Source: Self-Love/Fee Images from Pixabay How Treatable Are Narcissists? The age-old problem with diagnosing mental disorders is that once you pin someone with a label, you tend to “fix” that person in time and space. Labels are typically both reductive and absolutist.

To make matters more complicated still, there are instances where a person’s psychopathology is irremediable—say, in a hard-core sociopath, or one with severe autism or organic brain damage.

A mirror through which we could safely explore the changing and expanding roles of men and women in our culture, they also became a vehicle through which we could catch glimmers of the future. Most importantly, they've helped us learn about the challenge and value of balancing yin and yang in an ever-changing world. Piggy and Kermit broke the stereotypes of their time (the '70s and '80s) and surprised us with a female character taking on more of the yang—the fierce, discriminating, "masculine" energy (Hi-ya!)—and the male character taking on more of the yin—the warm, receptive, and inviting "feminine" energy. They reflected and anticipated the changes of the times, with the female character taking on the independent, take-charge, and empowered gumption of coming into the spotlight, while the male character took on the sensitive and … [Read more...] about What Kermit and Piggy Taught Us About Yin and Yang
