Question Number Two – “If you disagree with your partner about something important, what tactics do you typically use to convince him or her to be on your side? People come from diverse backgrounds with multiple layers of both painful and treasured memories that are manifested in each new partnership.Question Number Five – “When something is important to you, what techniques do you most often use to get your partner to do what you want?”When people have strong desires for something they want and are concerned that their partners may not be willing to give it to them, their responses can run the gamut from pouting, withholding, pushiness, charm, irritation, disconnection, martyrdom, negotiation, or begging.They want to know early on if they should invest the time and energy that a quality relationship requires.My answer most often is: “When you are not yet invested in the outcome.” That means as early in a new relationship as you can.
