The Crowd

If in a case of hysteria, has managed to bind a typical symptom, with a personal event or a series (like associate hysterical vomiting with impressions of disgust), us could disorient, see that the interpretation of another case of flu-like symptoms, concerning the influence of another series of different factors vomiting. In such cases, we are inclined to admit that that is, in the case of hysterical vomiting symptoms, are causes that are not visible and hysterical data provided are accidental pretexts, which at the moment are used as feedstock for the rhetoric in question. Some fear the narrow streets and others the wide; some can not walk down the street but when there are few people, and others, on the contrary, feel comfortable in the crowd. The subject suffers from a process that can not do anything else that displace or replace his obsession, replacing one absurd idea, by another that is perhaps what less, apparently, changing of cautions and prohibitions or varying of ceremonial. You can scroll the coercion, but not delete it. This capacity of displacement of symptoms, from its shape primitive to another far away and different, constitutes one of the main characters of the obsessive neurosis, condition in which lies the unique circumstance that oppositions (polarity) that fill the emotional life, shown notably accentuated. Along with the obsession of positive or negative content, it appears in the intellectual field, a State of constant doubt that extends to all the vital areas of the subject and imbued with a perpetual indecision that depletes it and impoverishes. This situation, are very striking, while classically it is people of strong character, a great tenacity and high intellectual level, with a moral discipline held until the scruples and an extreme correction.
