· What is your value language?
I think my primary value language is Relationships. (But it is not concrete). While I do find value in maintaining relationships (often reaching out to old friends), and enjoy being around people (sometimes) I don’t necessarily place high value on contacts, and the idea of meeting new people can be somewhat intimidating. But at the same time, I have only a few close friends while I know a great deal of people.
I believe my secondary is probably perfection. While my desk is less then perfect, my dad
taught me at a very early age, that there is a proper and improper way of doing things and when you do something you care about, you want to do it properly. I have this as my secondary as there are something’s that I do halfway and I have learned that something’s have to be left at Minimum Viable Product. I also like to have control over my surroundings which is not always possible in large crowds or night clubs which is why I avoid them.
What was your aha moment today
Very simple tonight. Something that Vanessa said really hit me. I can’t quote it perfectly but a sum up of it is that ‘Conflicts start when people speak different value languages.'
