Supine in Inclusion

The Supine in Inclusion is relationship-oriented and needs to relate to other people. They indicate temperament needs for social interaction, surface relationships and intellectual energies.

The Supine in Inclusion is both introverted and extroverted. This means they express themselves as an introvert and respond as an extrovert. Because this person is quiet and usually found in the backgroundin a social situation they appear to be distant and respond only when approached by others. They will not send messages that they want to be accepted nor do they assert themselves. They want others to guess their need to socialize. They are often frustrated in their loneliness, when other fail to anticipate their needs.

The Supine in Inclusion does not relate to nor understand tasks as well as they do people. When atparties or social activities, you would never guess from outward signs that they desire to be included. Ifthe people around the Supine do not interact with them with acute sensitivity, the Supine will foreverremain in social isolation.

The Supine Temperament can undertake numerous tasks, especially if these tasks are performed for the development of friendships. A person with this type of temperament can be extremely accommodating to other people, even at their own expense. The need to serve others and make them happy, leads to theirbeing natural born victims.

In a “nutshell,” our Temperaments consist of three major areas, Inclusion, Control and Affection. In regards to relationships, Inclusion determines who is in or out of the relationship; Control determines who maintains the power and makes decisions for the relationship; and Affection determines how emotionally close or distant the relationship is. The Temperament areas of Inclusion, Control and Affection (emotional needs) must be balanced or our physical bodies will eventually break down.

INCLUSION

Inclusion is the need to establish and maintain a satisfactory, surface relationship with people through association and socialization. Relationships include parties, social gatherings and people who come in and out of our lives every day. The temperament need ranges from approaching many people for association(socializing, surface relationships) to approaching only a select few.

The second Inclusion need is wanting people to approach us for association and socializing. This need is measured on a scale of wanting almost everyone to wanting almost no one to approach us for association.

Terms used to describe this association are interact, mingle, belong, communicate, companion, attend,member, togetherness, join, extrovert, introvert, exclusion, isolate, outcast, outsider, lonely, detached, withdrawn, abandoned and ignored.

InclusIon need #1 is the need to establish and maintain a satisfactory relationship with people in the area of surface relationships (association and socialization).

InclusIon need #2 is our desire for wanting people to approach us for association andsocialization.

Inclusion is unlike the temperament need of Affection in that it does not involve the strong emotional attachments to another person.

Inclusion is unlike the temperament need of Control in that Inclusion concerns itself with the prominence of the social encounter. Control concerns itself with which of the participants in the interpersonal situation is dominant.

The need a person is attempting to meet in the area of Inclusion is the perception of feeling significant or worthwhile.

CONTROL

Control is the need to establish and maintain a satisfactory relationship with people in respect to control and power. This need will determine who needs to maintain control and hold the power in the interpersonal situation. The need for control within the temperament ranges from maintaining control overeveryone’s behavior to maintaining control over no one’s behavior. The second area of need within thetemperament is measured in wanting no one to control our behavior to wanting everyone to take control of our behavior.

Control is the decision-making process between people and is described in such terms as power,authority, dominance, influence, control, ruler, superior, officer, leader, rebellion, resistance, follower,anarchy, submission and henpecked.

Control Need #1 is the need to establish and maintain a satisfactory relationship with people in respect to control and power.

Control Need #2 is the need within the temperament measured by wanting no one to control our behavior to wanting everyone to take control over our behavior.

Control differs from Inclusion because Control is the need for dominance within the interpersonal situation, not prominence of the relationship, i.e., the power behind the throne.

Control is different from Affection because it has to do with the need for power in the relationship rather than emotional closeness.

The perception of feeling competent is the need objective in the area of Control.

AFFECTION

Affection is the need to establish and maintain a satisfactory relationship with others in regard to love and affection. The needs within the temperament range from showing love and affection to a great many people to showing love and affection to only a select few.

The second area of need within the temperament ranges from wanting love and affection from everyone to wanting love and affection from no one.

Affection is unique within the temperament because it can only occur one person to one person, whereas in the areas of Inclusion and Control a group of people can be combined to be associated with or controlled as one. The temperament need for intimacy can only be achieved by the close, personal, emotional feeling between two people. To become emotionally close to someone, requires an element ofconfiding innermost desires, anxieties and feelings. A strong emotional tie usually results through sharingfeelings.

Affection Need #1 is the need to establish and maintain a relationship with others in regard to love and affection.

Affection Need #2 is the need within the temperament measured by wanting love and affection from everyone to wanting love and affection from very few.

The perception of feeling that “Self” is lovable is the need the person is attempting to meet in the area of Affection.
