I’m thinking of making pudding tonight, but won’t be able to without milk….” “I did all my bills last night…they’re due in 6 days…I’ll need to get them posted today…”

Interaction Style “To understand himself man needs to be understood by another. To be understood by another, he needs to understand the other.” -Thomas Hora Two ‘disorders’ when interacting with others: Be Like Me (BLM) Be Like Them (BLT) Interaction style addresses our styles of interacting with others – how we try to influence them and relate to them. It often determines whether we listen to someone or not and whether we like someone.
The Nature of Interaction Styles Is Inborn Remains Constant Drives Behavior Dynamic, Not Static; Influencing, Not Limiting Basic Treeness Core Self Is a Pattern Is Organic Is a Communication All behavior is communication! - Linda V. Berens, PhD
