    Re: take the other person's inventory?

    1 assess them
    2 taken the idea much too seriously
    3 don't ignore the kind of behaviour that forces people to change things to make an improvement (withholding affection and exclusion being the examples of this)
    4 Look at the context in which unexpected things occur
    5 keep probing until the truth emrges. The person may not know what makes them feel bad
