David Keirsey said this about Idealist children when they find themselves in conflictual situations:
"These children, especially if reserved, lack defenses against things the other types take in stride. For example, these children are devastated by conflict, and if reared in a home where the parents quarrel a good deal, they are apt to become withdrawn and insecure."
-David Keirsey, Please Understand Me II
I find this to be still true for me, and I will often volunteer for blame or readily believe I am to blame. What are your experiences with this?
