I thought it would be interesting to see how the world reacts to us versus what we actually value in ourselves. And dear meek, modest INFPs, please don't be self conscious in the polling - external validation is just that (i.e. not your personal opinion of yourself)...
What have you noticed you receive the most external validation (i.e. praise/positive comments, appreciation, attention) on ?
What, in all honesty, do you value most/like best in yourself?
I'll start -
While I do not presently have a wall full of diplomas, I have since childhood been praised most for my academic performance/intelligence (these are by no means equal but where I went to school, sadly, that's the broad opinion). I have done/do all right with paper qualifications but I suspect this impression has largely been the effect of a generally bookish appearance :P..
As for what I like best in myself : it would fall under 'character' possibly...I've pretty much paid the price for not living the way most of my peers do - materially, socially etc.. - but for all the things I will probably not accumulate by the time I die, I hope to have retained quite a bit of self-worth in having lived my life with as much integrity as I could.
