Today I’m sharing a topic I enjoy from my private English lessons – personalities and characteristics. This episode is vocab-heavy and hopefully, you’ll learn a lot! Feel free to answer the questions I give today in the comments here.

When you meet a new person, do they grow on you over time, or do you hit it off right away?

Are you humble or egotistical?
