In a recent candid sit-down together, TV-reality stars Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce) and Khloe Kardashian (his step-daughter) discussed their strained relationship over the last few years, primarily beginning around the time when Bruce was transitioning into Caitlyn. Remember, once a talented Olympian, Jenner is a #15 FCIL, while his daughter Khloe is a #1 FEAR. As such, they are almost complete opposite Brain Types, sharing only their Front brain executive functions, such as higher energy levels that dictate many cerebral processes including a tendency toward ‘extraversion’. Yet, as we pointed out sometime ago, not only are they quite different in Brain Type, but also in the brain itself.
While Jenner told Diane Sawyer, another #15 FCIL, a few years go My brain is much more female than it is male, we assured our readers that, physiologically, such is not the case. For one, the male brain is typically about ten percent larger than the female brain. The parietal region is also thicker in the female brain, making it harder for them to mentally rotate objects. Women often report difficulty with spatial tasks, both on tests and in real life. Thirdly, men rely heavily on the amygdala in the right hemisphere of the brain, while the female has a greater inborn capacity to engage both amygdalae. Males also have more gray matter, while female brains have more than 9.5 times as much white matter, the stuff that connects various parts of the brain. The frontal area of the cortex and the temporal area of the cortex are more precisely organized in women, and are bigger in volume.
We could go over countless other differences between the God-given male and female brains, but for now we wanted to highlight Khloe’s feelings about her former dad. In the conversation (the video can be seen below), Khloe tells Caitlyn, “For me, you’re all I remember … Bruce was. So not having you in my life is a huge blow. So I’m like, “Ok, my second dad, this guy that I’ve grown up with that raised me, was taken away from me, but no one really let me have that.”
While such a transition would be hard for any daughter, Khloe seems to have taken it much harder than her Inanimate, dominant Conceptual sister Kim (#13 FCIR). Khloe remarked, It was very hard for me to experience a lot of new things so quickly, and still feel like I have to protect my mom, and certain things that were happening, where I felt they might not have been the most positive.” This reaction really comes as no surprise, as the #1 FEAR is grounded in here-and-now reality. To suddenly be forced to ‘pretend’ her father is now a woman would not come easily for the dominant reality-grounded Empirical Khloe, and still apparently does not. Says Caitlyn to Khloe in the discussion, “Over the last year and a half, we certainly have grown apart. Ai??Day after day after month after month, nobody calls, nobody checks in.”
For those who don’t know, the #1 FEAR is the most likely BT to check in with family members (especially parents). Many #1s connect by phone daily! For there to be this major a rift, things aren’t looking good for their relationship. Get on the bad side of a#1, Cait, and his or her affections will go south in a hurry. Sadly, not good in a family relationship
