What are the 4 Fuhgedaboudits When Interacting with Someone with a High Conflict Personality?

Interactions with someone with a high conflict personality often become contentious and you may eventually get upset, storm off, or simply feel inadequate. We’re often left wondering why our best skills don’t work in these interactions. 

A primary reason for this is because we often respond in a way that doesn’t work — our own defaults that work well with most people. 

There are 4 Fuhgedaboudits in high conflict interactions that will revolutionize them. They are necessary but we often forget about the 4 Fuhgedaboudits.

In this episode, Megan and Bill will explain what they are and why they’re so important.
