The person who engages in constructing a rationalization is working to make the "logic" of their construction appear reasonable to themselves and/or to their best "friends". For True-Lovers and Domineering people the nature of their "logic" is different; just as are the natures of their: ideals, values, principles, assumptions, attitudes, and foci of reverence. We may helpfully study their differing "rationalizations" to discern the differences between the foundations upon which they have built their lives, and the differences between the consequences of building their lives on their contrasting foundations. When dealing with the contrasts between Domineering- People and True-Lovers it is both essential-and-difficult to discern what the operative real-motivations are. Domineering-People are often working hard at concealing their real-motivations and real-intentions; from others, as well as from themselves, as participants in collusive-games-of-mutual-self-deception. What is made to appear to be simple, is often quite complicated- and-confused. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
