This may not be the best thread to have posted this on, but regarding this idea:
The other day I was scanning through an article about a stay at home mom that would be in a bad mood sometimes because she lives where she works and thus she had no way of separating her home from her work and she felt responsible for the state of the house, etc, while the husband could go to work and then come home and he could keep his work at work and his home at home. Many of the comments on the article were from working women who said that they felt the same way despite working outside of the home. I wonder if looking at these situations through Dramatica's concepts of Linear and Holistic problem solvers might not be able to explain a bit of that.
Here's how I see it. If a Linear Problem Solver comes home and is tired, he wants to attack that problem in a direct manner. Thus he scoots the clean clothes that are lying on the bed needing to be folded over to one side, lays down, and rests for a few minutes. The Holistic Problem Solver, however, cannot do this perhaps not because the house is both her home and her office and she is unable to separate them (remember, working women said they felt this way too), but because the clothes, though scooted over, are still in the space that she tends. And though scooting the clothes over gives her a place to lay down for a quick nap, they still represent a pressure point creating a deficiency of cleanliness within the house that affect her ability to relax while laying down. For the Linear thinker, the clothes, once scooted over, are no longer directly in his path and thus no longer a problem.
