People can live out the same life script but using different currencies. The ‘thing’ you use to live out your life script can differ but there is still the same life script out come.
Eric Berne proposed three script outcomes
Someone who gets where he intends to go and has a good time doing it.
In a Winner’s script the strokes are positive - they are highly charged and the ending is pleasant.
Eric Berne describes a Winner as someone who accomplishes his declared purpose, and does so from an I’m OK You’re OK position.
The non-winner’s script is Banal. It has no highs or lows, and is based on the philosophy of “at least....”.
This script includes both positive and negative strokes, and neither are of great intensity.
The profile of this type of script is - Work Hard. Play it Safe. Live life along the lines of the greatest majority. Put up with things. Aim for the middle of the road.
The formula is to avoid exciting situations or risky endeavours.
To avoid uncertainty, the people with this type of script will operate more from the Adult ego state and less from the creative Child ego state.
This can be a high energy script, and it can often end in tragedy.
Strokes in this script are often negative.
The ending of the losers script is predictable and usually unpleasant.
The disastrous outcome can range from less severe to most severe.
Each of these can be lived out using different currencies. Below is a questionnaire to discover your script currency.
