I am sure, you must have met these types of people who are over-caring, and over-considerate for their loved ones and their own things. These people are conscious of others’ needs and try to keep every concerned person happy. The negative Chicory state produces a need to control, to be the focus of attention, and to be continuously assured of the family’s love.
They try to continually correct the things which according to them are wrong and they enjoy doing this. And they try for their near ones to be close to them. But the problem arises when they do not get the same in return which leads to their change in behavior which affects them and even others.
These people are over passionate to fulfill the need of others. They are full of love and care for their loved ones. Everything goes on smoothly and merrily but the problem arises when their concerned persons fail to show the same concern towards them. If they do not get attention, they create some drama or such situations to attract others’ attention towards them. They may start portraying themselves as helpless as if they are stuck in a horrendous situation.
These people actually expect from others. They do often get depressed and hurt if the love, attention, and care of others are not showered on them. And the result of this hurt is that they start taunting anyone around them. They may also start to make the other person realize what efforts they have put to do things for the benefit of others.
The Chicory mother insists that her children spend every holiday with her and makes their lives miserable if they don’t comply. She uses heavy doses of guilt to attain her objectives – making dealing with her an emotional drain on the entire family. In adults, as in children, frequent illness may be used as a way to gain both sympathy and attention.
These people rarely do something unconditionally for others. When they do something even for their loved ones like family members or relatives, it can not be stated as unconditional, since they expect them to do the same in return. And if these people get frustrated, the whole family has to suffer. As the family members also share the bond with the sufferer they will also feel bad for the person and his actions surely going to affect them.
You have to think before sharing something with these kinds of people. Since they are good at understanding the feeling of others, they will try to relate the same feeling that they have or had and will start narrating their own problems to try to grab the attention of companions without trying to devise a remedy for the situation in which the person is. And also your emotions and feelings if you shared with them, may actually be used against you when the time comes by these Chicory people when feel they are not winning an argument.
