10 characteristics that make you unforgettable

There are some people who are unforgettable. They exude charisma and people want to be around them. They have this aura that attracts others to them like moths to a flame. What is it that gives them this intriguing energy? It’s all about how you make others feel in your presence.


Being open-minded

When others feel they can open up to you and tell you something without fear of judgement or rejection, it allows others to feel safe around you. When you are unforgettable, you are someone that others can trust. When you are happy to listen to other without judging either way, others feel they can let their guard down and be themselves with you. In a world where we have to keep up facades, this can be incredibly refreshing.

Being kind

Kindness can be hard to find in a world where we all have to look out for ourselves. Survival of the fittest comes to mind. Kind people give off a certain energy. A warmth emanates from them that selfish people don’t possess. Kindness shows a gentle nature and this is appealing to others.

Looking for the good in others

When you like people and can find the good in others, it makes you unforgettable. In a world where we hold on to stereotypical ideas of others, it makes a big difference when someone welcomes you for who you are without pre considered ideas. Most people have goodness in them. Perhaps they haven’t had a chance to ever show this but if you nurture that and believe that others have something to teach you, you can make time for anyone.

Genuinely listening to others

Life is so busy that we often don’t have time for others. When you spend time with someone and actively listen to them and treat them as if they are the only person in the world, you create an unforgettable experience for that person. They will never forget how you made them feel.

Liking yourself

Self-confidence is oh-so appealing. We love to be around someone who seems happy in their own skin. Have you ever met someone who just seemed happy with themselves? You want more of them – what is it about them that makes then like themselves and be so at ease with themselves. We all have hang-ups, even confident people do but they don’t allow their hangups to stop them from living life. Avoidance is the worst thing you can do – keep throwing yourself at the things that scare you.

Making others feel important/special

The key to being unforgettable and oozing charisma is to naturally make others feel special around you. Unforgettable people don’t continually talk about themselves. They love hearing other people’s stories.

Not taking life too seriously

Being able to laugh at yourself and see the funny side of life makes a big impression on others. Being unforgettable means that you can have a laugh about life and all the challenges we have to go through. Being fun and playful creates a relaxed atmosphere. Learn to laugh at yourself.

Being a natural giver

Unforgettable people give more than they take. They genuinely enjoy giving to others as it gives them pleasure to spread happiness and joy around them.


This is a biggie. Unforgettable people can tune in to others. They find it easy to read others and know when someone needs to talk or needs help in some way. Empathy means that you are tune with others and not completely self-absorbed. When you care about others (increasingly hard to find in this world) you create a dynamic that will leave others with a permanent impression. Being memorable isn’t difficult – when you genuinely care about others and are willing to give others the benefit of the doubt, you rise above the masses and become unforgettable.
