1. The terms 'transference' and 'reality' are evaluative judgements, not simple descriptions of patient behaviour.

2. Transferences occur in all human relationships. The analytic relationship differs from most others in (a) the ways in which it facilitates the development of transferences; and (b) the ways in which it deals with transferences.

3. The distinction between transference and transference neurosis is quantitative and arbitrary; there is no standard of the amount of transference required for a transference neurosis.

4. Human behaviour, especially in analysis, may be at once experienced and observed. Not only may the analyst consider the patient's behaviour either 'transference' or 'reality', but so may the patient himself. The analyst can interpret only what he recognizes as transference; the patient can learn only from what he experiences as and himself considers transference.
