Subserving Others May Be Bad for Me

  • James P. Gustafson

Abstract

Subservient people are by far the most common in a practice of psychotherapy, because, lacking power, they appeal most readily to borrow it from us. They have in common a posture of diffidence in relation to some greater power for which they have to beg. They vary in their color, tone, and shape, depending upon the place where they must subserve and be ill-used, and thus go by many different names that show their context or locale.
