In the Identical relation, two individuals share a personality type. Identicals often do not realize their similarity right away. The attitudes are seen as normal processes of a human life, so acting upon these preferences does not cause alarm in the other person. The relationship is easy to maintain, but this can cause some disinterest. Not much communication needs to happen between Identicals for them to understand each other’s priorities. However, conversation flows freely because they can talk about shared process aspects of life with the same amount of confidence. They naturally give space to the other person when needed.
Identicals are oriented towards the same priority. They help each other achieve the goals of their shared first aspect, letting each other know better ways of accomplishing them. It isn’t taken personally when a partner has a different goal, as Identicals allow everyone the same independence as they have in the aspect. The individuals do not have to discuss their first aspect unless one of them finds an improvement in handling this area.
People in this relation share the same confidence level of process aspects, so they can talk at length about the observations of the second aspect and the insecurities of the third aspect. Identicals easily compare what they have experienced and learned about their confident process. They can have lengthy discussions that help each other broaden their worldview. Discussion does not have a particular goal in mind, so Identicals find it natural to have fun while exploring together. They can constantly adapt to and implement each other’s input. While exchanging information about the second aspect, they often relate it back to their shared first priority. It is rare to place limits on each other’s expression.
It is simple for Identicals to improve their already confident areas, but they feel more safe discussing their insecurities together than with other types who share the same insecure aspect. They know their attitudes in life are reflected by the other, so it is easy to mutually empathize with the inner conflicts created by the insecure aspect. They sort out all the negative thoughts about their insecure aspect while comparing tentative conclusions. Sometimes Identicals can be competitive about appearing more accomplished than the other in the insecure aspect of life. The confidence does not last long, and ultimately this rivalry is meant to reach a state of reactivity. When a conflict between insecure aspects happens, partners can confidently negotiate through their second aspect.
Identicals rarely communicate much about their shared oblivious aspect. Both partners do not spend much time thinking about their last priority, so it is often an irrelevant conversation topic. They both agree it is most comfortable to rely on other people to identify important goals for this aspect of life. When Identicals talk about their oblivious aspect, it is to solve problems relating to this area as quickly as possible.
This symmetrical relation is easygoing for both parties. They can talk at length without agitation although they feel understood without much effort. Identical relationships are comfortable yet not conducive to much growth outside of their confident areas. However, Identicals are great resources to learn how to cope with life most effectively. Through this relation, an individual can realize helpful and unhelpful ways to navigate the world by interacting with someone of the same attitudes.
