Making compromises

I've lots of experience in making compromises (eg, with myself, with others). Nevertheless, it never occurred to me that others are doing the very same.

Let’s work together

My 2016 blog, Human Emotions (2) - a revisit, defined two primal emotions, being Love and Fear. All other emotions are derived from those two. My blog of 30 September 2020 defined two primal ways of human interaction: cooperation vs competition. The diagram below depicts how those 4 elements work together. Human couples show the most common example of cooperation...
