This paper discusses how the hypothetical scenario outlined in the chapter four of Doctor John Gottman's book, "The Relationship Cure", , is built upon neuroscientist, Jaak Pankepp's concept of the "emotional command system." The paper discusses how people fit into the archetypes discussed in the chapter and how those different personality traits and behaviors affect and influence relationships.
From the Paper:"The chapter opens with a hypothetical scenario about a group of friends who gather at a wilderness resort. Each person has a different personality and different interests, therefore, each person has a different idea about how the trip is going to go. There is the "Commander-in-Chief", the person who planned the whole thing. There is the "Explorer", the one wanting to get out and see things. There is the "Sentry", the person who's on the look-our for danger. Then there is the "Energy Czar", the person who most likely has a schedule and a plan that requires following. The "Sensualist" is planning to rekindle a romance with the "Explorer". The Jester is the one who just wants to relax. And finally, the "Nest-Builder" just wants to settle in and make everybody happy and feeling at home."
