Hello I am Izza from Surabaya. After graduating from high school, I studied Japanese for about one year in Japan and entered International Program Degree in Nagoya University majoring in applied bioscience.

Talking about Personality (Berbicara Tentang Kepribadian)

Jika kita ingin bertanya mengenai kepribadian atau karakter seseorang, kalimat yang bisa kita gunakan adalah “How would you describe her personality? ” atau “What is she like?”

“She is tall” bukanlah jawaban yang tepat untuk pertanyaan di atas karena ‘tall’ digunakan untuk menggambarkan penampilan/deskripsi fisik seseorang.

Coba perhatikan ketiga pertanyaan di bawah ini yang tampak serupa, tetapi memiliki arti yang sangat berbeda:

  1. “What is she like?” Pertanyaan ini menanyakan tentang kepribadian dan dapat dijawab dengan “She is kind.”
  2. “What does she look like?” Pertanyaan ini menanyakan tentang penampilan dan dapat dijawab “She is tall and has small blue eyes.”
  3. “What does she like?” Pertanyaan ini menanyakan tentang selera/kesukaan/minatnya dan bisa dijawab “She likes watching movies.”

Contoh pertanyaan lain yang mengharapkan jawaban yang menunjukkan deskripsi kepribadian:

  • How would you describe yourself?
  • Are you similar or different to your brother(s)/sister(s)?
  • What kind of characteristics / personality types are your dream boyfriend?

Jawaban yang diberikan biasanya terdiri dari :

Subject (I, He, She, You, They, We) + to be (am, is, are, was, were) +adjective (kata sifat)

Contoh kata sifat (adjective) yang bisa digunakan untuk mendeskripsikan kepribadian (personality):

  • Active: suka beraktivitas
  • Bright: pintar
  • Cunning: licik
  • Diligent: rajin
  • Funny: lucu
  • Generous: suka memberi
  • Honest: jujur
  • Kind: baik, suka menolong
  • Lazy: malas
  • Optimistic: optimis
