Covey explains the six paradigms of human interaction. The paradigms are the attitudes we go into the interaction with. The first paradigm is to “win”. In this approach, the person gets what they want out of the interaction. This is the most commonly used. This paradigm meets the person’s needs, and then leaves it up to others to fill theirs. The next is “lose/lose”. These people want so much for others to lose, that they do not care if they lose also. These types of people are miserable and have no sense of inner direction; they think others should be this way also, so they are driven to create losses for others.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
