Compensation (psychology)
« on: December 17, 2012, 12:22:14 PM »
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


In psychology, compensation is a strategy whereby one covers up, consciously or unconsciously, weaknesses, frustrations, desires, or feelings of inadequacy or incompetence in one life area through the gratification or (drive towards) excellence in another area. Compensation can cover up either real or imagined deficiencies and personal or physical inferiority. The compensation strategy, however does not truly address the source of this inferiority. Positive compensations may help one to overcome one's difficulties. On the other hand, negative compensations do not, which results in a reinforced feeling of inferiority. There are two kinds of negative compensation:

Overcompensation, characterized by a superiority goal, leads to striving for power, dominance, self-esteem, and self-devaluation.

Undercompensation, which includes a demand for help, leads to a lack of courage and a fear for life.

Origin

Alfred Adler, founder of the school of individual psychology, introduced the term compensation in relation to inferiority feelings.

In his book Study of Organ Inferiority and Its Physical Compensation (1907) he describes this relationship: If one feels inferior (weak) he / she (usually) tries to compensate for it somewhere else.

Adler's motivation to investigate this was from personal experience. He was a very sickly child. He was unable to walk till he was four because of rickets. Then he was victim of pneumonia as well as a series of accidents.

Adler also "transferred" this idea of compensation to psychic training.

Narcissistic people, by compensation theory, mute the feelings of low self-esteem by:

•talking "highly"
•contacting "highly admired" persons

Narcissistic children try to compensate for their jealousy and anger by:

•fantasizing about power
•fantasizing about beauty
•fantasizing about richness

Think wisely before you speak and listen intently to the people with fruit on the tree. Break down the barrier of stubbornness and pride otherwise you'll always be a part of the crowd..
