-sincerity
I think being genuine is what makes someone easier to trust and get along with.

I find someone a lot more likeable when I first meet them if they show a genuine interest in me and don't just want to talk about themselves. Smiling and having open body language helps too. It's lovely when someone actually seems legitimately happy to see you and clearly enjoys your company.

I'll tell you what makes someone extremely unlikable: self-pity.
