Strokes are the recognition one person gives another These begin in infancy as hugs Later in life become more verbal/abstract

Stroking is defined as any act of giving recognition and importance to another. Example: You performed well, your dress is really good According to psychology, all people have hunger for strokes. In almost every transaction, in fact, we seek strokes. Strokes are very much important and unavoidable to our life satisfaction. If we dont get positive strokes, we will even try to get, at least, some negative strokes.

Types of Strokes
Positive Conditional Strokes Positive Unconditional Strokes Negative strokes

Types of Strokes (Contd)

Positive strokes are those recognitions from others, which when received makes us happy. The examples given above are in fact positive strokes. Negative strokes are those negative recognitions (criticisms, punishment etc.) from others, which when received makes us unhappy (though we get a bit strange and crude pleasure of getting the recognition of the other). Your performance was very poor, get out from this place are examples of negative strokes.

Positive strokes
Praise Positive feedback Compliments Expressions of appreciation Good reports

Negative strokes
Non-constructive criticism Negative judgements Insults Expressions of disapproval Bad reports

Life positions
I am okay, you are not okay I am not okay, you are okay I am not okay, you are not okay I am okay, you are okay

Realize that every person has a hunger for strokes. Also, understand that many situations of conflicts are, in fact, attempts by the other party to seek strokes. Give as much positive strokes as possible. As far as possible, avoid negative strokes; at least convert them into mixed strokes. Realize that a no stroke situation is equally or more dangerous than a negative stroke.
