Distinguishing themselves is not easy --- because both kinds of people are bound to: 1. Resist attempts by domineering people to unilaterally control other people; i.e., trying to unilaterally control: actions, appearances, thoughts, desires, hopes, expectations, responses, friendships, writings, publications, etc. 2. Be less than fully open-and-honest with domineering people about their own private: thoughts, insights, lives, hopes, plans, intentions and friendships. 3. Be unlikely to fit-in-well in any traditional and/or conformity-oriented community. 4. Behave in unpredictable/surprising ways in many circumstances --- as seen from the point of view of many people who do not fit-in-well in growing and changing environments and humane communities. 5. Healthy people often cause dishonest and domineering people to feel insecure, threatened and/or embarrassed. 6. Truly-healthy people are often misunderstood by many apparently "normal" people --- and so truly-healthy people may not be well integrated into apparently "normal" cooperative community efforts. The truly-healthy-people and the collusive-un- healthy-people are ALIKE in the above six ways. The following are six ways in which truly-healthy people are DIFFERENT from collusively-un-healthy people: 1. Healthy people are CREATIVE and seek to develop NEW WAYS to deal with the threats and challenges which they encounter. They often promote changes which disturb settled-people and especially disturb those domineering people who seek to be in control; dominant. 2. Healthy-people seek to be OPEN and HONEST --- and so upset people who are just the opposite: dishonest, pretentious, self-righteous, arrogant, addictive, defensive, collusive and trying to protect "The Domination System" --- so it will NOT BE EXPOSED to the light of open and honest dialogue; e.g., by people sharing personal experiences and perceptions about human relationships which are NOT-HEALTHY. 3. Healthy-people are honest about the MANY FACTORS which interact with each other in determining the outcomes of human efforts to deal with complexity. Healthy people are honest about the flaws within dichotomous either/or analyses which focus exclusively on questions of: right/wrong, good/evil, true/false, friend/enemy and other ways in which exclusive people polarize each other. 4. Healthy people are not willing to allow domineering people to dominate and/or control them. Neither are healthy people willing to become domineering people who try to dominate and/or control others. They refuse to play collusive games of presuming that they can be dominant and/or in control by over-powering others who are playing such dishonest games in various ways. 5. Healthy people are willing to let go of human presumptions of invulnerability and transcendence of limitations. Healthy people are willing to be open and honest about human limits, limitations and healthy forms of vulnerability. Thereby they upset and threaten people who are arrogant, self-righteous, pretentious and unwilling to let go of their collusive games of mutual self deception. 6. Unhealthy people are unwilling and/or unable to deal honestly with the above subtle and complicated patters in human relationships. So they see complex human relationships in distorting simplistic terms --- which promote violent conflicts over mutually exclusive positions taken by simplistic people who are unwilling to be honest about the complexity of their relationships.
