recognition

anonymous asked:

What kind of compliments did the idols you've worked with liked best?

most of the individuals (as with anyone) enjoyed compliments in regards to their personal work or something they produced or put in considerably more labor within. 

however, they also thrived upon recognition for their work on subjects in which they were acknowledged to be weak or lacking within. to be given compliments and recognition of progress and improvement were their biggest joys.
