10 things you know to be true if you have a Big Personality.

Thanks to our brand partner, Hyundai

As a woman, being ‘big’ has always been seen as a negative. We have been conditioned to always seek to be less ‘big’ – to be thinner, quieter, more passive – to take up less space.

A big personality is something to embrace – the world has enough beige people. A big personality is full colour.

So how do you know if you have big personality?

1. You have no filter. You know this because people say “you have no filter”. You say things people often only think. You’re outrageous but you get away with it every time. Well, mostly. You can turn people into gasping goldfish in seconds. Admit it, you love it.

2. You have a massive handbag. Big Personalities carry lots of stuff – they’re always spilling out everywhere. A big personality needs a big personality handbag.

3. When you enter a room people stop talking. They offer you a chair. They say things like “Thank god you’re here, this party was looking boring!”

4. You laugh loud. Really loud. And a lot. At a comedy show you’re the one at the front who is really losing it. Your laugh makes other people laugh.

Remember that time you watched Bad Moms on the plane and you laughed so much you shot tea out your nose onto the guy sitting next to you? Most people don’t do that. But you’re not most people.

5. At a karaoke night you don’t care that you can’t sing. You’ll back up your mates with a bit of dancing. Who needs training? Ed Sheeran’s ‘Galway Girl’ is made so much better with an improvised Irish jig.

You let other people laugh at you at your expense. It doesn’t worry you because your self esteem is rock solid – you know who you are and you don’t need approval from anyone.

6. You’re known for your car. Being a Big Personality has you wanting people to LITERALLY see you coming. It might be your number plate or a signature colour.

Or just a vibe that only some cars have. Take, for example, the Hyundai Venue, which even has as its tagline ‘fits in anywhere, stands out everywhere.’
That’s me in a nutshell. A car should be an extension of your personality – so the Hyundai Venue, with its two-tone roof and chic and boxy exterior – gives off Big Personality Energy. And if you’ve got a multimedia touchscreen, leather seats and modes for different terrains, the impact is even bigger.

Big Personalities know how to make an entrance, and they’ve always got the wheels to match.

7. You talk to strangers. It’s one of your most gorgeous qualities. You aren’t someone who can ever walk past the suffering of another person.  You ask “Are you OK?”

You give buskers $20, you offer your couch to a mate of a mate who needs somewhere to crash, and you help people when they need it. A big personality is founded in generosity.

8. You’re an amazing organiser. You make things happen. A big personality has the energy to change things. A big personality doesn’t wait for other people to do stuff.

When you find out a friend is in trouble, you organise a fundraiser on the spot.

9. You’re the first on the dancefloor. You don’t need other people to hide behind. In fact, you know that saying ‘dance like no one is watching’? Well, for you that’s rubbish. Whats the point of dancing if no one is watching?

You dance BECAUSE people are watching.

10. They say ‘always the bridesmaid never the bride’. Not true for you. You’re always the bride – you can’t be in a bridal party in a matching frock because even when you don’t mean to you’ll be accidentally upstaging the rest of the party. Even if it’s just a rogue boob that has accidentally flown out.

Are you a Big Personality? Have I missed any qualities?
