Today’s type: INTP. You may not naturally tend to offer much appreciation. Observe people and decide when more positive comments and actions are needed.
That description relates to the approach frequently taken by individuals who prefer INTP: analyzing the situation for logical consequences. As a result of constantly analyzing pros and cons, they may completely forget to stop and outwardly express their appreciation of others. As I have mentioned in a previous post, I have colleagues who will add a note in their calendar to remind them to thank people in their life more regularly. I’m not suggesting that you fake praise—when you do, others will know. But when you notice something others have done that you find helpful, try to make it a point to verbally show that you appreciate it.
