I Don’t Want No Bad News – but I am Curious about This News: Our Polarized Reactions to Negative Feedback
I suggest that there is often a polarity operating when we are faced with the prospect of receiving negative feedback
We observe an important shift from the social/political system in our third assumptive world to the medical system in the fourth world.

The Four Assumptive Worlds of Psychopathology III B- The World of Distorted/Inaccurate Views of Reality
Though some of the traditions from the east value the ‘originality’ and consider any adaptation as deviations from the real, it was almost impossible to ‘protect’ them from modifications.
