Filafob no compromises. Like any neurotic, the flatness of everything – his second Ya So just YES or NO, job or relationship, only freedom or encroachment on it. This is the main difference between a doubt mentally stable person and fear coming in excess of the categorical extremes, mentally unstable person.
  • Complexes, going from childhood. Do not grasp the head, moaning: "These psychologists always problems from my childhood to explain!". Yes... unfortunately, adult life, as they say, situations childhood are not thrown away. "All men..., - day after day convinces mother, who is not lucky in relationships, his little daughter. – Play the game and leave with a baby. Them for one thing only. Stay away from them".
