Transactional Analysis Life Positions Poster

Based on decisions made in infancy, we assume one of four basic psychological life positions, which to a large extent determines our pattern of thinking, feeling, and behaving. The challenge is to become aware of our life position and if necessary, create a healthy alternative.

The four life positions were developed by Frank Ernst into the well-known OK Corral shown in this poster.

Read Transactional Analysis – Part III (The Scripts We Follow) for details of the four life positions.
