One of the aspects of psychosynthesis that I have found most interesting is the concept of sub-personalities. Roberto Assagioli, who founded psychosynthesis, believed that different aspects of the personality functioned like the players in an orchestra – they could be in tune with each other or out of tune. He believed that the Self acted rather like the conductor in the orchestra, and that the more obe became aware of one’s sub-personalities, the better you could get them to work together. Interested in how people view their sub-Ps and what lessons they have learned from identifying them. Remember this is a public forum so please only comment to the extent that you feel confortable. I will make my own observations as comments on this message.
Hello. This is Peter responding to Peter. One of the sub-personalities that I find most interesting is the Wounded Dog. Of course, this sub-P appears in many disguises, but all are essentially a “victim” type that bites viciously when stroked in the wrong way. My own character was a Wounded Monk who carried a large knife under his monk’s habit. I will tell you the story of discovering my sub-P sometime but just wanted to share this with you now!
