How to be well-mannered? 5Traits of well-mannered people
Being well-mannered isn’t just about what you do, but about the mindset behind your actions.
Well-mannered people are polite and respectful to everyone they meet. They know how to treat others respectfully, even if they don’t agree with or like them. Well-mannered people might have high standards for themselves, but they don’t judge others based on those standards or make others feel bad about themselves. Well-mannered people don’t think they are better than others because of their good manners—they want to ensure everyone feels comfortable when they’re around. When you’re around people with manners, it’s not like they’re going around telling you how good they are at being polite. It’s just that they’re so comfortable being themselves that they don’t need to brag about it. It just comes naturally.
