Defensive. Feels his position is threatened or inadequately established. Determined to pursue his objectives despite the anxiety induced by opposition.
Stress resulting from the effort to conceal worry and anxiety under a cloak of self-reliance and unconcern. (I relate a LOT to this)
The existing situation is disagreeable. Feels lonely and uncertain as he has an unsatisfied need to ally himself with others whose standards are as high as his own
, and wants to stand out from the rank and file. This sense of isolation magnifies the need into a compelling urge, all the more upsetting to his self-sufficiency because of the restraint he normally imposes on himself. Since he wants to demonstrate the unique quality of his own character, he tries to suppress this need for others and affects an attitude of unconcerned self-reliance to conceal his fear of inadequacy, treating those who criticise his behaviour with contempt. However, beneath this assumption of indifference he really longs for the approval and esteem of others.
Disappointment leading to assumed indifference.
Becomes distressed when his needs or desires are misunderstood and feels that he has no on to turn to or rely on. (I kind of halfway relate.)
Egocentric and therefore quick to take offence.
Urgently in need of rest, relaxation, peace and affectionate understanding.
Feels he has been treated with a lack of consideration and is upset and agitated as a result. Regards his situation as intolerable as long as his requirements are not complied with.
Wants to be valued and respected and seeks this from a close and peaceful association of mutual esteem.
