  • friendly,
  • outgoing and enthusiastic
  • affectionate
  • articulate
  • tactful
  • highly empathetic but easily hurt

Needs

The ‘why’ of any situation or idea. Must be given information in a way that adds to their feelings of comfort and security. Allow them time to develop a ‘feeling’ for what you want them to do.

Best approach

Be kind, caring, considerate, and be fully aware of their need to get a feeling for what you want them to do. Speaking with sincerity, using a quiet tone will encourage them to listen and want to cooperate.

Want to impress

Let them know that you care, this must be sincere. A high-five or a pat on the shoulder can make a world of difference to how they feel. Tell them a good joke and have a good laugh.

Danger zone

Never threaten or intimidate this type. Never attempt to make a fool of them or cause them to feel stupid. Keep your conversation friendly. Don’t push them to answer your questions should they choose to be quiet – they are usually processing thoughts and waiting to get a feeling for what is being said. Confrontation or a manner that is rude and insulting simply closes them down.
