We get along better when: We are personally content. We accept others as individuals. We listen well. We use our manners. We use our words. We are respectful to ourselves and others. We care about the health and longevity of our relationships. We collaborate rather than compete. We are courteous. We are generous. We are forgiving not forgetting. We are supportive and encouraging of ourselves and others. We are honest. We act assertively and not aggressively. We are motivated by seeking an equality of satisfaction regarding individual interests and mutual benefit rather than seeking fairness as measured by getting an equal amount of the same thing. We are kind rather than nice.
