When approval is someone's top need, you feel especially loved when others brag on you or speak well of you.  It means that you like to be acknowledged for the kind of person you are, not just the things you do.

You might also like when someone affirms your character or says how proud they are to be in a relationship with you.

You might especially like to hear words like, "I'm proud of you!  You have such a kind and generous heart."
