Unfortunately, most people do not appreciate value of temperament diversity in their relationships. Some people define a successful relationship as one where they have similar interests and much in common with their partner. Many make fundamental mistake of believing that similarity is key to compatibility.
The most common and natural attraction of opposites is between introvert and extrovert. Like attraction between Yin and Yang, introverts and extroverts recognize in one another qualities and traits they require for balance. The two most naturally balanced relationships are between Worker & Watcher styles or Talker & Thinker styles. Due to their aggressive and controlling nature, least compatible relationship is between two Workers. All relationship combinations can work if people understand temperament dynamics and are willing to make adjustments as required. Whether it is a nation, a company, or a personal relationship, strength and balance are found in our complementary differences, not in our similarities.
