The Radiance relation is one of the best relations in Attitudinal Psyche. Besides Duality, it ranks as the most compatible. This relationship generally feels inspirational and is quick to create a spark in interest between both parties. There is an inherent difference between the attitudes of two people in a radiance pair, yet a bond that draws them in. Though this relation is asymmetrical, there is a balancing effect that happens in the atmosphere of communication between them. As each person gets to know one another, they transform the initial spark into inspiration to both propel and reach their desires. There is rarely a dull moment between these two.
No matter what aspect you consider between both partners in this relation, there is a balance between aggression and passivity. This balance keeps the radiant relation from ever running stale or feeling too off-keel. Partner 1 will lead with their first aspect that matches the fourth aspect of partner 2, whereas partner 2 returns the favor by using their second aspect to lead partner 1 in becoming positive within that process. One partner is reliable with their results-orientation, and the other with their process-orientation. This creates a remarkably interesting and well-oiled system that incorporates the Semi-identical and Ignoring attitude relations to enhance compatibility.
Everyone has two Radiance relations in attitudinal psyche. You are the results leader/process follower (R+/P-) in one of your Radiant pairs, and the process leader/results follower (P+/R-) in the other. This means that you are more of the decision maker in one pairing, and the inspirer in the other. The interesting part of one’s radiant pairs is that they are each other’s Conflict relation. This brings us to the insight that conflictors have the same aggressive and passive aspects in opposing positions. Your tendency of which radiant pair you are better suited to depends on which two aspects you prefer to be in ideal positions. You have two people who hold the same attitude towards the outside world yet are totally opposite regarding their attitudes of their own dealings with the aspects.
Oftentimes you will be more drawn to one of your radiant pairs than the other. This could be due to many factors including life circumstances, focus on certain aspects relevant to your interests, or reactivity versus dormancy of your third aspect. Generally, the more reactive your third aspect is, the more you will be drawn towards the process leader (P+) Radiant partner. The more dormant your third aspect is (or even more secure it is), it is more likely you will be drawn to the results leader (R+) Radiant partner.
Regardless of which radiant relationship you are more drawn to, there will always be one thing present: an ignoring of the shared third and fourth aspect (Ig). If your Radiant partner has your third aspect as their fourth aspect, generally you will both ignore it. The other party may trust your advice or what you have to say on the matter since your third aspect is more aggressive about it and they have an others-positive view towards that aspect – or they will quickly decide what they want, expecting communication to halt. For the other pairing, this works the same way.
All in all, your Radiant relations are great opportunities for growth, a spark in creativity, and overall happiness. There is a push to enjoy life to the fullest between these pairs – even the bad or negative experiences. We could refer to this relation as semi-duality as it is as close as you can get to duality without having perfect attitudinal matches.
