    I can't really pinpoint what makes someone likable to me, its just a sense I quickly get. A lot of people that seem warm and friendly have an instant positive effect on me, but its not always a quantifiable "warm and friendly" of smiling and cheerful, sometimes its more like an aura I feel rather than some behavior I can observe and point to. As an example, I can sometimes look at someone that everyone else sees as "the grouch" and just sense an aura of warmth that is behind the mask they show everyone else and find them likable, and those impressions are nearly always validated over time, so if/when I get a strong initial impression about someone I've learned to trust it even if I can't clearly explain why.

    If someone does not make a strong impression on me, things like a visible sense of curiosity (openminded and wanting to learn new things or experiment with existing things/ideas), subtle and creative use of language (nuance), enthusiasim for any shared interest or a sense of humor that either demonstrates wit, intellect or creativity/originality (I'm particularily fond of dark cynical humor that requires some though to understand) do go along way toward winning me over. Of course finding somoene that seems to think like me also makes someoen likable to me too but thats another "just a feeling" sort of thing.

    Protean, you really go for the humdingers.

    Every human being alive has their own individual criteria. There are aggregates, but that's all. What one person appreciates, another may despise. What said two people appreciate and despise, respectively, may very well be the same personality trait. One man's confident is another's cocky. One man's kind is another's sappy.

    So here's what being an iNtuitive will net you: in the end I have, through rigorous thought and reflection, arrived at what every after school special will tell you: there's no accounting for taste, so to hell with it. To the extent that it doesn't hamper other people's self-being, Just Be Yourself.

    There are lots of common things people are drawn to that ARE mutually exclusive. Like being mysterious, reserved and 'hard to get' can attract someone. And that same person will also be attracted to someone else who is really larger than life and forthcoming and honest.

    Generally you want to be around people who 1) make you feel good about yourself 2) seem to 'know where it's at' either style wise, information wise, gossip wise, etc. 3) validate you. 4) pique your interest

    The above 4 can cover A LOT of ground.

    I like most people.

    And so, to be 'likeable', all you have to be is not annoying and clingy. Clinginess is pretty much one of the only things that will make me avoid you. But those I've categorised as annoying initially have, in many cases, won me over as I've gotten to know them better.

    I don't know/care about 2 or 3, but I think 1 and 4 would be sufficient.

    Actually the stuff I said here is way too ambitious and demanding for me to just think of someone as 'likeable'. If someone had all those qualities I'd think they were totally awesome and want to be their best buddy.

    To be just likeable though, I suppose polite and friendly are enough, for me.
