There are thousands of books that claim to tell you how to fix your relationships and many of them have some good ideas. But they don’t get to the source of relationships. They don’t leave you with an understanding of our fundamental personality traits and how those traits interact with each other to form identifiable and predictable dynamics.
To that end, we want every person in a relationship to be able to easily recognize the dynamics of their relationship. If you can’t see what’s happening, you have no way to change it. Experience shows that when an individual or couple recognizes these dynamics, they have the power (choice) to change the dynamic.
