According to Adler, people develop a unique pattern of characteristics, behaviors, and habits, which he called a distinctive character, or style of life. He proposed four basic styles of life for dealing with several universal problems involving an individual’s behavior toward others, problems of occupation, and problems of love the dominant type, the getting type, the avoiding type, and the socially useful type. Complete the following 2 questions:
1. Explain and give an example of how a supervisor of the dominant type would handle a problem in an office while contrasting this style of life with a supervisor who exemplifies the avoiding type. How would each basic style of life be different, and how would they be alike?
2. Create a scenario of your own to connect to the 4 basic styles of life for dealing with universal problems and then give an example of how the problem would be handled with each of the 4 styles. Be specific with addressing factual points from the readings to back up your thoughts. Include in text citations and a reference citation at the end of your response, which includes the text and any outside sources in APA format.
