Janet: ... I must ask about the 'coincidence' of [three co-workers] having a goal of Dominance.
Often those who wish to learn a new facet of use/aim for Dominance will congregate to showcase that which is appealing, that which is not, and then to calibrate one's own Goal to be more personal than simply driven.
This is true of all Goals, actually.
Acceptance will congregate. Submission, Discrimination, etc.
Janet: That makes sense. It would be interesting to poll other students to validate this.
To be clear, this is not meant in terms of "all Acceptance will be drawn together" or "all Growth will be drawn together," but meant more in terms of "if another facet of Acceptance is sought to be practiced/discovered/aimed for, then there would tend to be congregation," etc.
Some Goals, such as Acceptance, are more prone to consistent congregation than other Goals, such as Flow.
Janet: It must be somewhat unusual for those in Dominance to congregate.
MEntity: Actually, it is not as uncommon, since Goals such as Discrimination, Acceptance, and Dominance tend to become quite tunnel-visioned.
