Do you constantly find yourself taking care of everyone else’s needs before your own? Are you always feeling the need to keep people around you happy all the time? Feeling bogged down by the fear of being misconstrued or disappointing someone? Finally, are you also trying to avoid conflict-oriented situations? Well, if your answer to all those questions was in the affirmative, you might be a people pleaser even before you realized it. So for all those who might want to know if they have traits of a people pleaser, here are some of them:
1. You take care of everyone else’s needs before your own.
You believe in taking care of others’ needs first, while putting your own needs at last. Wanting to take care of others is not a bad thing, and if more people had even an iota of what you have, the world would be a better place.
2. You are bankable.
Whether it is volunteering to cover up for a co-worker’s night shift when they have other things to take care of, baby-sitting a friend’s niece or driving a friend to office when their car broke down, you are more than happy to do it. In short, you are bankable AF.
