Wow, the shrink rap radio site is a goldmine, there are lots of interesting interviews on there…thanks!
I’ve listened to the interview with Jeff Raff, what he describes does fit nicely with the MBT model, just with more of a feel good fluffy side to it. He characterizes the relationship with his ally as a sort of love relationship, where he and the ally both grow spiritually. I haven’t read his books, but in the interview he seemed to be saying that anyone can build such a relationship (to me what he was describing was actually reminiscent of Christians who view God/Jesus as their close personal friend). I don’t know, but I think that individuals who can build this kind of relationship with NPMR entities are the exception rather than the rule, probably for the same reason that most people have trouble building this kind of relationship with PMR entities.
