  • ✪ Sternberg's Triangular Theory of Love
  • ✪ Top 10 Tallest NBA Players Ever


Let's talk about a theory of love. Sternberg has a triangular theory of love which I like to draw in circles, but, his triangular theory of love suggests that there are three components to love: your commitment, your passion and your intimacy. So let me draw that. I draw it as interlocking circles because it's easier to see the intersection of those places than it is in a triangle, but it is the triangular theory of love. So intimacy. And by intimacy what we mean is ... who do you tell your secrets to? This is not sexual intimacy. This is who's your best friend, who do you tell everything to, who do you trust? And with that person you have an intimate relation. And the second one is passion, and that's where you get physical passion, and I don't need to explain that to you. And the last one is commitment, and this is a long-term commitment. Are you committed to that person do you live together, are you married, do you have some sort of a long-term commitment? And by the intersection of those circles you can get eight different types of love. So the first type is non-love, and non-love is what you would have for me as your instructor. I don't love you, you don't love me, that would be creepy, right? So there's no love between us. You would never say about me "I love her" and I would never say about you "I love you." The second one is liking, and if you like somebody then you have intimacy with that person. So I'm going to put the number ... well ... I'm going to point to that one. You have intimacy with that person, but you're not passionate, you're not physically passionate, and you're not committed to them in any long-term way. So when you think about a friend and you say "Oh, I love that person," you do love them, but it's really liking. The third one is infatuation, and if you're infatuated with somebody you have passion for them but you don't have commitment. So you're not committed to them in any long-term way. You actually don't know them very well either, so you're not intimate with them. So you have passion only. That would be infatuation - that's passion. The fourth one is if you have commitment only, then that's empty. Why is that empty ... empty sounds sort of sad. And it is sort of sad. If you have a long-term commitment with somebody who you don't know very well, or you don't share any secrets with, and you don't have any physical passion for, that's what Sternberg refers to as empty love. And if you think about a couple that might be staying together for the sake of the children, they no longer like each other, they're no longer physically passionate with each other, but they do remain committed. So that's why it's called empty love. So then I can draw that over there. Now let's talk about the intersections of any two of these. So if you have intimacy and commitment without passion, think about what that might sound like. You share all your secrets with that person and you have a long-term commitment with them, but you don't have physical passion. You think about a couple that may have been together for a very long time. They sleep in separate bedrooms. They still love each other, but they're not physically passionate with each other. That is companionate love. One of the mistakes that students often make is they call that compassionate love let's remember that it's a companion and it's not pity. This is not pity love ... there's no such thing in Sternberg's theory as pity love but there is a companion, and it can be very fulfilling. You know, many of these types of love can be fulfilling without having all of them. Another intersection would be the idea that you are intimate with the person and passionate, but you're not yet committed to that person. And that's what we call romantic love. Romantic love is when you're dating somebody and you've been going out with them for a while.There's physical passion, you share all your secrets, you tell them everything, no detail is too small, but you're not yet committed in any long term way. That's romantic love, and that's the kind of love that we often talk about when you say "I just fell in love with somebody." The third one which is a little bit rarer and it's actually a term that you hardly ever hear, so please email me ... fatuous love. You never hear anywhere outside of developmental psychology or psychology in general, so if you ever hear that word send me an email. Fatuous love is the presence of commitment and passion without intimacy. So what would that be like? You don't know the person very well, yet you engage in a long-term, committed relationship with them and you're passionate about them. Think about somebody who runs off and gets married. You say "Wow, they've hardly known each other and yet they got married. There was this two-week whirlwind courtship ... that's fatuous love. And then the last one is consummate, and that's the gold standard. That's the presence of intimacy, commitment and passion. It's got all of those three things. You know the person really well and you share their secrets, you're physically passionate and you have a long-term commitment. Now I will say that's consummate love ... that's the gold standard in a Western situation. Not all societies ... you know this is a very Western model, so when you think about the different kinds of love, think about what the ideal would be in another culture, because this is a relatively culture-specific.


Early life

Eaton was born in Buena Vista, Colorado and grew up in Arkansas City, Kansas. He graduated with a B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Kansas in 1963. He was in the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.


Upon graduation he joined General Motors and in 1973 he was made chief engineer of GM's new front wheel drive X-body cars. In 1982 he was promoted to vice-president of advanced engineering before being named president of GM Europe in 1988. It was here that Chrysler Corporation CEO Lee Iacocca found Eaton and hired him to be his successor as CEO. This was controversial at the time, because Bob Lutz was the expected successor to the CEO position, and Iacocca later indicated that he indeed felt that Lutz would have been the better choice as his successor.[2]

Eaton was the Chairman and CEO of Chrysler from 1993 until 1998. In that position, he was responsible for the sale of Chrysler Corporation to Daimler-Benz, which formed DaimlerChrysler.[3]

He was a chairman of the National Academy of Engineering. He was elected a director of Chevron in September 2000.[4] He has been on the board of International Paper. He is a trustee of the University of Kansas Endowment Association. As of 2003, he lives in Naples, Florida, with his wife, Connie.
