How You Are Who You Are, in Chaos Theory

Posted on February 3, 2016 at 4:18 PM
Here is a fascinating article by Norman Holland published in Psychology Today,  proposing the idea of personality as aa unique configuration of attractors (from chaos theory an attractor is a state towards which the system tends).

"We can think of our character, including our defenses, as a configuration of such attractors. That is, we will tend to respond to the ever-changing and random demands of reality (chaos) in ways that involve the least expenditure of energy. Our mental state will roll down, as it were, into the valleys. We will, therefore, tend to repeat the valley patterns of behavior."
