have you ever used socionics to help you heal a relationship? if so, how? i'm thinking of important, close relationships or even work relationships (due to the closer distance at work and political pressure) more than casual friendships.
i had a healing conversation with my mom and dad. they are my benefactor and supervisor, respectively. i labelled the supervision without mentioning anything about socionics directly. my father really loves me...and now knows there is almost nothing he can tell me that will help me the way he thinks i need to be helped.
i talked about our quadra differences without talking about socionics directly. delta values: they value a Camelot lifestyle, focused on civilization, accumulation of property, buildings, wealth. as an alpha, i prefer a life style of simplicity, enjoyment, space and time to consider ideas and inventions, and some emotional drama. alphas are the hippies not delta. i talked about how some of our values are the same....others are not. that, finally, i can't be like them although i can admire their lifestyle and see why they like it. it's so tough for them to really try to let me go, but i think after all this time they finally are ready. they are ready after a protracted period of distance, after struggling with the loss of a different alpha child to a life of simplicity in costa rica, only in this emotional turmoil were they ready to consider the gestalt of what's happening to our family.
i guess it's tough for delta parents to accept the wanderings of alpha children. i would say it went well. i am feeling more hopeful than ever before!
