[SEU215a12]Like the next paper (‘Female Sexuality’), this was begun early in 1931 and finished during the summer. It is a late addition to the very small number of Freud's papers dealing with characterology. Though the topic crops up in a number of his writings (for instance, in the first half of Chapter III of The Ego and the Id(1923b), Standard Ed., 19, 28 ff.), only two of his previous works had been explicitly concerned with it: ‘Character and Anal Erotism’ (1908b) and ‘Some Character Types Met with in Psycho-Analytic Work’ (1916d). In the present work the subject is considered in the light of Freud's later, structural, view of the mind.
[SEU215a14]Observation teaches us that individual human beings realize the general picture of humanity in an almost infinite variety of ways.
