Author: Kets de Vries, Manfred F. R. INSEAD Area: Organisational BehaviourIn: Human Relations, vol. 42, no. 12, 1989 Language: EnglishDescription: p. 1079-1093.Type of document: INSEAD ArticleNote: Please ask the Library for this articleAbstract: In this article the organization man is looked at from a different perspective within the context of a relatively recent clinical construct called alexithymia. Alexithymia meaning literally no words for moods -is basically a communication disorder. The construct has been introduced in psychiatry and medical psychology because of a consistent body of clinical and phenomenological observations relating to a particular way of interacting emotionally. More specifically, it refers to individuals with an extreme reality-based cognitive style, an impoverished fantasy life, a paucity of inner emotional experiences, a tendency to engage in stereotypical interpersonal behaviour and a speech pattern characterized by endless, trivial, repetitive details. As a clinical syndrome, integrating and telescoping co-variant characteristics, it alerts the clinician to a cluster of otherwise most likely unobserved but frequently related cognitive, and affective patterns..
