Faux-Identicals generally appear to have similar attitudes towards all aspects, yet as they start to develop a closer bond, it becomes clear how different their processes and expected results are. If these types remain too close, they feel as if the other is never truly listening or helping. This relation does not generate much conflict despite the influences of their opposing sextas. Where one partner is picky, the other is carefree, so they coexist in relative harmony. Most of the confusion in this pair occurs when identifying the most important results out of the same situation. Boredom ensues when the other talks at length about their interests.
Partners react similarly to each other’s dominant aspect because of the symmetry of the relation. One perceives the other as quite competent in their first aspect and freely commends their attentiveness. There is a sense that they are alike except that the other partner took a flexible interest one step further and handles it with more seriousness. The results partner wants conciseness when the flexible partner discusses the aspect without any critical points. Meanwhile, the flexible partner thinks there is always a benefit to exploration, and therefore the results partner could afford to open their awareness of their dominant priority. Even if they do not naturally agree on what to do with their dominant aspects, Faux-identicals appreciate what the other contributes.
Unconfident areas of this relation also symmetrically differ in process and results. Where one partner is insecure in an aspect, the other is unconcerned about it. Questioning the ability of everyone to handle a certain priority, the insecure person feels like the unconcerned person does not take their concerns seriously. The unconcerned person would rather the insecure person handle the aspect because they seem to care more about the details. If discussing the insecurities does not culminate in a way to move on, the unconcerned person will determine the most important points to a result. Partners do not directly conflict over their unconfident areas as their fourth aspects are very tolerant to extreme reactions. The Faux-identical relation illuminates how people can be similar but bring wildly different expectations to the relationship. Partners learn that people are not wrong for wanting a faster or slower pace to their priorities.
Although what has been stated above sounds quite positive, the true nature of the Faux-Identical relation is one of mutual boredom and indifference. There is no interest in processing out information that drives each partner to intrigue and fascination. They also have wildly varying goals which become pointless when in the other’s presence as they do not take a similar approach in their orientation. The Faux-Identicals usually have no interest in getting closer to one another, as nothing truly inspires them to do so. They may be able to discuss broad concepts that are common in everyday conversations, but the lack of depth becomes so quickly apparent to both people. The grand part about this relation is that neither partner is offended by the disinterest and can usually move along in their way without much to say.
The Faux-Identical relation can offer insight into the opposing sexta to your own. Understanding how priorities switch for your partner gives great awareness of how to deal with your Conflict relation. If one can emulate the disposition of their Faux-Identical, they may learn how to communicate with their Conflictor to some extent.
