    Agreed. However this strays into the realms of taking responsibility for one's own actions and being responsible with the various roles attained or awarded. That makes it slightly different.

    Me neither. Still find it interesting though, as a construct.

    You never wonder what the car said about it's mother?

    Nah.

    In fact, this thread makes me wonder why people confuse social etiquette/tact with effective governing ability.

    Some of you really need to toughen up.

    You've come closer to confirming what my initial post needled.

    Like Penguin, I was in favor of that from the start. Maybe it's just the SPs who have nothing to hide?

    It's interesting that both poles of ideals require a similar faith in humanity. For some they have faith that the thoughts and actions within people can be consistent, while others have faith that people can effectively compartmentalize dichotomies between thoughts and actions. Both poles require a kind of idealism about people.

    This is very true.

    Often, the friction in reconciling this polarity is where many people find their disconnect.

    This thread provides ample illustration.

    But the whole point is that what was understood to be private discussion at the time of discussion is to remain private.

    It is irrelevant whether or not you have something to hide.

    I wonder if it's scarier to not have anyone notice anything remarkable (positive or negative) about you, being plain and nondescript not really worthy of commentary either way.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.
