Characteristics Of A Compassionate Personality Trait

What are the characteristics of a Compassionate personality? What
are the traits you see in people that are Compassionate in attitude and person?
To have compassion is to care about someone and their situation.
How can you tell if you truly have a compassionate personality? One of the
signs is empathy because that is how people like this behave. If you can sense
the emotions of those around you, and feel their feelings as if they’re your
own, you can intuitively see the world through their eyes and share their
perspective. People with compassionate personality understand, and feel
compassion, and this is powerful. An empathetic and compassionate person can hear
the unasked questions, and can anticipate the needs of others.  
Compassionate people are givers who never expect anything in
return. They are normally referred to as kind hearted people who have a belief
that what you give to the universe is what you get in return. This is often
referred to as karma.

That You Have A Compassionate Personality

People with
Compassionate Personality Do Not Judge
If you’re trying to decipher whether you’re truly compassion, some
considerations are that the judgment level is non existent, meaning your
judgment on the situation is not driving your response, said Lisa Bahar, a
marriage and family therapist.
If you’re compassionate, “You are less inclined to tell
someone what to do, and are more interested in their experience. If they ask
what you think that should do, then respond. However, that is not the main
idea. Compassion is seeking and wanting to understand,” Bahar said.
“You feel connected to others experience, not in a
co-dependent way, but in a healthy connective way of being human and understanding
or wanting to understand what it must feel like for them. Having an innate
feeling of wanting to see them not suffer, it sometimes hurts or feels sad when
you are in the presence of one that is experiencing a situation that is causing
them pain. This does not mean you take the pain on, it means that you can feel
the connection to them in a humanistic way that feels gentle and kind,”
Bahar said.
When You have
a Compassionate personality You Will Pay Attention To How You Treat Others
“The number one way to tell you have a compassionate
personality is to notice the way you treat yourself when you make a mistake or
encounter some imperfection in yourself,” said Posy Gering, author of The
Next You, Discovering Confidence, Calm and Courage.
Other Common
Traits You See With Compassionate Personality
Tiffany Vigil, a marriage and family counselor, shared her four
traits that are common in compassionate people:
Conscientiousness. People with compassionate personality take the
time to be aware of those around them. They are the ones that smile at the
stressed-out mom with the crying toddler in the checkout lane and ask if she
wants to go ahead in the checkout line. They hold the door for someone whose
hands are full. They stop and give specific directions to the lost traveler. That
is as compassionate as people like this can be.
Nonjudgmental nature. People with compassionate personality tend
to view others in the context of the human condition. They don’t judge or blame
a person in distress. Instead, they hold on to the understanding that we all go
through tough times at some point in our lives. For example, when a
compassionate person sees a homeless person, they may think about the journey
that got them to where they are instead of belittling or judging them.
Emotionally centered. One trait of people with compassionate
personality is that they are generally emotionally centered. They may have
moments where an injustice in the world pulls them into emotions of despair or
outrage, but they have a tendency to bounce back into a place of calm action.
They think, what can I do to help this situation? How can this situation be
transformed so that people come together?

A sense of the bigger picture. Some compassionate individuals may
have a spiritual practice such as meditation, prayer, or involvement in a
religious community. On the other hand, some may not be spiritual at all, but
have a way of connecting with the broader human spirit through art, music, or
shared goals. Compassionate people innately understand the connection between
humans and have a desire to better the human condition.
