"DRIVING FORCES IN NEUROSES....Dread of losing caste ('humiliation' ), whether through external circumstances or through factors from within.....Feelings of superiority over others because of being perfect; Dread of finding flaws within self or of making mistakes; Dread of criticism or reproaches.....All neurotic persons are markedly unstable in their self-evaluation, wavering between an inflated and a deflated image of themselves. When a neurotic trend is recognized it becomes possible to understand specifically the reasons why a paricular person is aware of certain evaluations of hemself, and represses others, why he is consciously or unconsciously exceedingly proud of certain attitudes or qualities and despises others for not discernible objective reason."
