    Default Emotionally Crippled

    We do find it almost impossible to criticise those on whom we are dependent such as our parents. This is called 'repression' where we put negative feelings out of our conscious mind, and this cripples us emotionally.

    Carl Jung, Mrs Briggs and Mrs Myers, and mbti, take the role of our parents. And because we are dependent, we find it difficult to critique them, and it cripples us emotionally.

    Perish the thought. Repression is an involuntary, unconscious reaction. As such, repression is what sustains us in our interactions, so that we don't fall victim to negative feedback. What may cripple us emotionally is the encounter with repressed thought, which is what we are putting at risk by diving deep within ourselves.

    Carl Jung, Mrs Briggs and Mrs Myers, and mbti, take the role of our parents. And because we are dependent, we find it difficult to critique them, and it cripples us emotionally.
    You've got it all mixed up, fam. Jung is a rebel. And we who open our thoughts and minds to perspectives that run counter to tradition will actively undermine the authoritarian imprimatur of our upbringing--be it parental, social, or cultural in nature.

    Speak for yourself. When I was a dependent of my parents, I criticized them all the time.

    No, Jung, Myers and Briggs aren't perceived as parent figures for me personally. They were at one time, trail blazers in the field of psychology. Psychology has outgrown them so you could say that they were ancestral figures to psychoanalytics which has fallen out of favor.

    TypoC members are plenty willing to criticize their parents. Just check out the What parenting style were you parenting with thread. I don't think that's the exact title of the thread. It might be under quizzes. Anyways, they bash their parents here. Maybe TypoC attracts the type of people who are upset with their parents. I don't really know.

    Carl Jung freely chose to take his orders from the convicted war criminal, Reichmarshal Hermann Goering.

    And the USA chose not to prosecute some war criminals such as Ezra Pound and Hirohito, for political and social reasons. And the USA chose not to prosecute Carl Jung as a war criminal.

    So we do have to wonder why we are attracted to an alleged war criminal such as Carl Jung.

    Is it because we are emotionally crippled?

    Ha, yes. This explains my own perspective well. I've never had any trouble criticizing them...to a healthy extent, I think. I am not like some teen who constantly rags on how awful their parents are. Mine are simply very flawed people who had yet to get over their own familial issues. They were not-and still aren't-ready to be parents.

    I'm willing to bet that some of the musicians you listen to had sex with young girls back in your day, yet I doubt you actively and publicly boycott them.
