FIRO-B stands for Fundamental Interpersonal Relationship Orientation-Behaviour, a research based model which gives guidelines for improving our skills in this area.
Before we deep dive into this theory, let's figure out why IPR is vital for sanity. We find in nature animals of same species live together. We are also not an exception and call ourselves as social animals. Psychology reveals we derive our identity only because of other human beings around us. This means for me to know who I am I have to be constantly reminded by others.
It is frightening to know if we are left in an island where no one is there we will become insane in less than 60 days. You must have seen the movie "Cast Away" which revels this fact.
Alas! We abuse the people around who are helping us to maintain our sanity.
