Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Psychoanalytic Review. LI, No. 4, 1964-1965: A Psychotherapeutic Investigation of Nagging. Edward S. Dean. Pp. 15-21.

Using a few well-chosen clinical examples, the author describes people who have a leading character trait of nagging, which he believes to be based on a feeling of weakness. Nagging is the projection of a high ideal that has not been met and it leads for a time to a feeling of some power. The person who is nagged, the 'naggee', is often patient, tolerant, quietly capable, with great self-control and concern for others. The guilt of the 'naggee' is easily aroused and he accepts it. This reviewer adds that the usefulness of the article may well be that a therapist who reads it may become aware that among the pitfalls of therapy are the roles of nagger or 'naggee' that the therapist assumes without awareness, and particularly that he is inviting the patient to play the contrapuntal role, especially in termination.
