Gender ​ ‐ biological differences between men and women that become social distinction in most  societies.  Gender identity ​ is the process, occurring in early childhood, of coming to identify oneself as female or  male.  Sexual identity​ refers to the biological differences in the genetic composition and reproductive  structures and functions of men and women.    Wolffian ​system is for males. Under the influence of testicular testosterone, the wolffian system  develops, and the mullerian inhibiting substances cause the mullerian system to degenerate.   Mullerian ​system is for females. In the absence of testosterone, the mullerian system develops into  female reproductive ducts and the wolffian system fails to develop.   We are all conceived the same; as female.  In the first month we all have male and female parts developing testis or ovary.    Individuation ​is the process of self knowledge.  Individuality is uniqueness.  Individualism ​is self focused narcissism.    Traditional authority​  is the superego, customs, precedents, what's been done, gives us our roots,  stability, divine rights  Rational authority​  is the ego, order by law not by inheritance, code, reason, science‐universe, law,  logic, etc.  Charismatic authority ​ is the id and governs by experience, creativity, transcendent, unconscious,  intuition, and is often irrational     1. Aphrodite shows Psyche a huge pile of seeds of many different kinds mixed together and tells her  she must sort these seeds before nightfall or the penalty is death.  2. Psyche is to go to a certain field across a river and gather some of the golden fleece of the rams  pastured there.  3. Psyche must fill a crystal goblet with water from the Styx, a river that tumbles from a high  mountain, disappears into the earth, comes back to the high mountains again.   4. Psyche is instructed to go to the underworld and ask Persephone the goddess of the underworld,  the most hidden, the eternal maiden, queen of mysteries ‐ for a cask of her beauty ointment, which  Psyche is to deliver to Aphrodite.  *Know how these tasks relate to the development of the female psyche.     What is the ego?  1. Orients us to time and space.  2. Differentiation, separateness, and uniqueness.  3. Establish an identity through making connections  Ego ​‐ center of decision making abilities, center of our will power    Fears of the ego:  1. Fear of being smothered.​   2. Fear of being abandoned.​   3. Fear of being attacked.​  4. Fear of being exposed.​   5. Fear of destructive instincts.  6. Fear of change​.  7. Fear of the unknown (death).      Too much unconditional love:  ‐ Put on a pedestal  ‐ Does not get feedback.  ‐ Results in​narcissism.  Too little unconditional love:  ‐ Neglect.  ‐ Too much feedback.  ‐ Criticism.   ‐ Results in becoming a ​people pleaser.  ‐ Overly adaptive.    What grows the ego:  Gratification ‐  ‐ Satisfying pain through soothing.  ‐ Satisfying our needs.  ‐ Comforted, therefore, I can trust life.  Stimulation ​‐  ‐ Tells the ego "it is."  ‐ Touch, speaking, feeding, reading,and playing.  ‐ Challenges or awakens ego to environment  Approval ‐​  ‐ ok to be me  ‐ You are wanted  ‐ You belong  ‐ Not approved/rejection, we dump into unconscious.  Ego defenses ‐  1. Repressed ‐ put back   2. Suppressed ‐ never comes up.   3. Project‐ throw out.      Masculine pattern ‐  ‐ Begins with arrogance (too much ego).  ‐ Must sacrifice ego to find humility  Feminine pattern ‐  ‐ Begins in humility and submission.  ‐Must find self worth
