Solving The Same Problem, Differently

Well, the garbage disposal, that’s our problem today.

Yes, ours is currently broken and it was midnight last night when you discovered this and you were about to call our friend George, get him out of bed, and get him to come over and fix that thing now.

That’s because I’m an aggresive problem solver. We know this about each other and you’re passive when it comes to problems.

Ya know what, let’s sleep on it. Maybe we will wake up in the morning, turn the switch on, and it’ll be working.

Twenty-five percent of our conversations, and every other married couples conversations, involve problem solving.

That’s right and once we understood our different approaches, it really helped us to work better as a team.

Well, it’s true for every couple, including you. Think about your problem solving approaches and how you can work together.
