    Some creative people worry about analysis because they are afraid ending their hang-ups will end their creativity. Very funny. Reminds me of the people in AA who are afraid to give up their defects of character because then they won’t have a character. – As a creative writer for many decades I can tell you that the less nuts from Manic Depression I got, and the more clean and sober I got, the more creative I became.

    Guess what, psychoanalysis is really a joke, completely pseudocientific and as a therapy it has the same effect as placebo.
    More anecdotal evidence please.

    Pfft… and you say this.. because you have undertaken extensive treatment in psychoanalysis?

    I am currently having psychodymamic therapy for emotional problems and much of it is built on and merged with early theories of psychoanaysis. I do not find it a joke at all,on the contary its hard work, can be painful and uncomfortable but As a surrealist painter it speaks more in a language I understand on a deep level than other therapies, which I find not concerned with causes but symptoms, over intellectual and shallow.
