Thanks to reddit I found this
today. It's been a long time since my Educational Psychology classes, and if we went over these classifications it was so brief that I don't remember it.
As I read though the descriptions I was reminded more and more of a description of a possible journey into poly, and how one might reach a point of autonomous relationships (or not). It also gave me another way to think about the various way one might react (be it a SO, possible SO, family member, etc) if the idea of poly were presented to them.
So, food for thought for me, and I'm going to look up some books to do further reading.
What do you all think? Potentially useful for discussions of various reactions to poly? Or other ways of being outside of the mainstream, for that matter. Or not so much?
