I thought this would help me *find* a partner, or help me choose better, but it mostly didn't.
help you interpret your responses.
Have you ever wondered why you are specifically attracted to one particular person or type of person instead of all the others? Dr. Harville Hendrix has figured it out - that we are acting out unhealed childhood wounds from childhood in our current relationships while our partners are doing the same with us. To that end, we seek out, without realizing it, partners who will stimulate those old wounds to create an emotional "re-run" so that long-sought healing can occur.
It sounds complicated, but it's not. It is quite elegant, and brings into view the underlying dance that goes in in every relationship, and gives you the ability to change the parts of the dance that hurt. If you read the book and really do all the exercises, you will have a lot of understanding about how you do relationships, plus practical tools to make them better, and you will have saved many therapy hours and dollars in getting there.
