THEMATIC ATTRACTOR 1)5)
A focal point around which we center our life experiences and expectations.
It seems that no human being escapes from such "global organizers" in their life. They could also be called "global behavioral polarizers".
Some examples are: the lust for power in politicians; the lust for money in businessmen; the fascination with some specific aspect of the "unknown" in high level scientific innovators – or, in the past, geographical explorers; the exploration of pictural forms for painters, or musical ones for composers; etc…
Nobody devoid of a powerful thematic attractor is seemingly able to become a leader or creator in his/her field, nor even a significant achiever in life.
