I was making preps for a coming exam and this suddenly came to me:

Can I say "I am that kind of person who always follows through once I make a promise"?

    It sounds slightly more natural in my opinon to say "I am the kind of person..." but otherwise yes, that's a very normal sentence. Feb 12 '20 at 5:49

When I search about follow through, then I decide the following :

I am that kind of person who always follows through on promise once made.

Further, both that and the are possible :

Then again, no one has the kind of expertise held by John.

Only a handful of students have that kind of motivation.

  • I agree with you regarding “that/the kind of person” in general but in this sentence only “the” works grammatically. Your version of the sentence has another significant error. Do you mean, “...on promises once made.”? Finally, have I missed something in the reference to “Park”? (Don’t tell me you mean the former South Korean President!) Feb 13 '20 at 5:31
  • Thank you for your correction in use 'once'. For the second, I do not know well what you are talking about.
