Let J be a set of types of subspaces of a projective space. Then a collineation or a duality is called J-domestic if it maps no flag of type J to an opposite one. In this paper, we characterize symplectic polarities as the only dualities of projective spaces that map no chamber to an opposite one. This implies a complete characterization of all J-domestic dualities of an arbitrary projective space for all type subsets J. We also completely characterize and classify J-domestic collineations of
