  • - [Narrator] Hey, Psych2Goers,

  • and welcome back to another video.

  • If you're new here, welcome to Psych2Go.

  • Can you think of some qualities that society

  • in general values very highly in people?

  • Selflessness, perseverance, respect, commitment,

  • loyalty, amongst others.

  • Each of these qualities is extremely important

  • for the development of society,

  • but it can be argued that the most important

  • and sought-after quality is honesty.

  • You might think that honest people can be found

  • at every turn on the street,

  • but studies have shown that 40% of adults lie

  • at least once a day.

  • Wait, what?

  • And although most of these accounts are

  • for small white lies,

  • it still counts as dishonest behavior.

  • This makes honest people that much rarer and valuable.

  • So here are seven revealing traits that honest people have.

  • Number one, you have strong beliefs.

  • How strongly do you defend your beliefs?

  • Even when these are a part of a minority,

  • standing by your beliefs and not being afraid

  • to share them with others are traits that you have

  • as an honest person,

  • you are not afraid to go against the trend

  • and you'll not change what your opinion is

  • simply because other people think differently.

  • Number two, you are thick skinned.

  • Don't take this the wrong way.

  • Here defining thick skinned is important.

  • Thick skinned refers to a person who is insensitive

  • or hardened to criticism, reproach, rebuff, et cetera.

  • Yes, really.

  • So how well do you handle criticism from others?

  • Are you someone who will feel down

  • after being criticized once?

  • As an honest person,

  • you'll often tell people things as they are.

  • And of course, people who don't like

  • what they hear will get defensive and come back at you

  • with insults or whatnot.

  • And this is why honest people tend to be thick-skinned,

  • to prevent being affected

  • by other people's defensive responses.

  • Number three, you have a calm and consistent voice tone.

  • Have you ever noticed someone constantly

  • raising their voice tone throughout a conversation.

  • That is a dead giveaway that someone is lying.

  • As an honest person,

  • you maintain a calm and consistent voice tone

  • when talking with others,

  • this is because you're not afraid of

  • what people might ask you.

  • Even when they're trying to accuse you,

  • you reply calmly while maintaining a consistent voice tone,

  • because you don't have anything to hide.

  • Number four, you don't care about popularity.

  • How much importance do you place

  • on other people's opinions of you?

  • If your answer is not much,

  • then this might be one of your personality traits

  • as an honest person.

  • You're not interested in being admired as the smartest

  • or most attractive or most interesting

  • because you know that it's probably not true.

  • You don't wish to waste your time and energy

  • convincing people of things like that.

  • Similarly, whenever you do good deeds,

  • you do them because you want to help.

  • After all doing good deeds only to become more popular

  • can be seen as fake

  • and completely goes against your beliefs.

  • Number five, you can come across as rude.

  • Are you someone who's not afraid to tell the truth

  • to people, even if it might hurt them?

  • As an honest person,

  • one of your main traits is

  • that you would rather tell someone the hurtful truth

  • than a pleasant lie.

  • Because of this, and considering that again,

  • some people don't like the reality of things,

  • you might come across as rude,

  • or like a person who doesn't care

  • about other people's feelings.

  • But in the end, even when people think you're rude,

  • remember that you don't have ill intent.

  • You're just being honest with them.

  • And most of the time people will come across

  • and acknowledge that.

  • Number six, you have close, meaningful relationships.

  • How easy is it for you to build meaningful

  • and strong relationships?

  • As an honest person,

  • you'll find yourself surrounded by close friends,

  • after all a strong and lasting relationship

  • bases itself on trust and honesty.

  • Would you rather be a close friend

  • to someone who gossips behind your back

  • or someone who confronts you when there's a problem?

  • You'll most likely prefer someone who's open and honest

  • about problems.

  • And most people will have the same preference

  • towards honest people.

  • This is why you're able to form close

  • and meaningful relationships.

  • And number seven, your movements are natural.

  • Sometimes the most obvious signs

  • that people can give are not verbal.

  • Have you ever talked with someone

  • whose body movement just didn't match what they were saying?

  • Similar to how you talk with a calm

  • and consistent voice tone.

  • You also move your body in a relaxed and natural manner.

  • Natural movements are obvious signals

  • that you're not afraid of getting exposed,

  • or that you have nothing to hide.

  • On the other hand,

  • someone who is lying will usually have a stiffer

  • and more unnatural movement.

  • So feeling completely relaxed when talking

  • and having your body language show that

  • is one of the traits of an honest person.

  • To conclude, honest people are harder to come across

  • than you might think.

  • But if you do, or if one of the friends you know

  • have these traits that have been described,

  • you can move forward, knowing yourself better,

  • as well as being able to tell honest people surrounding you

  • apart from people who will lie to you.

  • We hope we are able to give you some insight

  • into some of the traits of honest people.

  • Do any of these describe your experience

  • or did any of these points describe you?
