Completely normal, of course, but it’s interesting to look at this in the context of the NLP presupposition “Energy follows intention.”
It implies that if you don’t set an intention when you‘re communicating, you may focus your energy on wanting to be liked, rather than noticing the other person.
When you can let go of a need to be liked, you begin to make powerful observations about the other person. Perhaps, more controversially, you may also foster a genuine sense of empathy when your focus is not on yourself.
