Opposite qualities in our mates are likely perceived as negatives that need to be changed instead of strengths we do not possess.

Accepting The Opposite Personality Traits in Your Mate

Such a simple sounding admonition can be difficult to accomplish especially when we try to remold mates into the person we think they should become.

The skilled planner and organizer desires the more spontaneous spouse to be organized, ye the spontaneous spouse feels the pinch of wings pinned down by the planner. The logical thinker may unconsciously view the feeling person as inane; the feeling person may believe the logical thinker is insensitive.

Opposite qualities in our mates are likely perceived as negatives that need to be changed instead of strengths we do not possess. Although the logical planner may be weaker in empathizing with people, planning and organizing are, nonetheless, strong points. On the other hand, life without a little spontaneity can be dull.

We tend to be weaker in our opposite personality traits, according to some psychologists. For example, the more emotional type will be weaker in objective thinking tendencies and vice versa. Try to think of the opposite qualities in your mate as possible points of strength in the total relationship or marriage team.

When we accept a person as what he/she is before marriage, why try to change them later! Thought provoking article, Athena - siva
