  • Let's begin the discussion of the

  • personality adjective.

  • Hi, everybody, and welcome back to Top

  • Words. My name is Alisha, and in today's

  • episode we're going to be talking about

  • what adjective describes your

  • personality best. So let's go! Charismatic.

  • Someone who is charismatic is perhaps a

  • good leader,

  • people are drawn to them, people want to

  • follow them, want to come to them.

  • Charismatic doesn't necessarily mean

  • that that person is a good person or a

  • bad person, just that they are very good

  • at drawing people to them. People tell me

  • that I'm very charismatic.

  • Boring.

  • Boring mean something that is not interesting.

  • So hopefully nobody calls you boring, if

  • you're a boring person, work on that.

  • Let's talk about cardboard boxes.

  • Reliable. Reliable, someone who's reliable,

  • someone that you can trust, or someone

  • that always does what they say they're

  • going to do. My best friend is very

  • reliable. Humorous. Humorous is

  • just funny.

  • There's a difference between funny and

  • humorous and silly, in terms of people.

  • Anyway, this is how i would break it down,

  • silly is like appreciates, just very kind

  • of childish stuff, or just enjoys

  • laughing; funny is like a slightly more

  • grown-up, funny, I feel like silly can be

  • part of funny, silly can fit into funny,

  • but funny is a little bit more grown-up,

  • maybe your make like the actual word

  • jokes, that are, you know, require a bit

  • more knowledge or a bit smarter; and then

  • humorous, humorous is like I feel like

  • it's a bit more pretentious. I hope that

  • my friend think that I'm a very humorous

  • person. The next word is energetic.

  • Energetic means you have a lot of energy.

  • I personally don't use it, if someone

  • says what's your best friend like? I

  • wouldn't immediately think he's

  • energetic, like, I feel like that's a

  • given

  • somehow, and when I say that's a given, it

  • means it's it's an already understood

  • idea. I would use energetic for something

  • you would not expect to be energetic, my

  • grandmother is very energetic, she hikes

  • mountains even though she's 80 something.

  • Lazy.

  • Yeah, you don't

  • want to be called lazy generally, it

  • means that you, maybe you're not

  • hard-working, you don't take care of

  • yourself, or you don't take care of your

  • responsibilities. Generally lazy is

  • not seen as a good thing, unless

  • you use an expression like, today is a

  • lazy Sunday. One of my co-workers is

  • really lazy, he never has his stuff done

  • on time.

  • Extroverted. Extroverted, it begins with

  • that prefix EX-tro, like ex, meaning

  • outside, so like extra, more information.

  • So an extroverted person is a very

  • outgoing person, they like talking, they

  • like talking to people, they want to go

  • out, and do all the things and be social

  • and go yeah! I like being extroverted on

  • this program. Introverted, the opposite of

  • extroverted is introverted. Introverted,

  • inside something interior ,they want to

  • not go talk to people all the time, or

  • maybe they just have a different way of

  • expressing their social skills. In

  • reality, I'm a rather introverted person.

  • The next word is indecisive. Indecisive.

  • Indecisive people drive me crazy.

  • This word means someone who is bad at

  • making decisions. I have a friend who is

  • very indecisive, she can't ever make up

  • her mind, I have to do it for her.

  • Easygoing.

  • Easygoing is a good thing to

  • be, generally, in my opinion. Easygoing

  • means you're relax, you'll just do

  • whatever, you're happy to just hang out,

  • if someone makes a suggestion, you're

  • cool with that.

  • Alright, fine, that's great for me, I'll do

  • whatever. My best friend is very

  • easygoing, he's cool to do anything.

  • The next word is naive.

  • So someone that doesn't have a lot of

  • experience in a topic, or even life

  • experience, could be considered naive. You

  • don't want to be called naive, the

  • suggestion with naive is that it's easy

  • to take advantage of you,

  • maybe you could be easily molded, or your

  • experience can easily be changed by

  • someone else.

  • So generally naive is not a good thing,

  • you don't want to be naive.

  • My friend was very naive and

  • got in trouble with a bad business deal.

  • The next word is artistic. Yeah, artistic

  • is a good word, similar to creative,

  • perhaps. Artistic is someone who enjoys

  • art, or enjoys creating things, so this

  • doesn't, it's not limited to, you know,

  • just art like paintings, you know, doing

  • good paintings or sculptures or

  • something like that. Any kind of creative

  • endeavor, any kind of creative work,

  • I feel you could use the word artistic for.

  • My aunt is very artistic, she can draw

  • very well. Enthusiastic. Enthusiastic, this

  • is similar to energetic, but it just

  • means you're excited about things, you're

  • enthusiastic about something usually.

  • Sports fans are very enthusiastic about

  • their favorite team. Friendly. Friendly.

  • I hope that you are friendly person, is

  • someone maybe that it feels easy for you

  • to talk to, someone that's chill, someone

  • that's probably outgoing, maybe a bit

  • extroverted is a friendly person. I went

  • to an event on saturday and everybody

  • there was very friendly, it was a fun time.

  • How would I describe my personality? God,

  • it depends on the day, man. The one that I

  • use lately is scatterbrained, but that

  • has a very negative connotation about it.

  • Scatterbrained, if you break down the

  • word scatter and brain, scatter means

  • to spread something randomly, brain

  • meaning inside your brain.

  • I have so many different things going on

  • that, like, I'm thinking about like this

  • job, and that job, this project, that

  • project, and I have to do this, and oh my

  • god, my laundry is not done yet, and what

  • am I gonna make for dinner tomorrow? My

  • god! I have to go running later tonight,

  • What I'm going to do? How many cups of

  • coffee have I had? This is what's going on

  • in my head.

  • Those are 15 words that you can use to

  • talk about your personality, or to talk

  • about someone else's personality. So you

  • can try and use one of these words to

  • describe your personality,
