You and your partner are driving somewhere in a new city and you are not familiar with the roads
You follow the directions given to you by your partner. It soon turns out, however, that you are lost.
What are you most likely say?
A. "I thought you knew how to get there."
B. "It's ok. We enjoyed the drive anyway."
C. "I should have paid attention. When we made that left turn, I wanted to ask you about it but didn't. My fault."
A: "I thought you knew how to get there."
Not a very forgiving person, you are quick in assigning responsibility to others. Hidden in the accusatory tone is also anger or dissatisfaction that may or may not be related to the incident per se.
B: "It's ok. We enjoyed the drive anyway."
Easygoing and understanding in your attitude, you generally consider your partner equal to yourself. The readiness with which you tolerate your partner's errors indicates a desire to be treated the same way in similar situations.
C: "I should have paid attention. When we made the left turn back over there, I wanted to ask you about it but didn't. My fault."
Self-effacing and self-accusatory, you demonstrate a tendency to bending over backwards to accommodate your partner. The relationship may be a truly sweet one, but possibly hidden in the attitude is also a certain amount of insecurity.
