Inexperience (Meng)

Metaphors: Enveloping / Clouded awareness / Young shoot


Social Aided by enthusiasm, dialogue action may succeed despite inexperience, provided appropriate guidance is sought with the right attitude.

Subconditions:

1. Discipline is a necessary counterweight to dissipative carelessness in dialogue action, although excessive discipline has itself a crippling effect on the development of dialogue potential. (Resulting in: Deficiency).

2. Tolerance of shortcomings is a prerequisite for assumption of social responsibility by the dialogue. (Resulting in: Deterioration).

3. The inexperienced dialogue does not develop by applying itself to simple problems which readily offer themselves for solution. (Resulting in: Remedial action).

4. The dialogue entangled in action fantasies of imagined significance can often only free itself by experiencing the humiliation which finally results. (Resulting in: Transformation threshold).

5. The inexperienced dialogue that seeks guidance in an unassuming manner may develop successfully. (Resulting in: Barrier dissolution).

6. Constraints should be applied to the dialogue that persists in careless action, but only to prevent unjustified excesses. (Resulting in: Controlled threat).

Transformation sequence After overcoming problems of inexperience, initiatives await further support. (Resulting in: Waiting).
