Your Shoe Choice
Your shoe says a lot about you. It is said that people who prefer comfortable shoes often have agreeable personalities. Those who wear ankle boots may be more aggressive. And ones who keep their footwear in immaculate condition are mostly like the anxious or clingy type.

You must have heard of this one at least once in your life. The way you shake hands is a non-verbal cue if you are confident and friendly or a bit shy. A strong handshake usually means you are outgoing and not too worried, while a weaker one might mean you are not as bold in making a first impression.

Your Email Etiquette
How you write emails can give clues about how you are as a person. Hard to believe, maybe, but true. Using a lot of “I”, “Me”, and “Mine” could mean you focus a lot on yourself, which is slightly narcissistic. Making sure your emails are perfect without any typos could show you like things to be just right.

Your Eating Habits
One of the best indicators of personality is eating habits. How fast or slow you eat can say a lot. Quick eaters tend to be people who are always reaching for their goals and can be a bit impatient. Those who eat slowly appreciate life more and have better control over their lives. Those who enjoy trying new foods are likely to be adventurous.

Your Spending Habits
How you manage money reflects your values and priorities. If you buy things without thinking, you might be someone who lives for the moment, is spontaneous, and self-indulgent. But if you are a careful spender, you are likely patient, observant, and think things through.

Good posture is not just about physical health but also mental state. How you stand or sit can show whether you feel confident. Standing straight means feeling good about yourself while swaying while standing can indicate anxiety and indecisiveness. A hunched-back often suggests low self-esteem.

Your Physical Movements
Subtle body language, like the direction in which you point your feet or the openness of your stance, can reveal your true feelings and intentions even more than words sometimes. Leaning forward and open hands indicate a connection, while crossed legs or arms suggest defensiveness or aggression.

How You Roll Toilet Paper
Believe it or not, whether you put the toilet paper roll over or under can show whether you like taking charge or are more laid back. If you place it overhand, you are probably assertive, while underhand means you are submissive.

How You Dress
