     Often we are asked to share a task with another person who is not relationally defined as either the leader or the follower.  In such instances the joint effort performance reflect not only the participant skills, but the emerging cooperation pattern that they adopted.  These configurations identify into the four subsets of the "affirm/defect" duality.  More specifically defined, they are: (a) We are both competent, (b) Neither of us are competent, (c) I am competent and you are not, and (d) You are competent and I am not.  The New England Patriots example "a", The White House leaks "b", Telsa screams "c", and Senior Care Residents weaponize "d".

                                 * applaud when you confirm "a" 

                                                * disbelieve "b", (even if you suspect true) 

                                                          *  go full-out mindful if you suspect "c" 

                                                                 *  run like hell from "d".
