The Masculine/Feminine Pattern signifies the integrated duality of agentic, individual striving and communal, group collaboration. It is one aspect of the more foundational Pattern, Polarity. Masculine/Feminine demonstrates the relationship and interplay between agentic action and communicative inclusion. Initiative taking and timely action must be balanced with the communication and inclusiveness required for initiatives to be supported. The role of Masculine/Feminine is to free up energy through the free functioning integration of action and inclusiveness.
The principle of inclusive action: the enduring health of any system depends on the appropriate balance and integration of the masculine orientated proclivity for action with the feminine orientated desire for communication, for a given context.
