Who is the beneficiary in this scenario?
First, I'd like to thank every single one of you for your contributions, and apologize for being absent this long. I was abruptly sent offshore, and had no access to internet, but I've finally returned to civilization.
As cavacava pointed out, I've stipulated a scenario and would like others to answer based on the scenario provided. I'm not debating at all that there is only one beneficiary in the interactions presented. In fact, I believe it is mostly always the case that both parties are beneficiaries albeit in different ways.
Hanover, no, I'm not trying to decipher personality or value traits based on the answers. I know you said, you can't provide an answer to each scenario based on the example provided, but I invite you try. Go with your guts feeling and Guess if you must. Pretend that you had to. Again, basing your answer on the scenario stipulated. Think about it.
I said I would reveal more, and while I did not plan to do so immediately, a lot of time has passed already so I will. The goal here for me, is not to try and interpret personality based on your answers. What I'm trying to do is construct a model which explains the action of "kissing". I understand there might be other models out there, but I'm trying to come up with one myself which satisfies me. Your answers will influence my thinking and constructing of this model. You might not see the connection, but I will reveal more about my model in due time.
Just for your information, you may or may not find this interesting, but I actually came up with the Benign Violation Theory on my own. (Which relates to philosophy of humor; this theory is one of few which explains humor) I have a nag for this.. sometimes I can't help but deconstruct a certain action or reaction or emotion or interaction and create models and theories to explain what's going on, and right now, my object of analysis and deconstruction is "kissing".
