You Are a Venter

image

You really do have a couple of things you’d like to get off your chest. Venting makes it possible to do just that: It allows us to air our grievances so they don’t snowball and increase our stress. After all, suppressing negative emotions can take a toll on our health, according to a study published in the Journal of Psychosomatic Research. So, let it out. Ask for feedback. Clear the air. For the sake of stress reduction—and as long as you move on—this is a positive way to complain.

That backhanded compliment from your mother-in-law? You’re still talking about it three weeks later…and you can’t seem to let it go. This type of complaining is not good for the soul. In fact, it seems like you’re complaining for the sake of complaining. Vent! Let it out! Talk to your spouse, your friends or your mom to find a solution. Then move on. Otherwise, you run the risk of ruminating too much, something that can have a long-term impact, not just on your health but on your ability to build relationships, too.

You Are a Problem Solver

With all types of complaining, the goal is to feel better and blow off steam, but the problem solver has another focus: You want to strategize to find a solution that improves the situation or at least helps to make sure it doesn’t happen again. The New York Times calls this “instrumental complaining.” You need someone’s help to “fix” the situation or you’re seeking advice. Good news. This is the best type of complaining since there’s an immediate—and expected—outcome. Brava.
