individual, community feeling, and personal responsibility. Adler advanced an understanding of the relationship between inferiority feelings and striving for superiority. Arguing for equality between the sexes, Adler proposed that masculine opposition occurs in response to power vigorous and compensatory striving. If a man always felt inferior, then he might improve the aim of wanting to become superior. Now if the man had enough social interest he might attempt to succeed in life in order to become superior to others but if he lacked social interest then he might be a criminal (Alfred Adler, Individual Psychology of Alfred Adler 209-213).
Psychodynamics: This is the theory and systematic study of the psychological forces that underlie human behavior, especially the dynamic relations between conscious motivation and unconscious motivation. Sigmund Freud developed “psychodynamics” to describe the processes of the mind as streams of psychological energy in a natural complex brain. It includes all the theories in psychology that see human functioning based upon the interaction of forces within the person, particularly unconscious, and between the different structures of the personality. Adler affirmed that human psychology is psychodynamic in nature, yet unlike Freud that emphasized instinctual claims, human psychology is conducted by objectives and motivated by an unknown creative force. Like Freud’s instincts, Adler’s fictive goals are largely unconscious (John Bowlby, Attachment and Loss 13-23).
Social Interest: The social interest is a theory that attempts to explain the relationship between a person and the people he deals with in his society. Social interest is the certain for all the natural weaknesses of human beings. Social interest is a way of life; it is an optimistic feeling of confidence in oneself and a genuine interest in the prosperity and happiness of others. The role it plays in individual life is fictional goals and striving for superiority as a fundamental fact (Alfred Adler, Social Interest: A Challenge to Mankind 12-14).
Life Style: psychiatrist Alfred Adler used the term Life Style as one of the several constructs describing the dynamics of the personality. It reflects the individual’s unique, unconscious, and repetitive way of responding to (or avoiding) the main tasks of living: friendship, love, and work. This style, rooted in a childhood prototype, remains consistent throughout the life unless it is changed through depth psychotherapy. (Alfred Adler, Understanding Human Nature 79-82)
1.5.2. Limitation/ Delimitation
Delimitations include purposeful and planned steps to narrow the focus of study thesis. There are several delimitations in this research project. First though some researchers have examined the impact of others’ behavior on the role of woman, this thesis seeks to examine the interaction, social behavior of the woman, life style, and conscious motivation for the formation of thepersonality of a female character. Second though father or husband’s presence in her life as dictators, this study only tries to analyze the aspects of woman’s personal psychology that can challenge these environmental problems. Third, this study will only target social behavior, reactions, psychodynamic and feminine aspects of the character.
