Such a conflict may reflect values introjected (that is, accepted unquestioningly) from parents (see Chapter 4); • fear of taking risks: it is better to have the self-image of a person who has the potential to be a success than to take the risk of trying but failing and therefore having the self-image of a failure; • not taking responsibility for making decisions: people constantly seek advice from others, and therefore always have a convenient scapegoat if the advice works out badly for them; • a conflict between career needs and personal needs.
