TTS Part 6: Creator Mentality & the LSPM
The Drama Triangle, by Steve Karpman, forms the mindset of those who play relationship and/or psychological mind games. David Emerald's Empowerment Dynamic is the positive opposite of the model. These patterns are neither true nor false, they are each a MINDSET that gives us a way to see ourselves, others, and the world in general. When we adopt one of these mindsets we act out the roles. Our communication pattern is a major clue to us that we have been triggered into a reactive ego-state. The language of the reactive, triggered parts-of-self is always Victim Mentality! When we remain in growth mode, we can tell because the language of our proactive, executive functioning self is always Creator Mentality!The question we need to ask ourselves is: "Which of these two mindsets is productive and which is destructive? Which mindset helps and which one hurts?" When we get triggered into survival mode we can be sure the victim mentality will come with that. When we are in growth mode, it is easier and more natural to adopt the roles in the creator mentality.
