Josh is charismatic, empathetic, conscientious, forthright, & strongly believes that the underlying unconscious/identification of a person is always seeking to find equilibrium with the ego and the super-ego. Which is a state in which every working part of a person’s psychology is in harmony. So that what they unify in construction, works at its most effective and efficient. As the great Clinical Psychologist Sigmund Freud once said:
“A [person] should not strive to eliminate [their] complexes, but to get into accord with them; they are what legitimately directs [their] conduct in the world.”
