So: somewhere in the back of my head there is a giant table on which things get taken apart and put back together, and lots of what gets fucked around with in this manner is human interaction. ('Cause I'm both good and bad at it. You'll see.) Sitting on the table currently is what I know about Peter Nguyen, the owner of my clinic.

His business practices state clearly that he doesn't know how to motivate people. That he has not yet figured out how means that he doesn't know what motivates people, because from what to how is a step of reading a few management books and a couple hours thinking. If he had the basics it wouldn't be taking this long. His avoidance and distance from the therapists means that because we are even further outside his ideology, he is made uneasy by his lack of control over the interaction, which is a standard human response. So I have one archetypal baseline to play with. Maybe I'll not-quite-flirt with him and make him even more uneasy? But it would be difficult to make sure that he didn't react by withdrawing further and staying walled off. Maybe I'll get someone to have a convoluted argument with me on therapist ethics and maneuver him into mediating so that he has both people and ideas to deal with. Hmm . . .

I've talked to him, tried explaining us to him (which is why he thinks I'm a basketcase), as have other therapists, and that has not produced any noticeable changes (other than the basketcase thing). So probability say that he lacks, 8 chances in 10: imagination/empathy to connect our experience with his, 2 chances in 10: enough awareness of himself to connect to other people period. This will require research and thought before the pranking can begin. Because knowing your mark is fundamental to the dance. :)
