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, no rx nitrofurantoin even though it was supposed to be an amazing party? Likewise, no rx nitrofurantoin have you ever stayed up almost all night, no rx nitrofurantoin focused and driven, no rx nitrofurantoin surrounded by brilliant people and creative ideas? Energy comes in limited quantities. It is finite, no rx nitrofurantoin it waxes and wanes, no rx nitrofurantoin 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, no rx nitrofurantoin and remove the events and things that deplete our energy? There are people, no rx nitrofurantoin places and things that make me feel like I’m building my energy stores, no rx nitrofurantoin that rejuvenate me, no rx nitrofurantoin and help me to do my best work. Likewise, no rx nitrofurantoin 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, no rx nitrofurantoin 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, no rx nitrofurantoin how do you say no to people and things that zap your energy reserves? Together, no rx nitrofurantoin we made a map of the different types of people in our lives, no rx nitrofurantoin 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. No rx nitrofurantoin 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, no rx nitrofurantoin here are the ranges of personality types – from high, no rx nitrofurantoin positive energy, no rx nitrofurantoin to balanced and stable individuals, no rx nitrofurantoin 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. No rx nitrofurantoin People who are so thrilled to be around other people and in the world, no rx nitrofurantoin talking with them is like getting a burst of inspiration. No rx nitrofurantoin When I wake up in the morning, no rx nitrofurantoin a phone call with them is better than coffee. No rx nitrofurantoin They are my muses, no rx nitrofurantoin my inspirations, no rx nitrofurantoin my creatives. No rx nitrofurantoin Like coffee, no rx nitrofurantoin however, no rx nitrofurantoin I can’t drink it nonstop each day – so they are better in quantifiable bursts.
  • Happys. Generally positive, no rx nitrofurantoin seem to be happy almost all the time. No rx nitrofurantoin People you would skip with, no rx nitrofurantoin laugh with, no rx nitrofurantoin enjoy being with. No rx nitrofurantoin I have lots of these in my life. No rx nitrofurantoin They aren’t as physically excited as the Buzzers, no rx nitrofurantoin 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, no rx nitrofurantoin and who exude a positive radiance without necessarily saying or doing anything, no rx nitrofurantoin are your Wonder Listeners. No rx nitrofurantoin After hanging out with one of these, no rx nitrofurantoin I leave feeling happy, no rx nitrofurantoin excited, no rx nitrofurantoin and inspired.
  • Coaches and Mentors. These are people who seem to have endless stores of hope and inspiration designed just for you. No rx nitrofurantoin People who are genuinely interested in what you have to offer and how you are doing. No rx nitrofurantoin The coaches and mentors are usually a check-in, no rx nitrofurantoin once a week or once a month, no rx nitrofurantoin and they offer their advice and wisdom to you in their interactions.

The Middle Balance (Balancers and Grounders)

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

Negatives

  • The Repetitives and Non-Changers. People who are stuck in a problem that you’ve listened to for years. No rx nitrofurantoin Their complaints are the same, no rx nitrofurantoin over and over again, no rx nitrofurantoin and they don’t bring anything new to the table. No rx nitrofurantoin Each time, no rx nitrofurantoin it feels like you’re stuck in déjà-vu, no rx nitrofurantoin because you’re still talking about how to deal with their terrible relationships, no rx nitrofurantoin bad work situation, no rx nitrofurantoin or general malaise. No rx nitrofurantoin To deal with these types, no rx nitrofurantoin tell them, no rx nitrofurantoin politely and firmly, no rx nitrofurantoin that you don’t want to talk about their ____ problem anymore. No rx nitrofurantoin “I appreciate all the struggles you are having with your job situation, no rx nitrofurantoin but I’d like to not talk about that anymore. No rx nitrofurantoin I know you are working hard on it. No rx nitrofurantoin 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, no rx nitrofurantoin they tell you what they think you want to hear; they quote inspirational things and bits. No rx nitrofurantoin But the substance is not there. No rx nitrofurantoin And, no rx nitrofurantoin more importantly, no rx nitrofurantoin you are not rejuvenated by the words or the ideas in the way you are around Quiet Wonders or Listeners or Buzzers. No rx nitrofurantoin Some people are obviously fake; others not so obviously. No rx nitrofurantoin At the end of the day, no rx nitrofurantoin what’s most important is how you respond when you’re around them.
  • Negative Influences. There are people who are wonderful, no rx nitrofurantoin interesting, no rx nitrofurantoin bright, no rx nitrofurantoin and creative. No rx nitrofurantoin And yet, no rx nitrofurantoin for some reason, no rx nitrofurantoin I am negatively influenced when I am around them. No rx nitrofurantoin It’s not that they themselves are bad people – it’s that I make bad choices when I’m around them. No rx nitrofurantoin For some reason or another, no rx nitrofurantoin hanging out with them is not conducive to my success. No rx nitrofurantoin These are the trickiest people to identify, no rx nitrofurantoin because there’s nothing about them that’s bad or easy to rationalize avoiding. No rx nitrofurantoin 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. No rx nitrofurantoin The people that drain you, no rx nitrofurantoin that zap your energy, no rx nitrofurantoin that are filled with negativity and cutting remarks. No rx nitrofurantoin Most of us quickly eliminate these people from our lives after just a few interactions. No rx nitrofurantoin They are easy to spot and identify. No rx nitrofurantoin If you still have them around, no rx nitrofurantoin ask yourself why? What do you benefit from being with a toxic person?
In each of these scenarios, no rx nitrofurantoin 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. No rx nitrofurantoin Sometimes my friends are Buzzing-happy, no rx nitrofurantoin 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. No rx nitrofurantoin In turn, no rx nitrofurantoin 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. Which is your favorite personality type to be around? ### Image credit: The author, no rx nitrofurantoin Sarah Kathleen Peck
