    compliments on my personality would be nice but I don't talk to many people for them to compliment it lololol

    I do get random aesthetic compliments sometimes which can be nice.

    Personality, because I don't control my looks for the most part, and so it wouldn't even be a compliment to me, it would be to whatever the hell designed me
    you don't control your personality either, you know?

    Personality, probably, though I wouldn't say no to any compliment

    {apart from, "yeah you're kinda clever" ~ there's more to a personality than that}

    but you can control your behaviour which often gets lumped together with personality
    like I can choose how to behave with people, whether i'm a kind person, or a good listener etc.

    Looks.

    I feel like complimenting someone's looks is always somewhat of an awkward thing to do, so when people do it, it means they really mean it while complimenting someone's personality is easy by just saying oh you're such a nice person for example, which I don't find to be all that convincing. So yeah judging by that and my experience, I'd say I definitely have enjoyed it more when people have complimented my looks.

    Which one?
    My looks because although I know I am beautiful it's nice hearing it from other because personality is often complemented when looks can't be sad fact but is true normally

    looks because I'm vain and my self esteem is based on people finding me attractive

    Looks. I am happy making my own personality my own creation, trusting my judgement. Don't care about people's views much. Think I got it right. However with looks, I can't say I have it right, I have no idea what they are, so other's opinion,s like it or not, are somewhat relevant. I think I have ugly traits so when people say I am handsome it is very pleasing.

    Fair enough, but I don't think it's safe to base all your self worth on your looks.

    I think it depends tbh. I think that if someone you are not close to e.g an acquaintance, or a stranger, you tend to accept the compliment more than if a close friend or a family member complimented your looks as you know they are less likely to be lying to you.

    Yeah, I can understand why you'd base it on your looks alone, I used to do it to... till I released there is more to me than my looks
