Millon’s Evolutionary Polarities: Allowing for Lateral Reversals

ABSTRACT In this paper we propose that Theodore Millon’s Evolutionary Polarities and their “Reversal between polarities” should be expanded to include lateral reversals, that is, reversals between polarities that are not horizontally opposite to each other. We present the Narcissistic personality as a case and propose that the Narcissistic prototype be revised to include a lateral reversal between the Self-Individuation and the Active-Modification polarities.
