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: cpp.com/share.
Today’s type: ISTJ. Showing appreciation may not come naturally to you. Try to offer more positive comments to the important people in your life.
That description links to the “bottom-line” approach of people with preferences for ISTJ. Those who prefer Sensing and Thinking tend to want to get to the point. As a result, they might not stop to consider others they are thankful for as much as some would want. Of course, as we each develop, we should learn to understand the other side of our preferences. If your preferences are for ISTJ, you might find a much more openly appreciative approach to others as you age and develop. If you are not there yet, then now is as good a time as any to flex your approach when appreciating others.
This past holiday season reminded me of being thankful for the little and big things in my life. Read my last blog post to find out what I’m thankful for.
