The quality of your life and the strength of your relationships are the product of choice—but not only your choices. Your life is also determined by other people's choices. The choices other people make about you determine your health, wealth, and happiness. People choose who they like. They vote for them, buy from them, marry them, and spend precious time with them.

This term coined by Tim Sanders, in which he shows how to build your likeability factor by enhancing four critical elements of our personality:

  • Friendliness: your ability to communicate liking and openness to others
  • Relevance: your capacity to connect with others' interests, wants, and needs

  • Realness: the integrity that stands behind your likeability and guarantees its authenticity

Sanders says, when you improve these areas and boost your likeability factor, you bring out the best in others, handle life's challenges with grace, enjoy better health, and excel in your daily roles.
