Sample text

The dreamer is guided by a tendency in the selection of his thoughts. We know the force which select; it is the individuality of a person, his unity, his goal; and so we find in this one aspect already that here the individuality reigns and not the common sense. The person attempts to solve the problem by selecting a picture which produces an emotion suitable to his life style. What happens through the emotion is what he would have done anyway on account of his individuality. The dreamer wants only to strengthen himself, to justify himself.

The child is urged daily to get beyond his difficulties to a point where he finds security, where he can expect satisfaction of his needs. But goal setting must precede this. Thus we must understand the striving for significance as a function rooted in biology, although not in the form in which we see it later on as striving for superiority. If this were the case, then of course one would arrive at the conclusion that man, so often greedy for egotistical power, is evil by nature.

The clash between such a life-style (lacking in social interest) and the outside problems (demanding social interest) results in shock. This shock leads up to the individual’s failures—which we know as neurosis, psychosis, etc. Significantly, the failure shows the same style as the individual. As I mentioned before, the life-style persists. In the fourth type (the socially useful type), prepared for co-opera­tion and contribution, we can always find a certain amount of activity which is used for the benefit of others.
