As the years wore on, it became clear that her ambition—and not her sex drive—had been the animus of every escapade. A person doesn't bootstrap her way to media royalty by snoozing over the typewriter. At age 71, she was still doing book tours that could've exhausted Russell Brand. And writing, at some length, about penises.




Fathers' shortcomings, on the other hand, are often sins of omission rather than commission. In this age of unpaid alimony, workaholics and elderly fathers doting on the tots of their second families, there's plenty of animus to go around.


libido

plural li·bi·dos
  1. 1:  instinctual psychic energy that in psychoanalytic theory is derived from primitive biological urges (as for sexual pleasure or self-preservation) and that is expressed in conscious activity
  2. 2:  sexual drive


Carl Jung, the father of analytical psychology, was born on this date in 1875. Jung believed that extroversion and introversion were integral in the study of personality types. He also theorized that there is a female element in the unconscious of men — the anima — and a male element in the unconscious of women — the animus. Jung believed that people share a collective unconscious, appearing as archetypes, including mythology, and symbols and patterns that appear in dreams. Although he worked closely with Sigmund Freud for some five years, and was thought to be Freud's likely successor, Jung finally broke with Freud over their different definitions of the word "libido," and their diverging belief in the part sexuality plays in the development of neuroses.
