Appreciating People with Thinking Preferences

Appreciating People with Thinking Preferences

By Donna Dunning

Donna DunningSometimes in workshops I have groups report out on what they want to receive appreciation and recognition for and how they want to receive it.

A group of participants with Thinking preferences made this poster.

They mention more competencies and abilities than the Feeling group did (see last week’s post), such as intelligence, doing something better, objectivity, impartial approach, expertise, and troubleshooting.

Notice that occasional affirmations are appreciated, but how they prefer to be recognized is with things such as money, increased responsibility, autonomy, status, and being consulted. These kinds of things were not mentioned in the Feeling group.

Reading the points mentioned in this poster may help those who prefer Feeling rethink how they affirm those with Thinking preferences.
