56. Levels of emotional proximity with another person.
It seems that we can classify at last 5 levels of emotional proximity with another person to ourselves, from the ability of the other person and us to create the next 5 emotions in the following order (it is usually called the 5-A's)
1. Being accepted
2. Being approved
3. Being agreeable
4. Being appreciated
5. Being admired
There is more we can enlarge on the above. Especially on its relation to the tyranny of inappropriate over-familiarity.
