Which is your favorite personality type to be around?  The People Factor: It’s All About Energy                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        By Sarah Kathleen Peck Ever been at a party and felt like you were completely exhausted? That you couldn’t stand to keep your eyes open for another minute, k 9 slim down dogs online review even though it was supposed to be an amazing party? Likewise, k 9 slim down dogs online review have you ever stayed up almost all night, k 9 slim down dogs online review focused and driven, k 9 slim down dogs online review surrounded by brilliant people and creative ideas? Energy comes in limited quantities. It is finite, k 9 slim down dogs online review it waxes and wanes, k 9 slim down dogs online review and it grows or diminishes based on what you are doing and who you are surrounded with. What dictates our energy? How do we capture these spaces that help us be amazing, k 9 slim down dogs online review and remove the events and things that deplete our energy? There are people, k 9 slim down dogs online review places and things that make me feel like I’m building my energy stores, k 9 slim down dogs online review that rejuvenate me, k 9 slim down dogs online review and help me to do my best work. Likewise, k 9 slim down dogs online review there are also people and places that zap my energy; that leave me exhausted; that make me feel as though I’ve waste my time and my energy – and my day – without getting anything useful done. While brainstorming in a coffee shop with a dear friend, k 9 slim down dogs online review we both asked each other how to deal with these different personality types as they come into our lives. People are exceptional – they are our number one resource – but not all people are helpful at any given project or time. How do you make decisions about how you spend your time – and who you hang out with? And more importantly, k 9 slim down dogs online review how do you say no to people and things that zap your energy reserves? Together, k 9 slim down dogs online review we made a map of the different types of people in our lives, k 9 slim down dogs online review and agreed that we would consciously try to say no to hanging out with people that didn’t help us in our long-term goals – or in our energy management. This system isn’t just about eliminating “Negative Nancys” and “Debbie Downers” (although every effort should be made to reduce their presence in your life). Understanding how people affect you means that you can do a better job matching what you need at any given moment to what your energy requires. Sometimes I don’t need to be around excited people. K 9 slim down dogs online review Sometimes I just need another balanced philosopher to do and create my best work. And sometimes I need to be more judicious about reducing the time I spend with people who don’t match my energy. On the energy spectrum, k 9 slim down dogs online review here are the ranges of personality types – from high, k 9 slim down dogs online review positive energy, k 9 slim down dogs online review to balanced and stable individuals, k 9 slim down dogs online review to strong negative energy. Do you identify with any of the following energy personality types? How do you bring these different personas into your world? And do you pay attention to how people make you feel?

The Positives

  • Buzzers. These are my excited electrons. K 9 slim down dogs online review People who are so thrilled to be around other people and in the world, k 9 slim down dogs online review talking with them is like getting a burst of inspiration. K 9 slim down dogs online review When I wake up in the morning, k 9 slim down dogs online review a phone call with them is better than coffee. K 9 slim down dogs online review They are my muses, k 9 slim down dogs online review my inspirations, k 9 slim down dogs online review my creatives. K 9 slim down dogs online review Like coffee, k 9 slim down dogs online review however, k 9 slim down dogs online review I can’t drink it nonstop each day – so they are better in quantifiable bursts.
  • Happys. Generally positive, k 9 slim down dogs online review seem to be happy almost all the time. K 9 slim down dogs online review People you would skip with, k 9 slim down dogs online review laugh with, k 9 slim down dogs online review enjoy being with. K 9 slim down dogs online review I have lots of these in my life. K 9 slim down dogs online review They aren’t as physically excited as the Buzzers, k 9 slim down dogs online review but they are generally happy and have a positive attitude about most things.
  • Wonder Listeners. People who can hear what you are saying without you saying it; who seem to listen to you with both their bodies and their ears, k 9 slim down dogs online review and who exude a positive radiance without necessarily saying or doing anything, k 9 slim down dogs online review are your Wonder Listeners. K 9 slim down dogs online review After hanging out with one of these, k 9 slim down dogs online review I leave feeling happy, k 9 slim down dogs online review excited, k 9 slim down dogs online review and inspired.
  • Coaches and Mentors. These are people who seem to have endless stores of hope and inspiration designed just for you. K 9 slim down dogs online review People who are genuinely interested in what you have to offer and how you are doing. K 9 slim down dogs online review The coaches and mentors are usually a check-in, k 9 slim down dogs online review once a week or once a month, k 9 slim down dogs online review and they offer their advice and wisdom to you in their interactions.

The Middle Balance (Balancers and Grounders)

  • Quiet Stabilizers. People who are refreshing, k 9 slim down dogs online review rejuvenating, k 9 slim down dogs online review and inspiring without being showy or ostentatious. K 9 slim down dogs online review Someone you can sit quietly in a park with, k 9 slim down dogs online review without talking very much, k 9 slim down dogs online review and leave happier. K 9 slim down dogs online review These people don’t toot their own horn, k 9 slim down dogs online review and likely don’t know how cool they are. K 9 slim down dogs online review Yet being around them is satiating, k 9 slim down dogs online review relaxing, k 9 slim down dogs online review restorative.
  • Feedbacks. People who tell you what you need to hear, k 9 slim down dogs online review not necessarily what you want to hear. K 9 slim down dogs online review These people can be mistakenly labeled as negatives, k 9 slim down dogs online review but they still have your best interests in heart and are actually looking out for you in the long run. K 9 slim down dogs online review Keep them around, k 9 slim down dogs online review but note the times when you aren’t up for receiving feedback and need encouragement instead – and seek them out when you need smart advice.
  • The Strugglers and Changers. There are people who are struggling, k 9 slim down dogs online review working towards change, k 9 slim down dogs online review and are sometimes frustrated or caught in-betweens. K 9 slim down dogs online review They are on their way towards becoming the person they want to be, k 9 slim down dogs online review and conversations with them are raw, k 9 slim down dogs online review open, k 9 slim down dogs online review inspiring, k 9 slim down dogs online review hard, k 9 slim down dogs online review and generally variable.These are my strongest friends, k 9 slim down dogs online review the people who open my eyes and listen to my shared experiences as well. K 9 slim down dogs online review We learn well together. K 9 slim down dogs online review To note, k 9 slim down dogs online review however, k 9 slim down dogs online review sometimes I don’t have enough energy to devote to these conversations, k 9 slim down dogs online review and it’s best to say No and save the date for another, k 9 slim down dogs online review more energetic time.

Negatives

  • The Repetitives and Non-Changers. People who are stuck in a problem that you’ve listened to for years. K 9 slim down dogs online review Their complaints are the same, k 9 slim down dogs online review over and over again, k 9 slim down dogs online review and they don’t bring anything new to the table. K 9 slim down dogs online review Each time, k 9 slim down dogs online review it feels like you’re stuck in déjà-vu, k 9 slim down dogs online review because you’re still talking about how to deal with their terrible relationships, k 9 slim down dogs online review bad work situation, k 9 slim down dogs online review or general malaise. K 9 slim down dogs online review To deal with these types, k 9 slim down dogs online review tell them, k 9 slim down dogs online review politely and firmly, k 9 slim down dogs online review that you don’t want to talk about their ____ problem anymore. K 9 slim down dogs online review “I appreciate all the struggles you are having with your job situation, k 9 slim down dogs online review but I’d like to not talk about that anymore. K 9 slim down dogs online review I know you are working hard on it. K 9 slim down dogs online review Let’s focus and talk about new things when we meet.”
  • The Fakes. There are people who masquerade as positives – the words they use are cheery, k 9 slim down dogs online review they tell you what they think you want to hear; they quote inspirational things and bits. K 9 slim down dogs online review But the substance is not there. K 9 slim down dogs online review And, k 9 slim down dogs online review more importantly, k 9 slim down dogs online review you are not rejuvenated by the words or the ideas in the way you are around Quiet Wonders or Listeners or Buzzers. K 9 slim down dogs online review Some people are obviously fake; others not so obviously. K 9 slim down dogs online review At the end of the day, k 9 slim down dogs online review what’s most important is how you respond when you’re around them.
  • Negative Influences. There are people who are wonderful, k 9 slim down dogs online review interesting, k 9 slim down dogs online review bright, k 9 slim down dogs online review and creative. K 9 slim down dogs online review And yet, k 9 slim down dogs online review for some reason, k 9 slim down dogs online review I am negatively influenced when I am around them. K 9 slim down dogs online review It’s not that they themselves are bad people – it’s that I make bad choices when I’m around them. K 9 slim down dogs online review For some reason or another, k 9 slim down dogs online review hanging out with them is not conducive to my success. K 9 slim down dogs online review These are the trickiest people to identify, k 9 slim down dogs online review because there’s nothing about them that’s bad or easy to rationalize avoiding. K 9 slim down dogs online review It’s how they influence you that tells you about whether or not it’s a good person to have in your life.
  • Toxic. These are the people who make you feel like shutting down when you’re around them. K 9 slim down dogs online review The people that drain you, k 9 slim down dogs online review that zap your energy, k 9 slim down dogs online review that are filled with negativity and cutting remarks. K 9 slim down dogs online review Most of us quickly eliminate these people from our lives after just a few interactions. K 9 slim down dogs online review They are easy to spot and identify. K 9 slim down dogs online review If you still have them around, k 9 slim down dogs online review ask yourself why? What do you benefit from being with a toxic person?
In each of these scenarios, k 9 slim down dogs online review the most important thing is how each of these personality types make you feel. It’s not about whether or not the person is a good or bad person – it’s about whether or not they are the right energy type for you. It’s important to note that not all people can fit neatly into each of these categories – often the dynamic relationships we have with others changes depending on who is interacting and what the objectives are. K 9 slim down dogs online review Sometimes my friends are Buzzing-happy, k 9 slim down dogs online review and other times they are balanced-stabilizers. Defining these personalities – and how you feel when you’re around different types of energy – has helped me in understanding why I leave feeling out of sorts from some interaction. K 9 slim down dogs online review In turn, k 9 slim down dogs online review it helps me decide what to do – and who I choose to spend time with – in the future. Relationships matter. Pay attention to how the people around you are making you feel.
