There comes a time in our life when we are wondering about someone’s actions whether they are genuine or fake.
We meet someone who seems to be a really nice person, so we start wondering if they are really that nice or their niceness is fake.
Here are 6 things to consider which can help you distinguish between a truly genuine person and a fake one.
1. ACTIONS vs. WORDS
Genuine people always try to fulfill the promises they have made. Even if they need to work twice as hard – they will always do their best to always do the right thing in every situation and with every person.
Fake people, on the other hand, have only words as their weapon. They speak a lot, promise a lot, but their words and promises are meaningless. And when they fail to keep a promise (as they usually do), they will give you a bunch of bad excuses.
2. HARD TO IMPRESS vs. EASY TO IMPRESS
Genuine people are usually hard to impress because they have strong opinions about everything and they don’t try to please anyone. Plus, they are so comfortable being who they are that they are not bothered with someone saying something unpleasing to them. They know who they are and that’s what matters.
Contrary to them, fake people always say how impressed they are with something, how wonderful someone has made them feel and so on, only to gain some favors out of their surroundings. So, it’s clear that you cannot trust their sweet tongue.
3. HUMILITY vs BOASTING
Truly genuine people don’t like to brag about their achievements and success. They want to keep their private life and their work life for themselves. They are humble people and they don’t need to make a big deal out of their deeds and accomplishments.
Fake people are the peacocks in social groups. They brag about every (little) thing that they did (and sometimes even before they did it). They have an internal need for approval and validation from others.
4. LOOK OUT FOR ALL vs. LOOK DOWN ON ALL
Genuine people never look down on other people. They don’t try to appear superior to anyone, and they don’t allow anyone to make them feel like they are inferior to them. They respect everyone, and they respect themselves as well.
Fake people respect only those people that they find powerful. They are even willing to be inferior to them because they think they can get something out of it later.
5. TO THE FACE vs. BEHIND YOUR BACK
You will always know where you stand with genuine people. They communicate honestly their opinions. If they want to say something to you, they will sit with you face to face and they will say it without holding back.
Fake people, on the contrary, are two-faced people. They love gossiping and they say one thing in your face, and another thing behind your back.
6. UNCONDITIONAL HELP vs. SELFISH MOTIVES
Genuine people are true to others and to themselves. They will try to help you out with the same willpower that they help themselves. Whenever someone is in a dangerous situation they will try everything in their power to help you get out of it.
Fake people can exaggerate how they will do everything to help you – but they won’t do anything of the sort. They are selfish people, and you can’t expect any help from this kind of people. They will only help you if they have an agenda and they want something from you.
