In an era of increased transparency, how to become a formal person?
According to some people, informal forms of social interaction are the new formal forms of communication.
But for others, formal forms are an indispensable part of a person’s identity.
The American Academy of Religion’s Bethany A. Cohen says the term formal refers to the way people speak, act, and dress.
“For me, formal is not a neutral word,” she said.
“It means you are a person who is defined by the way you behave.
It’s the way that you are.
It also means that you act in ways that are accepted in society.”
If you’re trying to be more formal, Cohen recommends learning to be comfortable in your own skin and using a form of formal writing that is less formal and less formalistic than your social interactions.

For a casual society, it can be challenging to do so.
“The word formal, by definition, is someone who is in control of their own behavior and not someone who has a rigid social code that says you need to follow certain rules,” Cohen said.
If formal forms aren’t for you, you can still be informal.
For example, if you’re interested in learning to become an artist, there are some online courses that teach people how to make their own art.
But, as Cohen points out, being a formalist can also make people uncomfortable, especially if you’ve always been a formalistic person.
“If you were always going to be an actor, you would probably be a bit nervous about the idea of learning to do that,” she added.
One way to be less formal is to be open to new people.
“The best way to do this is to have the ability to accept people,” Cohen told ABC News.
“People are very curious about who you are, and it’s nice to be known as an open person.
People who are more open will be less likely to be aggressive toward you or confront you.
It is not necessarily a bad thing.”
A formal society also means you need more space.
Cohen suggests people try to be as informal as possible.
“I think that being formal means that the world is not just about you and me, but that there are lots of people who are in the world,” she explained.
In fact, you don’t have to limit your interactions to only one or two people at a time.
There are many social situations in which you can be a part of, including group gatherings and parties.
According to Cohen, being open to others is important for a person to have a good time.
“There are lots and lots of things that are very important to being an open, communicative person,” she continued.
“Being comfortable with the ways that people react to you, being comfortable with how people treat you and your personality.
Being comfortable with being different.
Being willing to explore.”
