Example text

Der depressiv Veranlagte schätzt die Autonomie und Unabhängigkeit des schizoid Veranlagten, während diesen wiederum die Geselligkeit und Verbundenheit des Ersteren anzieht. In Riemanns Modell, an dem sich psychoanalytisch arbeitende Psychotherapeutinnen und -therapeuten lange Zeit orientiert haben, lassen sich alle Menschen einer dieser vier Strukturierungen zuordnen. Dem je unterschiedlichen Angsttyp wird dabei ein prägender Einfluss auf die Persönlichkeitsbildung zugeschrieben, was ein weites Spektrum von verschiedenen Varianten möglich macht.

Immer wieder wird der Ausgleich zwischen Polaritäten gesucht: zwischen Anspannung und Entspannung genauso wie zwischen Leichtigkeit und Stabilität.
