Acceptance

Many work groups provide an adequate opportunity to satisfy high acceptance needs. The self-worth of individual group members is confirmed through normal interaction and feedback. This process is further enhanced when group members cooperate and support each other. They don’t make unreasonable demands on one another, and they work together to minimize the impact of demands from outside the group.

People with unsatisfied high acceptance needs tend to take on too much work. They often are viewed as “easy” by others, and others, therefore, take advantage of them. Doing what others ask is the price paid for acceptance, confirmation of self-worth, and being liked. It is often a very high price in terms of alternate use of time. Time used responding to such requests may be wasted when it takes you away from higher-priority work.
