Re: a Hungarian study on a possible aggression modulating gene
Yes, Karen Horney’s works are still in print, and copies sold number in the hundreds of thousands. Yet, no one seemed to have noticed that she presented the essence of the genetic underpinnings of the human personality, in the three NPA traits* (“We must consider at least three subdivisions of the ‘expansive type’: the narcissistic, the perfectionistic and the arrogant-vindictive type.”)
In the article, the authors refer to one of her earlier works (1937).
