Finding the discussions here interesting as there are thoughts here I have wrestled with too. In any given situation I try to determine WHY I am attracting certain people to me (sometimes "cruel" people) -- what my responsibility is in the equation... I firmly believe we all pick up cues from each other, and treat each other in a give and take based on reading the other person -- and certain people draw certain situations to themselves......often something can be learned from the difficult situations. But it's not easy. I learn the most about myself from how I handle myself in the most difficult relationships.
> I disagree. Not all people are equally cruel. Cruelty is not an "equal opportunity" thing.
> Although some may be attracted to it and attempt to draw others into it, there are others who just want to get the hell away from it, and anything near it. I'm one of those 'I need to get out of here' (move away) or if that doesn't work, then secondly I resort to 'get these people away from me' (move against/push them away from me).
> I frankly don't care in participating wiht others non-stop. My sub-type, doesn't allow much leeway for 'too close for comfort'. I attribute this to my sub-typing. What do you think? Which sub-type are you?
