Discovery of the Nature of Interpersonal Communication

Communication implies establishing a code to relate with others within a particular environment. From an essential point of view, the purpose of communication is either functional to work or functional to pastime.

Communication Concept

On the one hand, we define work as the human activity carried out to generate added value and gain the corresponding counterpart. On the other hand, the objective of pastime is to obtain emotional benefits and generate pleasant transactions using the communication as the vehicle. The unicist ontological structure of interpersonal communication includes:

  1. An adaptation process to generate added value to the environment and obtain the counterpart.
  2. A process of introjective empathy. The individual that is communicating introjects the object of communication in order to apprehend reality.
  3. A process of influential sympathy. This requires individuals to “vibrate” syntonized with the environment they are communicating with. Having influential sympathy requires influencing the syntonic “vibration” with the environment to ensure the possibility to share experiences with others.
  4. A participation process. When pastime is the goal, participation processes have to be the implicit purpose of communication.
  5. A projective empathic process, which is the starting point of any communication. Communication begins with the projection of ourselves we make on the external reality.
  6. A process of emotive sympathy, in which both sides discover they might share the same emotions.

The change of languages

Adolescents promote the change of languages. Thus they build a parallel world to fit in. A cultural nucleus is strong when it neutralized most of the changes promoted by adolescents. A cultural nucleus is weak when adults copy the language of adolescents. In this sense, the behavior of elites defines the strengths or weakness of a culture.

The moral aspects of psychopathic leadership

There are three different drivers of psychopathy: amorality, pseudo-morality and immorality.

A special characteristic of social behavior is that the instinctive behavior is expected to be limited to those aspects that only belong to the intimacy of an individual.

Psychopaths always have a rational justification for their behavior and they need to find it in any of the three drivers of their justified behavior.

  1. Amorality allows using an anti-social cleverness in which the smart-aleck is a paradigmatic example.
  2. Pseudo-morality allows using the justification of anti-social behaviors based on a supposed superior morality for the benefit of the psychopathic moralist.
  3. Immorality allows using the justification of relativist behaviors where the end justifies the means just for the benefit of the psychopath.

The Solitude of Power and the Power of Solitude

Leadership implies integrating an existent authority with a necessary participation within the limits of non-exerted power.

The active function of leadership is participation and participation implies being able to exchange with others. Therefore participation is only true when individuals are able to do their part alone and are willing to share.

People who cannot deal with “something” cannot share with others because they have “nothing”. In this case participation becomes a manipulation to avoid assuming the responsibility of what one needs to do alone.

Leadership drives naturally to solitude. Leadership can be exerted if an individual is driven by self-fulfillment and sustained by the power of solitude.

Self-fulfillment implies that a leader is doing something that is meaningful and is part of what s/he loves.

Individuals can do what they love and/or love what they do. Both aspects are part of self-fulfillment. This allows leaders to go beyond existing boundaries and develop maximal strategies.

On the other hand, minimum strategies require that the leader be able to solve the problem for her/himself. To do so leaders need to be able to access their internal power in solitude. Minimum strategies imply assuming the full responsibility for making things happen.

The Power of Freedom: External freedom to do

Individuals have two types of freedoms that they need to manage: inner freedom, in order to expand who they are, and external freedom, to expand what they do.

External freedom needs inner freedom to exist. Nobody can have the power of external freedom without having achieved inner freedom first. The pathway towards external freedom requires having achieved inner freedom and being able to manage time.

External freedom implies assuming the responsibility to do while being conscious of the actions that need to be done to adapt to the environment. This is the definition of free will which is a basic condition for democratic environments.

Free will can only be exerted by individuals who are adapted to the environment, have assumed a responsibility in the environment and are conscious of their actions. Freewill cannot mean doing what one wants to do. It necessarily implies the integration of the needs of all the participants in an environment. Absolute free will is an anarchic / individualistic behavior.

Unicist Thinking: Apprehending the Nature of Leadership

This is just an example to explain how to emulate a given reality in mind using the unicist thinking capacity in order to apprehend its nature.

The unicist ontology of leadership describes the nature of leadership in order to be able to use the adequate leadership for any situation.

Understanding the nature of leadership is basic to find the natural place to develop one’s activities. It also helps to understand how to influence people and how to respond to the influence of others.

The basics of leadership

Leadership is based on the need to sustain one’s authority. The participation of others is a condition of leadership. A leader is such because s/he is followed.

Therefore, in terms of the unicist logic, participation is the active function of leadership and the energy conservation function is given by the power a leader has to impose her/his authority. But this is a sort of paradox.

The energy conservation function is given by the power the individual “does not use”. If the power is used it consumes energy and, in fact, a double amount of energy, because:

  1. To impose something there is a need to exert power and consume energy.
  2. When power is exerted, authority is being lost, because it means that the authority of the individual has not been accepted. And in this case, an additional amount of energy must be invested to reconstruct the value of the authoritative role.

Participation poses another paradoxical dilemma:

  1. When the authority of the leader is extreme, for example a religious leader, the participation is not possible.
  2. When the participation is extreme, there is no possibility to accept an authoritative role.

Emulating Leadership in mind

The double dialectical thinking is what allows defining the concept of leadership. The construction is described in the following chart:

To make a valid emulation, the supplementation and complementation needs to be defined.
