ESI's in therapy

4D's meeting minutes made me realize that our ESI's are in need of some emergency therapy on one another in this blog AND asking for it.

Just as a starter, I'm concerned about Aggie's violent tendencies -- and the Chair's closed emotions. Let's start with those two problems. So, why would Aggie get violent? Hours and hours of arguing leading to a clock being thrown . . . Is this reasonable anger, or does this show that deep down Aggie could turn murderous, given the right provocation?

I wonder if her years of being "too nice" have created an evil alter-ego that should remain emotionally shackled except for in controlled environments. Perhaps, at the next ESI meeting, someone should bring a pillow and urge Aggie to punch it while she yells.

Next -- the Chair referred to his emotional distance issues. No doubt, he was "joking" in the meeting -- but -- we know how many of us use humour to relay the truth in a less threatening way. Maybe the Chair should be banned from humour for a while? Maybe then his emotions will get closer to his heart instead of his mind?

Well, Conchie, it's all easy for you, isn't it? Skip the meeting, read the minutes, make your spot diagnoses and solve everyone's problems from the safety of your shell!

What about your desperate need to be in the limelight and next to the glamourous? A need so desperate that you'd miss an ad hoq meeting of the Irregulars?

How should we treat that issue?

And do you not sometimes withdraw into your shell, ma'am...?

I don't think my issues were on the agenda. And perhaps my shiny shell is meant to attract, and to protect. Ergo, nature isn't an "issue".
And truly, I'm sorry I missed the meeting, but that was one swanky party on Friday night.
But Coyote makes me wonder, maybe I do retreat into my shell more than a conch shell needs to. That's it, I'm finding a new pic!

And what about your pop psychology analysis of 4D and the IO? Yes, definitely bring a pillow to the next ESI meeting.

Aggie -- I re-read the meeting minutes the 4D and Coyote didn't "ask" for analysis, and IO wasn't there.

Watcha gonna do with that pillow when she brings it, Ags...? Just askin'...
