The Neurotic Personality of the New Times. Analysis of Personality in Postindustrial Transformation
Languages of publication
In the age of industrial capitalism modal personality was oriented towards fulfilling one’s obligations. The new economy, to a greater degree than industrial economy, appeals to the need for self-fulfillment. The decline of industrial society does not entail an increase of serious psychical threats or a rising number of suicides. The change of personality connected with the new economy tends towards individualization and growing significance of creativity and autonomy. The neurotic personality of the new times is an effect of conflicts between the will to attainment, possibilities and responsibility as well as between the pressure of creativity and psychical stability.
