Relationships Technology

The notion that there can be a technology of relationships basically contradicts what we all know aboout relationships. There are entire bookshelves about relationships. I don't mean this kind of education about relationships; it's not an arena where book-learning seems to have much relevance. This is a technology where you learn by waking up to different ideas and then observing them in your own life, trying them out and testing what works and what doesn't work. For example, take a few minutes and rate your relationships, just for yourself, using 1 for low and 5 for high. I'm attaching this assessment at the bottom of the article. Rate yourself and then ask yourself these questions:

You probably see that you have a different sense of your relationships with different groups. Why? Are you a different person? Maybe you are. What do you think makes the difference? How do things change if you subdivide the groups even more? For example peers, employees and 'superiors' at work or nuclear family and other relatives. Would it be worth it if you can move your scores up? Is this even possible? How can we improve our relationships - all of them?? More on this later.
