As a rule, however, the negativistic reaction does not appear merely as accidental, but as actually preferred to the correct reaction. In ordinary external negativism which consists in the negation of external influences (E x. Command) and of what one would normally expect the patient to do (E x. Defaecation in the closet instead of the bed), the following causes are at work: (a) The autistic withdrawing of the patient into his phantasies, which makes every influence acting from without comparatively an intolerable interruption. This appears to be the most important factor. In severe cases it alone is sufficient to produce negativism. () The existence of a hurt (negative complex, unfulfilled wish) which must be protected from contacts. (c) The misunderstanding of the surroundings and their purpose. (d) Direct hostile relations to. the surroundings. (e) The pathological irritability of the schizophrenic. () The pressure of thought and other difficulties of action and of thought, through which every reaction becomes painful. (g) The sexuality with its ambivalent feeling tones is also often one of the roots of negativistic reaction. Inner negativism (contrary tendencybpposed to the will, and intellectually opposed to the right thought is accounted for, in large part, by ambitendency and ambivalency, which in view of the inner splitting of the thought renders intelligible a slight preference for the negativistic reaction. Very pronounced phenomena of inner negativism probably have other cooperating causes, which we, at the present time, do not know.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of his
