Do you know how to take a compliment?
Today, we’re talking about one more way to take a compliment, according to the Energy Types in my Energy Profiling System.
We’ve been trained to dismiss compliments for a lot of reasons. Maybe you don’t want to look vain or arrogant. Or you might not even believe that a compliment can be true. That’s certainly the tendency for a fluid, flowing Type 2.
Watch the video to hear the one question almost every Type 2 asks when given a compliment. Then learn to accept those compliments and stop sabotaging your confidence!
Your questioning nature is a tendency that supports your natural gifts. You have a gift for bringing peace and flow to situations. Your attention to detail helps plans run smoothly. You are so good at this and we need YOU! Is it really true? Yes!
3 Tips to Receive a Compliment as a Type 2
- Gratitude is a great way to experience a compliment. Instead of turning your questioning nature toward the compliment itself, you can ask, “How grateful do I feel for the person who complimented me?”
- Your ability to make connections can get in your way if you assume compliments should apply to you in the past and the future. Remember what I said in the video about experiencing a compliment NOW.
- Sometimes, subtle Type 2′s feel awkward about stepping in to other people’s worlds to give them a compliment. Look for opportunities to compliment others.
