Sometime during the 90s, I listened to an audio program that explained the differences between matchers and mismatchers.Matchers are “yes, and” people who see the upsides of an idea more prominently than the downsides. If you share a new idea with them, they’ll see how the idea could work and may offer suggestions for what else you could do to make it even better.Mismatchers are “wait, but” people who see the downsides of an idea more prominently than the upsides. If you share a new idea with them, they see what could go wrong and may point out the risks and drawbacks.I’m a matcher. I fi...

ConclusionsWhile patient symptoms are important predictors of patient well-being, subjective appraisals of the stressfulness of symptoms, and of patients ’ self-efficacy in managing symptoms, are also key factors.
