Unlocking Your Real Personality

An inhibited personality (shyness, nervousness, awkwardness etc.) is a muffled expression of your true personality. The cause of an inhibited personality is caused by an overly sensitive mechanism to negative feedback, or by excessive negative feedback. The purpose of negative feedback is to tell the mechanism to correct the course and move towards the target in the right direction. If the reaction from negative feedback is too great, you are likely to concluded that not only you are off-course but also it is completely wrong to move forward.

Stuttering is an example of an inhibition caused by excessive negative feedback that inhibits speech. If one is overly critical of his own speech or is too careful in trying to avoid errors in speech, stuttering is likely to result.

In any social interaction, there is the sending and receive of feedback data. Facial expressions such as smiles or frowns and body language is a form of feedback that tells us how we are doing whether we are building a deeper rapport with the other party or we are moving apart. The more we are overly too careful in our social interaction, this will inhibit our communication with the other party.


1) Don't worry in advance what you are going to say. Just open your mouth and improve.

2) Don't plan and think before you act. Act and correct your actions as you go along.

3 Stop criticizing yourself constantly. Useful negative feedback is automatic, spontaneous and subconscious.

4) Make a habit of speaking louder than usual. A powerful voice is a great disinhibitor.

5) Let people know when you like them. Compliment people. This will free you from inhibitions.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
