Relational attitudes, and the relations they bequeath, are the future of socionics relations study. Relational attitudes color the nature of socionics relationships. For example, a supervisor who has a domineering attitude toward their supervisee can expect to be perceived as oppressive by the supervisee. It's important to note, however, that these are relations between the object and subject, and therefore the psychic domain factor invariably comes into play. A conservatives supervisee will only try to domineer a supervisee who which acts in such manners as have not been demonstrated to not have negative consequences. Similarly, a liberal supervisee will only feel oppressively supervised if the supervisor is demanding that they act in such manner as to incurr the consequence of phenomena which the supervisor will not acknowledge.

When someone has confidence in the universality of a relational attitude, then they have a disorder of their personal relationships. This disorder will tempt the people around them to respond with a compensatory mentality, thus setting in place a persistent relational dynamic. These dynamics may be either positive or negative, depending on the relevance of the relator's attitude to the situation. They will persist unabated until the relationship is observed as a phenomena in itself, and its usefulness questioned. At that point, the relationship is either disengaged (if the negatives outweigh the positives); left unchanged (if the positives outweigh the negatives); or, if the negatives and positives are in proportion, identified as a problem in need of solution.
