Reducing Miscommunication in Relationships

Using CTypes (star signs of the Western Zodiac) to Open Lines of Communication in Relationships

bigstock Couple Arguing 13614082 300x227 Reducing Miscommunication in RelationshipsCType is, in our experience, one of the most powerful bodies of knowledge for healing, enhancing, and deepening relationships with the most important people in our lives. However, CType is also at the heart of much of the miscommunication, frustration, and friction in stressed or problematic relationships. This occurs when a person naturally projects his/her own CType (ways of thinking and relating) on to those with whom he/she is in relationship. This natural tendency to project one’s CType on to others is based upon the faulty assumption that everyone else thinks like I do. For those who are unaware of CType, it is rare indeed when this projection is not a part of the thinking/relating process.

One of the fundamental principles in mastering CTypes is becoming aware in real time of people projecting their CTypes on to other people, including you and me. It is probably even more important that we be aware of when we are projecting our own CType on to others, especially those closest to us.
