How to test for vulnerability</a>

Have you noticed that some people tend to take offense at the same things more often than others?

For a sensitive person a serious reason to inflate may become someone's unkind look in his direction. Others, on the contrary, are unperturbed, it would seem, under any circumstances.

And to what type do you take yourself, how vulnerable are you?

You will need

  • Desire to understand yourself and a little time.



To answer this question, you will need a desire to understand yourself. And since this is not easy, there is some time for it. What would be able to test themselves on vulnerability, We give you a little clue - deal with the concept of "complex".
Psychoanalysts who first talked about thisConcept, argue that the complex is an energetically charged place in the human psyche, the entry into which is painful enough for the individual. Complexes are always associated with significant events and things, and there are individual and universal. In your life there are significant things and events? We believe that yes. So your vulnerability Is directly proportional to the number of such things. Concentrate, write down, count them.


But there are also universal complexes - common for all strings, which, if touched, can cause a strong emotional resonance. They are divided into three groups:
- Complex of person. Here we are talking about those things that a person calls first of all, presenting himself. It can be social status, nationality, machine and so on. As a rule, for women the most significant and painful of the complex persona is their own appearance, and for men - the level of income and potency.
- Professional complex - will cause doubts of others about the level of your education.
- Parental complex - when you put the reputation of your parents and children under attack.
Here it is clear and without checking and counting - they are for everyone, which means that you are vulnerable at least three points.


The things listed above indicate that you haveVulnerability and influence it. This is in principle normal. But to reduce vulnerability, you can learn to react constructively to a situation or a harmful offender, thereby strengthening your rear.
