The duality relation is the most compatible relationship between both partners. Duals incentivize each other’s growth in weak areas while feeling valued for their strengths. It’s easy to think a dual is good at life, but that’s only because they possess the confidence in aspects of life that are not shared. As you get closer to your dual, you realize your false idealization of them when they consistently do not attend to aspects of life that you regularly dominate. Duals both admire each other’s strengths and naturally teach each other how to navigate weaker priorities in life. This symmetrical relation benefits both partners.
Duals are quick to come to conclusions about their results functions. The partner’s 1st function leads the other due to their easygoing fourth function. The partner with the 4th function follows the advice of the other and really pays attention to how they address their confident area of life. Understanding exact steps helps the partner achieve the desired results of the 4th function quickly. The partner with the 1st function feels deep support from their dual when they allow independence in their most prioritized aspect of life. Their dual listens with interest when they express ideas, even rudely, about their 1st function.
In this relation, duals allow each other to discuss at length the process functions. The partner’s 2nd function opens up their dual’s deep insecurities. They talk about their dual’s insecurity without pressuring them to form any commitments about this aspect. This process gets the partner out of their comfort zone while respecting their boundaries. The owner of the 2nd function enjoys the challenge of exploring the options of their dual’s process aspect. This ability to speak about the process aspects of life reveals that the duals are strong where the other is weak. This pairing sustains long conversations without much effort. The partner’s 3rd function feels ready to express doubts and questions about their dual’s more confident aspect. They feel free to indicate when their dual is wasting their time on options, when normally they would not engage with this insecurity regularly. Feeling accepted by their dual, the insecure partner does not try to hide their quirks.
Duals feel comfortable and challenged by each other, which keeps the relationship interesting. The mutual support makes each partner feel superior and inferior depending on which aspects of life they are conquering together. Duality allows each partner to be themselves more than any other relation.
