1,848 views

Published on

In agitation, the person is discounting his ability to act to solve the problem. He feels acutely uncomfortable, and engages in purposeless, repetitive activity in an attempt to relieve the discomfort. Energy is directed into the agitated activity instead of into action to solve the problem. During agitation, the person does not experience himself as thinking.

  3. 3. Passive behaviors • When I discount, I do so by making statement to myself in my own head. • Thus a discount itself is not observable. • Since you can’t thought read, you have no way of knowing I am discounting unless I speak or act in some way which indicates the presence of the discount.
  4. 4. Passive behaviors • There are four types of behavior which always indicate that the person concerned is discounting. They are • Doing nothing. • Over adaptation. • Agitation. • Incapacitation or violence.
  5. 5. Agitation • The class of students is listening to the lecturer. At the back of the room sits Adam. • The lecturer is speaking rather quietly and Adam has difficulty in hearing him. • As the lecture period goes on, Adam has more and more trouble following what lecturer is talking about. • He puts down his pen and starts drumming his fingers on the desk. He is waggling his foot rapidly up and own in time of his finger drumming.
  6. 6. Agitation • Adam is showing agitation. • In this passive behavior, the person is discounting his ability to act to solve the problem. • He feels acutely uncomfortable, and engages in purposeless, repetitive activity in an attempt to relieve the discomfort. • Energy is directed into the agitated activity instead of into action to solve the problem. • During agitation, the person does not experience himself as thinking.
  7. 7. Agitation • If Adam were using his clear Adult, he could simply attract the lecturer’s attention and ask him to speak up. • As it is, his finger drumming and food waggling do nothing towards solving his problem. • Many common habits entail aggression. Nail biting, smoking, hair twiddling and compulsive eating are all examples.
