This study explored the positive impacts of two different types of compliments, compliments on personality and compliments on physical characteristics. This study was an extension of another study that focused on how people underestimate the positive impact of their compliments. We predicted that personality-based compliments would have a higher positive impact that compliments based on physical characteristics.
