You’re an even-emoter. You are somewhat emotionally expressive of both positive and negative emotions. You can get visibly excited but you also hesitate to show your emotions.
Your main opportunity: Focus on understanding what types of situations make you feel comfortable expressing your emotions, and what situations don’t.
You’re an emotional self-care fair-weather protector. This means you to set up good rituals for self-care, but they only work when you’re in your normal routine. You may feel uncomfortable pushing back against more work, even when you’re feeling burnt out.
Your main opportunity: Focus on making your healthy rituals work for you even when you’re stressed or traveling. Don’t feel uncomfortable asking to leave at a reasonable hour or asking for a night off. Try taking mini-breaks for meditation or exercise, no matter where you are.
You’re an in-the-moment feeler. You rely on your feelings in the moment to make a decision. You want to understand how you’re feeling about the decision in the moment in order to make the best decision.
Your main opportunity: It’s helpful to pay attention to your emotions for decision making, but remember our rule of thumb: keep relevant emotions, toss irrelevant emotions. Relevant emotions are directly tied to the choice you’re facing (e.g. regret or thrill when thinking about making a move). Irrelevant emotions are unrelated to a decision you’re facing, but they like to stick their tentacles into the decision-making process. (e.g. feeling hangry). If you’re focusing more on irrelevant emotions, try to zero in on relevant emotions.
You’re a people pleaser: You don’t seek out conflict, but when you’re a part of conflict, you will engage in it, in order to smooth things over and maintain good relationships.
Your main opportunity: On the plus side, you’re an accommodating diplomat, so you can help those around you to work through conflict. Remember not to end conflict too quickly. If you make people compromise before they are ready, they won’t feel satisfied and may feel resentful.
