Just because I need to share the pain. [Feb. 7th, 2010|08:35 pm]
A man from a rural region decides that he's going a bit mad and decides to see a shrink in the city. First of all he, does a bit of research to see what sort of therapist he wants. He sees that there are two main schools of thought, Jungian and Freudian. After a bit more research he finds that the Freudian style is a bit weird, with all the oedipal stuff.

So he rings up all the other therapists in the city to try and get an appointment. They all are fine until they find out that he's not from the city, telling him they can't help.

When he talks to his friends in the bar, one of them shrugs and says that it was against The Rule. Confused, he asks, "What's the rule?"

"Ah", says the friend, "it's no Jung for country men."

Ok, 2 aspects to this.

Back in the early 20th century, there were two main leaders in Psychology: Sigmund Freud, and Carl Jung. We don't need to go into the differences, but it amounts to "Treat the patient as if they're still a bloody foetus climbing up mummy's leg to get back in" versus "Treat them as a human being with unique responses".

For exhibit B, I bring you to the saying, "It's no country for young men".

If you need any more of a hint, I despair. :)
