Identifying what a people-pleaser is ...
Not sure if you or someone you know is a people-pleaser? Here are three links to some online quizzes to help you understand where you stand regarding this behavior.
PLEASE NOTE: These are a few samples of some of the tests I found online. These various websites may offer a complete test on the page, or contain pop-ups or request you to subscribe to a newsletter or a free consultation to gain access to your results.
These tests are in no way my recommendations but are HELPFUL in identifying a few behaviors and thoughts that come with being a people-pleaser.
Are you one who likes to keep the peace even when it comes to a high emotional price for yourself?
Do your attempts to resolve differences with a controller leave you feeling wrung out and discouraged?
Do you sense that your best traits (goodness, kindness, cooperation) somehow become a disadvantage with an overbearing counterpart?
These questions and many more are addressed in the book When Pleasing You Is Killing Me.
