Here comes a packed class of the Relationship School. 

This time it contains a model, a way of explaining emotions and behavior in your relationship.

With Love,

A model for all relationships!

What is a model relationship? Is it a relationship with Heidi Klum or Markus Schenkenberg? Or is it a relationship that is a role model, a model that others can emulate? It could be either one or the other but in this case it is a relationship described from a model, a theory about human relationships and their development.

According to man called Will Schuts, we seek in our relationship to other people to satisfy three basic needs, the need to be recognized and included, the need to have influence and the need for love. These can vary in strength in different individuals, but what he found in common was that the satisfaction of these needs was in the same order of most people when we start a new relationship / group and afterwards as this matures and develops.

He formed his thoughts in to a model called FIRO which is much about our feelings and how these affect us in relation to others and how this in turn affects our efficiency and our well being. The efficiency when it comes to solving tasks is the highest in a mature relationship where the least energy is needed for the relationships in the group.

The second highest efficiency is in immature groups and the least efficiency in solving tasks in a group is found in the so called control phase where a lot of the energy is needed to the relationships within the group and you are on your way from immature to mature and open relationships.

'We need others. We need others to love and be loved by. There is no doubt that without it we would too, like the infant left alone, stop growing, stop developing, and choose craziness and even death.'

(Leo Buscaglia)
