  2. 2. Warning: This part of Psychology of Motivation seems to be hard to apply to ourselves despite its accuracy. The economic bankruptcies of our democracies are the consequences of our personal psychic failures. They reveal our exaltations to the multitude of worldly desires and our eternal thirst pseudo recognitions.
  3. 3. Human being may yet be a hero for himself if he can discern the unchangeable from what is editable. He can achieve or sublimate his desires and dissolve them. He can defend family, friends, values and develop an infinite number of creative solutions to improve its situation. These solutions result from his imaginative capacity rightly MOTIVATED thanks to his personal balance and inner harmony (see Greek Myth of Perseus). beheading of Medusa by Perseus Few people know withstand the swelling of their ego, especially in this time of so many vain entertainment and communication supports.
  4. 4. HOW DOES IT WORK? Psychic functioning This calculation is based on 4 main reasons that escape to his conscious but which are one of the expressions of our unconscious: “The false motivations."

  5. 5. Vanity 1.To socially exist and try to build his personality , human puts himself forward; he acts and speaks to show himself, especially in adolescence. Pushed by his imagination and his own conviction force, he goes too far: this is one of the faces of Vanity.

Culpability M E O T H E R S Self distrust The functioning of the Extra-conscious psychism falsely motivated Construction of the conscious ego and perception of others 2. By ambivalence, human can inhibit and withdraw into himself with the feeling of not being up to those he meets. He may feels too much guilty. These two ambivalent poles can be expressed in multiple stages, in various forms and in any occasion of everyday life. The swing from one pole to the other leads to mistrust ourselves, often repressed.

Fear the reaction of others Vanity Accusation Culpability Sentimentality The projection on others: The 4 Trends False Motivation M E O T H E R S Projection: shift the blame on others Projection: take pity to have a good conscience Fear the reaction of others Other distrust Self distrust Generally, we repress our vanity and our guilt often to project them onto others. The sequences of minor but daily elements close this evil square and scatters our psychic energy.

The 4 Trends False Motivation The oscillations increase and reinforce themselves by intricacies (see scheme black arrows ) Paul Diel details these mental states that lead to the destruction of personality. Vanity Accusation Culpability Sentimentality M E O T H E R S Self distrust Other distrust Destruction of the Personnality
  8. 8. False motivation and its infinite expressions A common symptom in each of these expressions: Exaltation.
  9. 9. Fear the reaction of others Vanity Accusation Culpability Sentimentality M E O T H E R S Projection: shift the blame on others Projection: take pity to have a good conscience Fear the reaction of others Other distrust Self distrust If the 4 trends of False Motivation dominate the psychic qualities disappear and the character becomes psycho pathologically nervous or banal, so sick.
