Poltawska’s „Objectivizing Psychotherapy” (OPT). An interview with a former patient. Figure 3.

D. Figure 3. Self Determination as a tri-polar structure.

I – Middle pole = Self-dependence (Sd) is SD’s core; Sd = dependence on truth which calls „to be good” (be dignified).

II – Upper pole = I decide as „self’s subject” (= fact); see B/4.

III – Lower pole = I constitute about myself as the object „self” (It’s more important – axiological -aspect!). In the acts of SD, the interrelational structure is realized: Self-Governance (SG) and Self – Possession (SP) which really constitute (C) the human person’s „self”.
