The Encourager

The Encourager

1036253800 | Dean Drobot |

The Encourager is a cheerful and popular individual who likes to do good — especially toward her family and friends. Making other people happy gives her a sense of fulfillment.

When pregnant, it is essential that the Encourager takes good care of herself and, above all, stays true to her values rather than focusing too much on others' opinions.

Good Company

The Encourager enjoys being around other people at work and in her personal life. She is good at organizing social gatherings and is an attentive host. She feels comfortable in groups, is outgoing, and makes new friends easily.

A woman with the Encourager personality type respects hierarchies and structures. Her values are based on the tried and true. Moreover, it is crucial for her to be recognized. She thrives on positive feedback and often takes criticism very much to heart. Therefore, she tends to conform to be accepted by her social group.

At work, she is diligent and has no problem completing routine tasks — as long as the social environment at work is a good fit for her.

The Encourager likes to live for others. She is committed to the common good and to projects that serve a good cause. Harmony is important to her, and she invests much energy into avoiding conflict. In any social setting, her friendliness keeps tensions at bay, ensuring that everyone is at ease and gets along. 

During Pregnancy

Encouragers, being caring individuals, are generally confident that they would be good mothers — and they have every reason to be!

However, since the Encourager likes to plan and is fond of structures and rules, an unintended pregnancy can be unsettling. Especially if the partner or other loved ones don’t react positively to the pregnancy, it can become a stressful situation.

Particularly at the beginning of pregnancy, it is advisable for the Encourager to connect with caring individuals who provide support. This would allow her to adjust and grow into this new role more easily.

Perhaps her greatest challenge lies in dealing with the disapproval of others regarding the pregnancy. In this case, it can help the Encourager to focus on the positive aspects of the situation: the fulfilling task and responsibility of caring for a brand-new person.

The Encourager Mom

The Encourager mom creates a home full of love and protection. She is a natural at providing her children with comfort and a haven. Everyday life is calm because of the Encourager’s ability to master situations in a proficient and structured manner.

Simultaneously, she teaches her children social skills simply by example. They can discuss anything with their Encourager mom, knowing they are well cared for and loved — no matter what trouble they have gotten themselves into 😉.

Not only during pregnancy, but also throughout motherhood, the Encourager should remember to treat herself every once in a while: by spending time with loved ones, doing something she enjoys and pampering herself (and not just others) every now and then.
