Extraverts (E) typically give compliments freely and enjoy receiving them. When an Extravert (E) gives a compliment, it’s not just a “good job”. It’s more of a “Wow! You were so amazing at that presentation. I was floored by how fantastic you did!”
This can sometimes come across as shallow or insincere to an Introverted (I) type. But it’s important to keep in mind that Introverts (I) are not as verbose as an Extravert (E). If an Introvert (I) says something once, you had better listen. They likely will not repeat it or say it in multiple ways to increase its full affect.
Why is this important to know? Because you should know your audience when giving praise. If you are working with an Extravert (E), understand that giving as much praise as you can and including details will be energizing.
Extraverts (E) typically don’t mind receiving praise in public. Bring it on! They love it! Providing praise to an Introvert (I) is usually more or a private affair. Write a meaningful note or email. Pull them aside and share your compliments in a one-on-one setting. For an Introvert (I), quantity does not win over quality.
