We prove correctness and worst-case optimality. Our correctness proof is based on syntactic models called demos. The main theorem states that a formula is satisfiable if and only if it is contained in a demo. From this theorem the correctness of the decision procedure is easily obtained.

And beyond the benefits to relationships , doling out compliments can immediately make you as the giver happier as well. Liben points to research showing that giving gratitude -based compliments, in particular, correlates with greater levels of optimism, satisfaction and happiness.

As relationship expert and coach Rachel DeAlto puts it, "Compliments create positive energy! And like gifts, giving them can benefit the giver as well as the recipient. Here's how to build a sincere, thoughtful compliment, that will strengthen your relationships, boost happiness and gratitude , and definitely bring a smile to someone's face. To give a compliment that really resonates, Liben suggests a three-step process, which starts by identifying an action or quality that you truly respect or appreciate.

The next step is to figure out the reason this quality resonates so strongly with you. So to put the first two steps together, for example, if you're thinking about complimenting a friend about her vacation-planning skills leading up to your girls trip , consider why you appreciate the related actions—did she make the trip fun and stress-free for everyone else, for example? Then, connect the first two steps to deliver the compliment, being as specific as possible.

So in the case of the getaway, it might be something like, "You're so fantastic at picking incredible places to eat! I so appreciate that you're in control. An honest compliment, even if it's a small one, carries more weight," she explains. So, for example, telling your friend that the party she threw was "Literally the best night ever," might come off as less meaningful than something along the lines of, "I love how you had icebreaker games ready to go so we could all get to know each other as soon as we got there!

Hosting seems to come so naturally to you and I really appreciate you always introducing me to new people. Liben agrees that "Skin-deep compliments may sometimes feel shallow, but in the right context, they can be empowering and appreciated.

The formula of specific trait plus emotional connection works for complimenting romantic partners on a deeper level as well, and can even help your relationship. Regularly complimenting your co-workers or employees can actually boost their performance: Liben points to a link between expressing well-deserved performance-related recognition and improving professional output.

To do this as effectively as possible, "the compliment should be genuine and deserved," she says, as well as performance-specific. For example, after a coworker gives a powerful presentation, compliment her delivery rather than her outfit," she says.

Whether it's a person on the train or a musician whose performance rocked the house, well-founded read: not creepy! But for people who are shy, it can be easier said than done.

Be direct and speak in an audible volume that conveys confidence. Besides likely bringing a smile to the other person's face, Liben adds that "If complimenting a stranger is outside your comfort zone, it can be a real dopamine rush.
