Question #1237724381Sunday, 22-Mar-2009
Category: Relationship Duality Theory
Is "codependency" mostly type-related behavior and if so, which types/functions are involved? Does the dual reinforce the behavior in an unhealthy manner, or lead the partner away from it? Or, are both equal "offenders"? -- Anonymous

A1 The essence of love is mutual dependency due to natural need fulfillment for both individuals. While I've only read a few books on "codependency", the theory seems like a somewhat negatively warped version of the truth. -- the Expert

A2 I think codependency is rampant among a lot of young people to start off. Maturity and experiences lead some to balance their needs and desire and decrease codependency. I see it in a lot of old people too however. -- Anonymous
A3 Codependency refers more to lack of vertical development (maturity) rather than horizontal development (type) and can affect all types. = ENFP -- energiecoach ENFP
A4 Codependancy originates from infancy, where a person handles being under the care of a person he or she finds 'threatning' or distrusting to deal with by either submitting (codependancy; NI and mentally staying as a child) or revolting (counterdependancy; SE and growing up to take care of oneself); this is the origin of ESTP and INFp where they faced the same situation in childhood and took different paths. -- Anonymous
