When you meet new people you do not have to think about what to say as you can share your knowledge or your interests and get them indulged in conversation.
Be good listener- Most people listen with the intent to reply. Being a good listener is an important step towards achieving a more likable personality.

Body Language – Body language is just as important as your verbal communication skills. It tells a lot about yourself and helps people in making accurate conjectures about you. Everything including the way you walk, sit, talk or eat leaves an impact. Having corrected body language can do wonders for your personality.
Be yourself-All humane being are unique in some way and you are not exception. Though one can always look up to other people to take an inspiration from, but you should still remain your own unique self. Each one of us is different, we have our own sets of skills and flaws and trying to be somebody else gets you nowhere and just simply backfires. Trying too hard to fit in a new group or wanting to belong should never take your authenticity and singularity away. Never try moulding into another person but instead work on being the best version of yourself.
Be confident-‘Confidence’ is one important key to success. Being confident about you is the most important tip for personality development. Never doubt your capabilities and if there is something you need to work upon then put in all the effort so you can come over your fears and gain confidence. Read success stories or surround yourself with motivational thoughts or “encouragements” which can boost up your self esteem and help you in attaining a charming personality. Just everything you do, have faith in yourself and put in your hard work. There can be nothing more appealing in your personality than an incredible confidence.
Check your attire –It is said, ‘first impression is the last impression.’ The external appearance happens to be first good or bad impression. Skill and abilities are more important but attire plays important role too. It also gives you a confidence boost. Dress up in a decent manner. While flashy colors and too much body tattoos or piercings convey an unprofessional attitude, neatly ironed clothes make you look presentable.
