Example text

It connotes a physical, bodily reaction to a situation; one is physically present. Sensation is distinct from what Jung means by ‘feeling’ (‘Gefühl’), which he separates completely from bodily perceptions. g. I like or dislike, it is good or bad) (Jung 1921/1971: para. 723–5, Jung 1935b: para. 45). This is an unusual use of the term in both German and English, which was questioned when he introduced it (1935c: para. 44–59). This does agree with the German word ‘gefühlsmassig’. Jung assigned ‘feeling’ in opposition to ‘thinking’ when defining the four basic psychological types.

Personal expectations are also implicit in the formation of RIGs1 (Stern 1985), which are considered to be the forerunners of complexes (Jacoby 1999: 56).

As helpful as the original theory of schemas was as one of the first attempts to describe memory, in my opinion it fell short of explaining the emotional and unconscious nature of the complex.

Disgust/contempt: disdain, scorn, abhorrence, aversion, distaste, revulsion, contempt when directed outward. Shame/humiliation: guilt, embarrassment, chagrin, remorse, regret, mortification and contrition when directed inward. Surprise: shock, astonishment, amazement, wonder. Joseph LeDoux states that, due to the great diversity in the neural basis of specific emotions, it is doubtful that a single, general-purpose system of emotion will be found. If such a system is envisioned, it will most likely involve synthesising across the findings for specific emotions (LeDoux 1995: 210).
