Prémio

19/06/2019
A empresa onde trabalho dá um prémio jeitoso por assiduidade perfeita, por mês. Prémio esse que é sorteado entre a percentagem dos dez mil trabalhadores da multinacional, só em Portugal, que tem uma assiduidade perfeita.
Dificilmente faria sentido para um britânico ou um europeu do norte. A quem não passa pela cabeça chegar atrasado ou faltar ao trabalho.
Um prémio por fazermos a nossa obrigação.
Não são precisos requisitos especiais, capacidades específicas a não ser a de cumprir horários.
É esse o mérito.

Ainda me lembro bem de a minha mãe me responder, depois de uma boa nota, não fizeste mais do que a tua obrigação.

Soube hoje que, no mês de março, fui eu a vencedora.
A coordenadora disse que era merecido. Afinal, há compensações e das boas para não fazermos mais do que a nossa obrigação.
Entre ingleses e alemães, ganhou uma portuga.
Papai havia de ficar orgulhoso. Na falta do pulitzer, é o que se pode arranjar.

Histórias e Mitos*

17/06/2019

Jung said that universal human experience is shared and relayed through story and myth.

Each of us are living our own myths and there are experiences and events that shape our myth.

As a human being we are confronted by situations that are archetypal in nature.

These events occur, sometimes only once, other times repeatedly.

Depth psychology attempts to help an individual to bring unconscious influences and beliefs into consciousness.

When we speak of depth psychology, in other words psychology that deals with the unconscious component in our psyches, we talk about therapy that address this unconscious component and its effects on the individual.

Jung offers a way of exploring these archetypal patterns and experiences through symbolisation.

To symbolise your unique experience in the world, you can relate your story to a myth, a song, a movie, a book, a picture, a painting or even a dream.

This form of symbolisation transforms your personal experience from a pedestrian meaningless story into a myth, with a magical, numinous quality. It will contain your experience and your story in a deeper more layered way filled with potential and meaning.

Myth contains this layered meaning as well and the power of myth is found not only in the stories from Greek and Roman mythology, but in modern day stories as well.

Any story that stays with you contains something which you are unable to consciously express or resonates at an unconscious level with your personal myth. These are wonderful gifts from the unconscious.

Os livros e as séries/filmes

15/06/2019

Diz-se que os livros são sempre melhores do que os filmes. Ou as séries. Não diria que são melhores, diria que são diferentes.

E, apesar de já ter lido muitos livros que se tornaram filmes, o que melhor conheço é uma série. Outlander, da qual posso falar com alguma propriedade. Visto que já vi as primeiras três temporadas umas 5 vezes e a quarta três. Já li os livros da metade do quarto para a frente, até ao último publicado. E comecei ontem o terceiro livro.

A série é muito mais romantizada

Jamie é um homem normal, no livro, um herói e um guerreiro a sério, como convém numa história de época. Um homem honrado, apesar da cabeça a prémio por crimes hediondos, para o século XX.

Especialmente entre os anos 40 e 70, onde se passa o resto da história.

É muito interessante, para quem um dia quis ser argumentista e ainda sonha conseguir escrever um guião para um longa, ver como eventos fundamentais da história podem ser protagonizados por outros personagens.

Isso também é criatividade

A cena de Claire a imaginar contar a Miss Figgs sequer existe no livro, nada alusivo a tal. Angus não tem qualquer papel no livro, Rupert tem bem mais. É ele quem ensina Claire a usar uma adaga. É Willie quem apanha Jamie com a mão no dirk depois de matar o tio Dougal. Collum não morre do veneno de Claire. Não precisa. É Jamie, no terceiro livro, que mata o corvo, e não um dos miúdos. Há coisas ditas na quarta temporada da série, que são ditas no primeiro livro. E faz sentido. Murtagh morre em Culloden. Daí que muito do que se passa na quarta temporada é inventado, recriado, e na quinta há de ser também, até se livrarem dele.

A cena dos remédios e dos ratos não é protagonizada por Jamie, na prisão de Ardsmuir. O que faz dele muito menos magnânimo do que o que parece na série. Já que, no livro ele, apenas troca os seus serviços de interprete pela libertação das correntes.

A cena mais violenta de toda a saga, entre Jamie Fraser e Black Jack Randall, é mil vezes pior no livro.

Claire, apesar de muito avançada para a época, é muito mais mulherzinha nos livros. E Jamie muito menos feminino, muito, muito mais macho.

Bree é irritante em todo o lado, no livro, na série e no instagram. Sempre enjoadinha, não há paciência.

Gosto muito da série. E gosto muito dos livros.

Que já tinham público. Mas eu, por exemplo, jamais os leria, muito menos compraria, se não fosse pela série.

Livros e série não competem um com o outro, complementam-se.

“Romanticism is an 18th century philosophical movement affecting literature and art, marked by an emphasis on the imagination, emotions and poetry, often very personal and with a penchant for emphasizing suffering.”

INFP Love: What Love Means to the INFP Personality Type

22/05/2019

For everyone falling in love and being in love are different experiences, for some it is one of the most important things in life. For others this might be something they are hesitant to experience, and might even shy away from it. Most INFPs are certainly drawn to the idea of being in love, wanting to experience a sense of passion and true romance which happens in movies and novels. For the INFP the more important benchmarks in life should be celebrated and experience with a sense of enthusiasm and intensity. For them, love is one of these things which should not just be swept under the rug.

They Fall Hard and Fast

INFPs often get an initial feeling about someone, something in their gut which draws them closer. When they meet someone they often know right away whether or not they can truly fall in love with them. Because of this they don’t like wasting their time when they don’t really feel that spark or connection. INFPs do fall in love fast, since they can feel when someone is special and when they are going to be capable of truly bonding with them on a deeper and more real level. They also fall rather hard when they do, this person they love becomes a part of them.

INFPs give everything when it comes to falling in love, and don’t like doing this halfway. They want to feel truly inspired by these emotions, and believe in really diving in. INFPs don’t want to hold back when they do let themselves fall for someone, instead they want to be surrounded by these feelings. They want to allow themselves to become so wrapped up in that they are living and breathing these emotions. INFPs want to experience things in a passionate manner, and don’t like feeling as if they have to hold themselves back from what can spark their soul.

They Make Love a Priority

INFPs do make love a priority when it finds them, and they don’t want to allow other things to come in the way. They also want the person they are in love with to feel the same way about them and their relationship. For the INFP having this type of bond and connection is something they should value and take seriously. They don’t want to allow anything else to seem more important, since love for them really is a priority. This doesn’t mean INFPs are incapable of having other things they are passionate about, they just don’t want something else to come in between them and this special connection. INFPs believe ni holding onto these values, and so for them love should always be a priority in their lives.

INFPs do care about a sense of independence and of having things which are their own once they really become comfortable with their relationship. But that doesn’t mean they don’t lose sight of making sure their partner is important to them. INFPs value the things which can leave them feeling inspired, and for them love is one of those things in life.

They Don’t Want to Lose Their Enthusiasm

INFPs really don’t want to lose their sometimes childlike enthusiasm when it comes to love and dreams. They are natural dreamers and often hopeless romantics, who just want to be capable of going after the things they really want. INFPs don’t want to settle for less than their dreams, and really want to reach for these things which inspire their souls. They need to remain connected to this part of themselves and never let go of the dreamer inside. This is part of who they are, and so when it comes to love they don’t want to become jaded or cynical. While some people around them might tease the INFP for their dreamer qualities, it isn’t something they can really compromise on. They believe in being true to themselves and want to uphold their sense of morals and sincerity.

They Love Deeply, So They Hurt Deeply

While INFPs love deeply and truly do immerse themselves in these feelings, this means they can also get hurt. When they fall in love it means so much to them, and sometimes it leaves them blind to the flaws in someone’s character. When this happens the INFP might only see the good in them, seeing the potential and what they can become. This belief in someone else can lead the INFP to getting their heart broken when they do fall in love completely. This doesn’t necessarily stop the INFP from taking chances again in the future, but it can set them back for a while. They often put themselves out there and wear their heart on their sleeves, which really does leave them exposed to getting hurt. While this means getting hurt, it really isn’t something INFPs can or even should change about themselves. Their openness and honesty is part of what makes them such giving people who are so capable of making a difference in the world around them. While it might be challenging for them when they get hurt, is also is what makes them love with such a deep and meaningful purpose.

For the INFP falling in love and being in love are often a big part of who they are. They have big hearts and are capable of truly loving with a sense of openness and depth. They don’t want to hold back when it comes to follow their dreams and believing that love is truly out there for them. While there might be times where the INFP feels a bit wounded, they often find a way to recover and open themselves up to the opportunities around them. Love means a lot to the INFP, even though it can be difficult at times to continue pushing past the heartache and experiences of the past.

The Shadow

21/05/2019

“The shadow is a living part of the personality and wants to live with it in some form. It cannot be argued out of existence or rationalized into harmlessness. This problem is exceedingly difficult, because it not only challenges the whole man, but reminds him at the same time of his helplessness and ineffectuality.

Strong natures – or should one call them weak? – do not like to be reminded of this, but prefer to think of themselves as hero’s who are beyond good and evil, and to cut the Gordian knot instead of untying it. Nevertheless, the account has to be settled sooner or later. In the end one has to simply admit that there are problems which one cannot solve on one’s own resources.

Such an admission has the advantage of being honest, truthful and in accord with reality, and this prepares the ground for a compensatory reaction from the collective unconscious.”

Carl Jung In: The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious

Mãe e Pai

20/05/2019

Se pensarmos no tipo que nos atrai, iremos encontrar certamente muitas semelhanças com a nossa mãe e o nosso pai, ou com quem de nós cuidou, ou um antagonismo total dos mesmos. Que vem da relação com a mãe e o pai, primordial, pela via dos nossos pais particulares.

Corroboro assim a ideia da noção que temos de amor, e que pauta todos os nossos relacionamentos, é a do modelo de amor que tivemos da nossa mãe… Desse modelo de vínculo.

Essa é a primeira das nossas ligações

Há uma citação de um jornalista, escritor, professor de que, e de quem, gosto muito, João Pereira Coutinho: Mesmo que a liberdade de escolha me leve a escolher maus caminhos, é preciso não subestimar a importância do erro nesse processo de aprendizagem chamado vida humana. Limitar ou abolir o erro deixaria os indivíduos num estado permanente de ignorância e infantilidade.

Nós não somos o que fizeram connosco, nós somos o que fizemos com o que fizeram connosco. Carl G. Jung
