I wonder how they would handle this, because it's something in myself that I'm not sure what to do with.
It has to do with assessing my personal performance. Whether a presentation or commenting on my GPA or a project or anything else.... I tend to always think about how things are different from what I'd prefer or how I'd want things to be ; which is synonymous with my evaluation of what could be done, sort of. I'm a tougher judge of my own performance than others, sort of, unless it's time to push people, then I can be a real hardass.
But the point of the matter here is the awkwardness that comes up when someone says "great job", and I know that there are things that i did that do not at all feel like a great job. I simply cannot get those things out of my mind, and I feel a great internal struggle between saying "yeah, thanks" or "yeah we sure did!" vs my real reaction of "No, I messed up here, and was off the mark there, I don't like how that turned out at all, this part was ok, that part was good, etc". Even if the positives far outweigh the negatives, the negatives still come to mind.
So it's sort of a problem with accepting compliments.
I wonder what EIIs, and maybe IEEs or other delta people in general, feel about that. I tend to feel the least pressure from delta people when they give compliments, because I don't feel like they are trying to illicit a response from me.
delta NFs seem to be the sweetest or most pleasing compliment givers, to me. I hardly feel any 'pressure' or forced-ness to change my response with them. But I still feel awkward about it, especially towards other people . . .
What do you think?
