How to be an awesome camping buddy. TIP #3

How to be an awesome camping buddy. How a well timed nod sometimes would means the same as a cheer.
___
Last post I wrote about the magic ratio between positive and negative feedback in a working team. As an addition to this post i wanted to talk about what positive feedback might look like in different settings. 
____
There are huge differences between what a positive statement is depending on where you are and what people you are with. A statement that would be positive in one setting can be negative in a different setting. For example, if I go over to Maria and said "wow, you're so great at building fire" she'd take that as praise. However, if a guy in his sixties told his hiking buddy "wow, Arne, you're so great a building a fire" it might come through an insult. 
____
At the same time a guy might give his friend a well timed gruff when finishing a job, meaning the highest of praise. If I were to give one of my girlfriends the same appreciation I would have to throw then up in the air and yell. 
____
We always need to adjust the positive feedback to the setting we're in. For some that might be saying "good job", for others it might just be a friendly nod or a appreciative look. Whatever positive communication looks like among your friends, just make sure you give it six times as often as you say something negative.
