While preconcepts are functional to solve the problems of reality, individuals appear to assume the responsibility of making things happen.
Resistance to change can be produced by the change itself or by the intrinsic needs of individuals.
Change resistance passes through three stages in order to avoid a change:
1) Dominant influence to avoid change – Stage 2 starts if stage 1 fails
2) Manipulative influence to avoid change – Stage 3 starts if stage 2 fails
3) Destruction and self-destruction to avoid change
The process is recurrent. This means that, although it begins with stage 1 and continues with stages 2 and 3, it might restart again until the individual who is destroying the change finds a way to adapt to it, to destroy it or is excluded.
Individuals who cannot assume the responsibility of a change need to be excluded during the change transition. They might return after the change has been implemented.
But this exclusion must occur before the individual starts with the manipulation process. Afterwards it is too late because the exclusion hurts her/his self-esteem and makes her/his recovery impossible.
