The Psychology of Nine Types of Bad Lovers

  • Aug 14, 2009

You won't like these nine Enneagram Types of villains. Claudio Naranjo lets all their passions, pathologies and neurotic motivations hang out. These secret soul pictures aren't pretty.

Still, imagine how fascinating fiction would become if every writer had access to psychologically correct evil from a psychiatrist and psychotherapist who is considered one of the pioneers of the Human Potential Movement.

Nine villains exposed with all their malicious mischief -making, nakes so you can see how  their all-encompassing self-denial enables them to hold their heads up in self-righteous rationalization, ciriticism, blame and judgment of others.

Naranjo says it best, The reason for the misery of the world lies in the misery of the soul. And these are black souls these nine have, deliciously destructive to others as well as themselves.

Wondering how these nine villains love? In Part III titled The Disturbances of Love, Naranjo also solves one of the most elusive mysteries of evil characters, the pathologies and neuroses that impede their giving and receiving love. Naranjo shows nine types of bad love, how these nine conquer, control and leave a wake of miserable heroes and heroines.

If you read or write fiction, even if you don't, you can discover nuances of character that show why people behave the way they do.

In these 185 pages, Claudio Naranjo even invites you to change yourself and the world with this knowledge.
