When you know more about personality preferences, it can be easier to appreciate differences between you and those closest to you. Typically when there are difficult differences between you and another person, you can try to avoid interacting with that person. But when the bothersome differences are with a loved one, avoidance is not a good option and there is a lot more at stake.
The more you know about your differences, the better you can learn to live with and manage them. Instead of thinking of your loved one’s behavior as “wrong,” you can learn to view their behavior as part of their personality type. You’ll see that they’re not trying to “push your buttons” or offend you. Many couples can learn to appreciate these behavior differences and might even see them in a humorous light.
Join us to learn more about personality differences and how to enhance your relationship.
