Showing Appreciation—ENTJ

Showing Appreciation—ENTJ

In this series I’m delving into how each of the 16 types approaches being thankful. If you want to read a little about your own preferences ahead of time, feel free to visit this link:

Today’s type: ENTJ. You may not proclaim your appreciation of others, though you rely on and expect more from people you deem competent. Offer them some praise.

That description relates most to the Intuition and Thinking processes of this type. Competence is often one of the most important values for individuals who prefer ENTJ (this is also the case for INTJs, INTPs, and ENTPs). As I have suggested in some previous posts, in your calendar add reminders to offer praise (genuine only) to people in your work and personal lives. Doing something competently is just one reason to be praised. Being someone who makes a difference in other people’s lives is another.
