We communicate daily. And we can notice that some people have an obvious facility to "communicate better" than others. This is due - in part - to their ability to understand and adapt to what their interlocutor wants. Knowing how to communicate is what transactional analysis can teach us. But what is it exactly?
Eric Berne, American psychiatrist of the 20th century, is the father of what is called transactional analysis. This method allows to analyze the personality of an individual and its impact in his relationships with others.
According to Eric Berne, our personalities are built according to a well-defined model, which is composed of what the psychiatrist calls the "ego states".
These "states of self" are three in number, and are all present in all of us. However, we can choose how much to use them to facilitate our communication with different people. And especially to better satisfy our desire for recognition.
In this article, discover some basics of the theory of transactional analysis, to understand a little better in what it consists. Two great foundations of transactional analysis are described and explained: "ego states" and communication laws, called transactions.
