We all have a special quality, a special highlighting quality that we excel in, that we think we are better at than others. It is some kind of ability, a power that makes us take charge over others. So guys, what's your USPs? What do you think makes you special?

Hi mimpi dear! Oh, I really don't know what makes me special or stands out from the rest.. I always feel that I am just a regular person. I know I smile a lot which people sometimes mistake me from a looney..lol..I am friendly yet I am always mistaken for a snob..but the truth is I am just shy! Oh alright..I am going to give my away my secret..I have a very special power--I can "Disappear" anytime! Take care and have a great day! lovelots..faith

Giving a thought on this makes me understand the USP's or the qualities in two different aspects. Those which we have from our proffessional lives and those that we have with our personal lives. Although it would not be correct to say they are different, some of them may percieved differently. Adaptability: - I find myself easily changing to situations and needs. These include those which require a change in the way i live, time and doing things which may be new. Responsible: - Whatever the task or action to be done, it would be be with the right sensibilities and ensure it gets done right down to the end. Loyalty and firmness: I find myself getting totally involved with very few things at a time. Once in then i mean what i say and will do what i say. Those who have my trust, I will not disappoint. I deeply care about the things which influence us and those around us and also care about those who reciprocate the same. I am ready to give my total self for those i care about while expecting very little in return. A lot of these qualities have come about by learning and experiencing the hard way. Although there is a lot to add, the more i say about my USP's will then sound like a brag. And on an informal note , I can really smile and with that innocent look on my face it's difficult to keep yourself firm and say No.

That's no way abragging. I think that pretty much a reflection of how well you know yourself, certainly you are not a member of a confused club which most people today are into. I, at times, find myself there and it's not a nice feeling, I tell you. Being responsible of what we do is the first and foremost criterion of knowing ourselves better and you are right there. Loyalty, I feel, is the best thing to possess today where everyone is pinching everone clueless and adaptibility is a great thing in changing world! I really appreciate your sense of values and wish that you never deviatye from those. Good luck!

Sure it's not a brag ?? I did think i'm saying a lot. We all have a lot of all qualities, but it's only through others that we recognise them and then develop them or be concious of them. Thanks for the wishes and good luck to you too.

I.I never blink at a subject in a party. In fact I think I can talk about anything to an extent. 2. I can be comfortable with any kind of person and good at making them comfortable too .I am very good at making them count on me. 3.I give respect to the people from all walks of life. For me a person is very very important and I always remember that every one has an ego. I tread very gently on this. 4. I am enthusiastic, never gossip, forget and forgive easily and live for the moment. But I know my responsibilities too and I care for the people who depend on me and do take good care of them now and forever. 5. I am very trustworthy. I always keep my word. Prompt on my payments. 6. I dress neat and look fresh always. 7. I am not flustered with the aura of the VIPs. I just can talk to anyone very casually. I strongly believe that each and individual is a special entity. 8. I always rise to the occasion. Lend an ear to the old and play with the children and make them feel that I am one among them. 9. I am not selfish. I am the first person to lend an helping hand in any circle I am in. 10. I am a good leader and an obedient follower too. I like to learn from anyone and anything. [b]"Spread a smile"

I no longer think that I have a USP Mimpi dear. I used to think earlier, that my jovial nature and open-hearted fun loving and fun providing ways were my USP S but now I do not believe it.

My response was relevant to a peronal characteristic that makes me loveable among a circle of friends or relatives.If you talk of unique strengths , I would say that my resourcefulness in managing difficult situations, motivation to learn new things and being inquisitive in learning are some of them. I have a way with my students too and this made me very successful as a freelancer [I had a tuition centre of my own whereI taught large groups of students-in fact ,I was so popular that I got an invitation [out of the blue] from my former college to be a chief guest in a meeting.

And you were telling you have none! I think, the power to stimulate and motivate people is an excellent thing to possess. You can actually live your drams through this! Why don't you channelise this to something you have wanted to, always. Good luck!

True and I have been channelising my talent to a different use here in this new place Having relocated I cannot keep pining for my old students and so I have started learnig MSWord and the computer vigorously and I have come a fairly decent way for a beginner.But my interaction with the outside world is only through mails and chats and mylot.com. But I am happy with my new found interest and all my time gets occupied in explorations apart from routine activities.

LOL! You are asking us to blow our own trumphet. I think my 'helping and caring' attitude towards others can be termed us my USP. It is not necessary that my USP always works. I am just like it and try to care about others and try to help others, when they are in need. I cannot term it as a unique quality, because I've seen this quality in many others. Final decision about my USP rests with others, with whom I converse and interact, because I think they are the better judge(s) than me.

I knew that Golgappi, so I am not surprised at all. You are very talented with beautiful thoughts and lovely rendition of those elevating us and ofcourse how can I forget your artistic talent! You are amazing, indeed master of all trades. My USP? I would love to believe that I never succumb against my beliefs and my conviction and to stay by it in trying times makes me very peaceful.

Such a virtue is bound to make one peaceful but to possess it , needs a positive mind and heart which you do possess.

I agree , its very tough indeed but when you reach a point from where you can lose nothing, it gets easier. Had it been a few years ago, I couldn't have done it!

Will power motivates us to even melt the stone and i think you are not Jack of all trades. You are a knowledgeable person that most humble too. I really appreciate you as a person, as a friend and most importantly as a human. Love you Riya.

I'm not sure what USP means hun but if we're discussing what we think our own strengths are personality-wise, I would say I am of a very helpful nature to friends and family - I will give up my time to help others even to my own detriment. This is something that my closest friends and family members tell me is not always good as I end up putting others first when I should be concentrating on myself or those who are closest to me. I find it difficult to say no when people request a favour of me. One example is that friends of friends will ask me to fix their CV/resume because they know I work in HR or help them fill out job applications or practice for job interviews... I also think that many people I know ask me for advice, even people years older than me, because I never tell them what they should do but tell them what I would do if I were in the same situation...

This doesn't come as a surprise for I guess I kind of know you a little bit by now. I think, I am like you and many times kind of get used by people but still that doesn't deter me from reaching out. I think the fact that you tell hem how you would have done had it been you is a fantastic way to see it! That makes you empathsize rather than been preachy.

Well, does smile count? Or I can't think of other qualities that would be my USP. I like to smile, to ppl whether I know or not. If unfortunately this one can't be counted, I will be really sorry for myself. Ok, I hear ppl say that I have a good sense for language and I can learn a language quick. I don't know if this is real coz I haven't learnt so many languages, just two foreign ones and is on my way of the third one, lol. But it's nothing to do with my current work, sadly.

I think, Smile's going to take you a long long way. It's an inherent quality that can tie a ribbon of happiness around people and make them happy. You are on of those few people who have the ability to smile uninhibited and that's certainly a great thing to happy. Love you and lots of smiles at you.

This is a great side of a personality. Even though it might appear bit cold at times you have a long way to go with this. This is more pertinent now when we are rushing forward to an undefined thing we call 'living well'. We have many kinds of people with rainbow of emotions but this one surely will take you and your family a long way. Good luck!
