NEVER LET THEM SEE YOU SWEAT
Empathizers are criticized for getting their feelings hurt too easily and for staying hurt for too long. Are you able to stop caring and become indifferent when you’re dwelling too much on how someone did you wrong, making you feel unwell? Listen up. There’s a season and reason to be insensitive!
DON’T GIVE AWAY YOUR POWER
Empathizers can learn to present a front of self-control and confidence which Instigators value. If you’re a sensitive E-type, how do you let water roll off your back like a duck?
To help out their E-type counterparts, I-types would advise Insensitivity Training via self-talk tools of this type…
- Just don’t react
- Don’t throw a fit
- Don’t do what they think you’re going to do
- Never let them see you sweat
- Don’t dwell…be well
- Don’t give away your power
- Don’t react in the same manner that you’re being treated
- Ignore the person
- Stop thinking about it
- Control what you can…accept what you don’t have power to influence
DON’T DWELL…BE WELL
These “be strong” messages take the focus off thinking…thinking…thinking about the other person, and puts the focus back on helping yourself get mentally fit.
THERE’S NO BETTER BEING TO BE, THAN BEING YOURSELF
Human beings are feeling machines. Empathizers ding themselves for being so emotionally alive. What’s all the fuss? When, my dear Empathizer, you’re dwelling on how someone has hurt your feelings – change the channel – dwell on being well.
