Essence: Resentment about debtors.
Resentment about debtors
They resent the fact that other people are the reason that they are out of work. When they are made redundant they are terribly upset and disappointed. They believed in an ideal world and they are most disappointed when other people don’t live up to their promises. They had expected to be able to reap the rewards of their labours and now someone else isn’t paying up. Now they become cynical and withdraw into a world of silence and sullenness.
Resentment about their mistakes
If they have made a mistake themselves they can become equally cynical about their own achievements. They are very meticulous and precise in their work, as well as being very idealistic. So they don’t expect things to go wrong. When it does they tend to give up and become cynical about their own capabilities. They feel like going away somewhere where nobody knows them.
