I.e. look for infantism – the transfer into adult life of infantsurvival strategies. It’s a ‘bottled up’ disorder – needs unbottling. Ditch the DSM.2. the sufferer works hardest – what we’re asking for is that the sufferer swap theirvery foundation stones – their very mental security – hard work, requiring bucketsof reliability and trustworthiness.3. find what the sufferer can’t – their software bug – the sufferer has neededthese factoids to survive, so cannot evaluate them sufficiently, unsupported, toadapt to adulthood.
