    Words of Affirmation
    Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important—hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.

    Pretty much means that I want to spend a lot of quality time touching you

    Quality Time
    In Quality Time, nothing says “I love you” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes you feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed activities, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.
    well I guess I knew that one going in

    pretty sure the "words of affirmation" is only so high because it was compared to e.g. gifts and shit in the questions

    To me, gifts are the dumbest thing unless they're extremely practical or meaningful. I just do not need more crap lying around my house.

It could be a little flower that someone picks from a garden, or someone could make that person a card and they will feel appreciated. It doesn't have anything to do with being greedy or wanting more and more STUFF. It's about knowing that someone was thinking about them.

    I just wanted to clear the misconception I feel people may have. Don't be ashamed or feel guilty if that's your language. That's how you feel appreciated!! Own it.
    Perhaps the real reason people score low is because receiving a gift, no matter how nice, doesn't say "I love you" like something more personal, like physical touch, quality time (usually one-on-one), or an act of service. Another reason could be that people like to give more than they receive because it's nicer to give personally than to receive.

    If gifts is your language than you love to give AND receive gifts, just like someone with physical touch would love to give AND receive hugs or kisses. That is just how the personal knows how to show and receive that type of affection. One of my sisters has this gift and she is spot on about getting things for people. She's very attuned to what they like and enjoy. Just the same, she gets so excited if you give her a rock from a place that her and that person visited as a reminder of the experience. She is one of the least greediest people know and just loves on people.

    My point for posting originally was to encourage the language of gifts is because I feel it is greatly misunderstood.
