All right, time for some news from the world of glitz and glamour, but we promise there’s a moral to the story.  Rumor has it that actress Jennifer Lopez and former baseball star Alex Rodriguez, who are engaged to  be married, may not ever make it down the aisle.  Sources close to the star couple are saying, “They are arguing frequently. There’s a lot of passion in their relationship,which helps and hurts the pair – especially when their personalities clash because you just know a blowup is about to ensue.”

Apparently things went south last week after A-Rod gave an interview about a dinner party he attended.  Detailing who was there, Rodriguez jokingly said, “The black guy from ‘The Wire’ — Idris Elba, yeah, and his new wife. Some famous singer next to me, I don’t know what her name is,” referencing his wife, Jennifer Lopez.  “We had Kylie and Kendall. And we had an Asian gentleman from ‘Rich Asians,’ the lead. Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is.”  Lopez reportedly was livid over A-Rod’s remarks, not appreciating how flippantly he spoke about a professional associate of hers (Kylie).

So does anyone know their Brain Types?  Lopez is a #1 FEAR, while A-Rod is a #5 FEIRtwo incredibly “in-the-moment”, spontaneous designs.  Notice the description of their relationship … “There’s a lot of passion in their relationship, which helps and hurts the pair, especially when their personalities clash because you just know a blowup is about to ensue…”  To be sure, ERs (known as SP “hummingbirds” in personality type circles), are some of the quickest of the 16 designs to react and respond (particularly Front brain ERs).  In sports, this makes #5s such great quarterbacks, and #1s such great boxers, sluggers, and point guards.  Now, pull them from the arena and place them in a heated discussion, and they will/can react just as quickly.  No one needed to tell us A-Rod and J-Lo were passionate people.  Brain Typists already knew this.  It would be helpful for J-Lo to know that A-Rod is predisposed not only to speak off the cuff, but to be funny, even sarcastic.  FEIRs love being witty, sometimes at others’ expense unless taught better.  A-Rod was trying to get a laugh in #5 fashion, and it cost him.  Conversely, it would be helpful for A-Rod to know that relationships are extremely important to his Animate fiance, not to mention #1s can be extremely protective of their relationships (mama bears).  With the knowledge of BTs, room for empathy can be given as we recognize each others’ strength and weaknesses.  In turn, we can strive to see them in ourselves and become better husbands and wives.
