Classification of theoretical patterns of crisis-repair sequences. Schematic picture of the five patterns and the frequencies of their occurrence. Pattern 1 ("jump in - jump out", V-form): Deteriorations developing in leaps from one session to the next, comprising one session only and being repaired in the following session. Pattern 2 ("jump in - slide out"): Deteriorations developing in leaps from one session to the next, comprising one session only. Gradual repair, comprising more than one session (at least two). Pattern 3 ("slide in - jump out"): Deteriorations developing gradually over more than one session, being repaired in the following session. Pattern 4 ("slide in - slide out"): Deteriorations developing gradually over more than one session, being repaired gradually (repair comprises more than one session). Pattern 5 ("complex pattern"): Sequences in which two or more ruptures are separated by a change of direction. (Crisis events occurring within single sessions were not taken into consideration).
