Flourish: Post #4 - Active Constructive

Active Constructive Responding: Shelly Gable, professor at UC Santa Barbara, has found that how we celebrate good things in a relationship is every bit as important as learning how to disagree. There are four ways to respond to information from someone. As often as possible your focus should be as an Active and Constructive responder—with enthusiastic words and nonverbals.
This will always work better than the other responses: Passive and Constructive (little or no active emotional expression); Active and Destructive (nonverbal display of negative emotions); and Passive and Destructive (no emotional reaction and no nonverbal connection).
