8 Ways To Differentiate Fake From Genuine People

Read these hints that can tell whether a person is worth-befriending or not.

Our elders would always advise us to surround ourselves with good people who can help us through life, and discard all the toxic ones who drag us down. Since it is our nature to easily adapt to our surroundings, it makes sense to hang out with people sporting good values so we might soon duplicate their ways. Likewise, being with bad influences can mold us into equally evil-minded people. But how can you tell whether you are with the right or wrong group?

It can be hard to tell right away whether a person is genuinely good or just pretending to be one. The sad fact here is that you will only see someone’s true colors during adversities when it is already too late to get back the trust you’ve given.

Building friendships is almost a life necessity, but you have to be careful on investing your trust. The good news is that there are ways to easily determine whether a person is fake or genuine. So look at these pointers that can help you run away from the wrong people.

Respectful vs. Lofty


Someone who’s genuinely respectful will show respect to everything and everyone at all times. They always take a person’s feelings into consideration regardless of their status in life. They will also do everything in their power to make others feel comfortable. On the other hand, a fake person will show respect only to those who are in power. Because of their desire for any gain, they are ready to put up an act to please people in ranks and later enjoy the benefits of doing so.

Meek vs. Recognition-Seeker


Genuine people don’t require any recognition for the favors they do for others. Their sole purpose for helping is to make others happy. Yet again, they don’t need to do the extremes to please others, but if they do, they don’t go out announcing their acts. Fake people do the opposite. They will help you with anything but will talk about their deeds so others can recognize them and praise them endlessly.

Hidden vs. Spotlight


There’s nothing wrong with staying in your personal corner to enjoy your privacy and comfort. Genuine people will not go complaining about being alone and those who are around them can respect and understand their private time.

On the other hand, fake people will throw tantrums when the spotlight is taken away from them. These people are attention seekers and would do anything to stay on top of the crowd. They ridiculously believe that the world revolves around them and only feel satisfied when they see all eyes are on them.

Humble vs. Narcissistic


Genuinely humble people will never brag their achievements to others. Although it’s nice to be recognized for achievements, they will still prefer not to talk about their winning moments and would rather hear success stories of others. Fake people will desire otherwise. They want to be recognized for their achievements so they will talk about their stories to others, sometimes, more than once. They want to take the center stage so they’ll keep on bragging their assets at all times.

Honest vs. Backstabber


A genuine person never plays backstabbing games. They hold on to their respect for others so they will tell their concerns directly to the person involved and will hope to resolve any issue that arises. A fake person will avoid confrontation. They don’t like to confess their issues so they smile at their enemies but will talk about them the moment they turn their backs. They love to gossip about others and enjoy drama.

Walk vs. Talk


A genuine person will try not to break a promise. But if they can’t avoid doing so, they will take responsibility instead of giving excuses. A fake person, on the other hand, will give big promises but will rarely fulfill them. They won’t feel sorry for upsetting others who hoped for what they promised and will come up with a long list of excuses instead of why they can’t walk their talk.

Contented vs. Perfectionist


Good people accept their imperfection and will thank others who try to impart new lessons to them. They are grateful to those who help them gain new knowledge as they love learning something new. Fake people despise others who make them feel less than perfect. They aim to look at others’ mistakes so they will have reasons to criticize them.

Real Friendship vs. Friendship For Benefits


Genuine people make friends simply because it’s in their nature to be friendly. They help others without expecting anything in return. Fake people only want to be associated with people they can benefit from. This is their interpretation of surrounding themselves with good people. Instead of finding friends who can help them develop a better character, they only accept those who have the power to return favors.
