People respond to challenges along the four types of relational modalities. The six role process shows how the creativity tests illustrate the syndromal psychodynamic unfolding of the six emotions. It is interesting to observe the insights generated by the battery and how the insights lead to making changes to improve relations with others as well as to improve one’s emotions.
The relational modalities are innate. Some people are born more comfortable in being dominant, outspoken, less inhibited in expressing their feelings, some are more comfortable being cautious, sensitive to others needs, rather than their own.
The relational modalities are syndromes. The inventory identifies the relational modality. The creativity exercises identify the syndromes of the six interrelated emotions. The sample stories clarify the personality type identified by the inventory.
This page includes the computer generated reports of two sample Conflict Analysis Battery profiles; one of a dominant woman, the other of a mixed type, both submissive cooperative and antagonistic. Note the seven aspects of the report: The report starts with the results of the personality inventory. Numbers are ascribed to all relational modalities. The spectrum of modalities reflects the mixed nature of diagnostic qualities. The four relational types also identify the intensity of the related personality traits. The second report presents the art work assigned to each one of the six role states. The third segment presents the insights generated through the metaphors. The fourth table presents suggestions for changes. The fifth is about the significance of the assessment experience. The sixth is responses to a query about the three functions of the assessment: didactic, diagnostic and therapeutic. The final report is the transcription of the entire record.
Albert Levis, M.D., the director of the Institute of Conflict Analysis and the founder of the Center for the Study of Normative Behavior, has published several books about the creative process and the role of creativity as a tool to self-understanding.
