Preferred social situations for the Relater:

- Participating in the group's communication and activities

- Performing regular activities in the same way, at the same time, and at the same place (bowling or golf leagues, bridge club, poker night, etc.)

- Communicating in a conflict-free environment with associates or friends

- Settings that facilitate easy conversations

- Wanting to know how to play games or complete activities through well-defined, step-by-step procedures

- Feeling appreciated and well-liked by others, just for being who they are

- Participating in organized activities where they can demonstrate (and be appreciated for) their expertise

- Conversing logically about areas of personal knowledge, adding key input to the conversation
