Talk About It:

Ron and Susan talked about their different temperaments. How do we do at navigating our differing temperaments?

Susan mentioned that Ron’s directness causes her to feel shut down. Does that happen to either one of us?

Susan mentioned that she’s had to learn to be more brave in her communication. Do we need to be more brave in our relationship?

Mark and Jill talked about that Mark is more discerning than Jill. Jill has had to learn to trust Mark’s discerning sense in relationships even when she doesn’t see something herself. Which one of us is more discerning? Have we ever identified that?
