they are willing to work hard and do everything they can to make the project a success. Behind the bully-looking appearance, there is actually a productive, hard-working, cooperative and kind-hearted person, who is willing to give scarifies in the sake of the group.
5. SYMMETRICAL FACE = RICH, ASYMMETRICAL FACE = LEADING
This has also been proven with many different studies and researches. The symmetrical face has been the beauty etalon from the beginning of times because it shows that the person is strong and healthy. Usually, people with symmetrical faces have grown up in privileged homes and have had a great happy childhood.
We might ourselves not notice that much, but all our actions influence our body as well. This includes smoking, drinking, working out and eating.
All the bad stuff leaves a mark on our body. We all know that the life of a pretty person is much easier than the life of an ugly person. It has been discovered that beautiful people get smaller punishments and more salary. They are also forgiven more easily and given more chances.
That’s just how it is.
But no worries, people with asymmetrical faces, because it has also been discovered, that you make great leaders. Maybe it’s because you cannot get away with stuff so easily and you actually have to work hard. If things do not come that easily for you, you learn to appreciate them more.
This means that you get other people as well and are not as selfish as people with symmetrical faces. The asymmetrical face is a sign of a great dominant personality, who can be an effective leader and motivate others to give their best.
So now you know that even the littlest things can actually tell a lot about a person. Think about what kind of signals are you sending out with the way you dress, the food you eat and the face you have. Of course, everyone of us is a complex system and it is not that easy to understand any of us completely by only looking at the appearance. Still, the looks can give many hints of what kind of person are you dealing with.
