    Default Supervised Duals

    How should someone deal with a dual that is currently being supervised?

    I imagine that there would be different approaches that could be advised depending on the specificities of their relationship to the supervisor, your relationship to the dual, and the extent to which the dual wants to continue their supervisee relationship.

    Its probably naturally really easy to make them feel better. Talk and what you bring up will spring them to talk. And when they do, if youre really attentive and enthusiastic about what they express, they'll feel great since that's been shut down by the supervisor
    Projection is ordinary. Person A projects at person B, hoping tovalidate something about person A by the response of person B. However, person B, not wanting to be an obejct of someone elses ego and guarding against existential terror constructs a personality which protects his ego and maintain a certain sense of a robust and real self that is different and separate from person A. Sadly, this robust and real self, cut off by defenses of character from the rest of the world, is quite vulnerable and fragile given that it is imaginary and propped up through external feed back. Person B is dimly aware of this and defends against it all the more, even desperately projecting his anxieties back onto person A, with the hope of shoring up his ego with salubrious validation. All of this happens without A or B acknowledging it, of course. Because to face up to it consciously is shocking, in that this is all anybody is doing or can do and it seems absurd when you realize how pathetic it is.
