Discussion – Dialectics of Relationship

Think about a significant workplace or personal relationship in your life. Consider how one of the three relational dialectics you have been studying has shaped the climate of your relationship with this person. (The three are closedness/openness, autonomy/connection, and novelty/predictability.) Share how the dialectic influences your interpersonal climate with this person and how you manage the dialectic in this relationship. Are you able to manage the tensions in your relationship due to this dialectic? Or does it cause significant problems? Explain.
