Like in most cases, in friendship too, commanders seek growth and inspiration. And they have a plan to achieve this as well. Commanders’ friendships are not based on shared routines or some circumstances. They like to be friends with individuals, who share their passion for deep, meaningful conversations. Commanders seek individuals, who enjoy learning and development as much as they do. It’s not easy to be a commander’s friend as they demand a lot from this relationship. But they pay a great deal of attention to their friendships. And they make sure that this relationship never feels stagnant.
EVERYTHING’s BUILT ON IDEAS
Commander friendships are built on ideas. A lot what they find enjoyable is because of the thoughts they put forward. And defending them from assault from every angle. It is now proven that commanders are smart and highly critical. And they won’t back down if they are put on the defensive. It is not easy to be friends with commanders, who are big and blustery. And they do understand that others crumble under the force they apply. Especially, when they start to enjoy themselves.
RATIONALISTS, YOU GOT THEM!
The hardened rationalists can hold the grounds against the commanders. Because commanders neither need emotional support nor do they understand others’ need for it. And rationalists are just the right kind of individuals. Because we know insensitivity is the commander’s greatest weakness. They always challenge their friends and question their conclusions. They always dismiss emotional arguments as irrelevant. This becomes difficult for feelings oriented friends to cope up. For commanders, either a point is supported by logic or it’s just invalid.
PRISONERS OF OUR OWN MIND
Commanders recognize the area where they can learn from others. They know the area of their self-improvement is the realm of emotional sensitivity. Friendships with the Diplomat type can be rewarding for the commanders. This is because they share the Intuitive (N) trait with the commanders. This trait fosters an instantaneous connection between them. This bridges the gap between their uninhibited logic and the recognition that cooperation and conciliation can often accomplish more than what logic ever could.
FRIENDS WITH COMMANDERS- YOU’RE AN ANALYST
A lot of commanders’ friends fall into the Analyst category. As, they share the same passion for logical, far-reaching ideas and critical debate. Anyone, who can match commanders’ ability to brainstorm and critical thinking, you have got a dedicated friend. And for those who cannot, no hard feelings, but commanders are not your type of people.
