The previous post talked about script payoffs being banal or tragic. Under the classification system shown here the loser life script is the tragic outcome and the banal outcome is the non winner and there is a third outcome that of the winner. So this system defines what is the healthy position. This classification system however raises some interesting moral and philosophical questions.
In almost every society the percentages of each life script type is:
Winner = 20%
Non winner = 60%
Loser = 20%
The non winner would never do this. The winner or the loser might. In some ways the line between winner and loser can be very thin.
Two will be non winners, one will be a loser and one will be a winner, but which ones?
Over time each of these four women will make a series of decisions such that their lives end up in one of the three ways. Most are unaware of this process and it will just seem natural and right for them to make such a series of decisions over such an extended period of time so they end up either a loser, non winner or winner.
