Caveat emptor: Be honest with yourself and answer, “How important is it for you to be right and/or get your way in a partnership conflict vs. make the relationship better between you?”

A way to know your answer is how long you act negative, angry and/or sullen after you’ve been wrong or not gotten your way.

The longer you act those ways, the more important it is for you to be right and/or get your way, and what follows will not work for you. And by the way, you’re not very good partnership material at work or at home.
