In Tara Bennett-Goleman's book, Emotional Alchemy , she identifies 10 emotional styles that we all can identify. Your emotional style is your instinctive emotional reaction to situations. It's important to identify your emotional style, Tara adds, because it could be hurting your relationships, and ultimately keeping you from living your best life.
What's Your Emotional Style? Most people can identify with at least one of these emotional styles. Read each of the following groups of questions, and then begin to discover your own emotional style:
Did you have a loss early in life that makes you fear losing people?
Do you cling to people or push them away because you're afraid of losing them?
In relationships, are you so obsessed with the fear you'll be left, that you push people away?
