When I walk into a room I see… humans trying to cope with life as best as they know how.

as well as our

b, feel compassion for the person behind the behavior because I understand where it is coming from

c, better ‘co-regulate’, i.e. communicate, collaborate more successfully with others by knowing what triggers and what motivates each Type (i.e. what to avoid and how to reassure them).
