We don't fit neatly into boxes and yet we need categories and generalizations to communicate. Frankly language itself is about using an agreed upon set of letters to form words we all understand in order to communicate. TODAY I am using these categories in the area of gender from the historical way we categorize as: women and men. I also need to say that as individuals you will have varying degrees of attachment or experience in both. For example, I'm personally a bit more masculine in my approach than I am feminine BUT I do better when I recognize the value of both and allow myself to lean one way or the other based on the circumstances of any interaction.

Today we are looking at: motivational differences, functional differences and emotional differences in the way we network AND build relationships.
