Bad behaviour gets a negative or no response. With this, however, comes the possibility of both moving the child away from its own nature, with the creation of a ‘false self’, as well as the possibility of exclusion of certain experiences from intersubjective sharing. Regarding the latter, and to quote Stern: Whatever happens next, whether the experience excluded from the interpersonal sphere becomes part of the ‘false-self’ or ‘not me’ phenomenon, whether it is simply relegated out of consciousness, one way or another, or whether it remains a private but accessible part of the self, the beginning [of failure to integrate one’s whole nature] lies here.

Self Psychology sees every human being as having the same propensity for selfhood, although with widely differing skills and talents. The path the development of the self takes depends both on the vicissitudes of selfobject experience and the part that individual capacities play. Significant deficiencies in selfobject experience produce distortions of the natural development of the self. Minor deficiencies, on the other hand, promote development. Kohut came to recognize the importance of selfobject failure as a result of experience in clinical work.

And, as a final feature of this complex process of self-creation by idealization, and making best use of what was available to him, Shaw probably used his mother as a model as well as a fantasied supporting presence. If he could not be a person to attract her attention, he could at least become the sort of person she was, as Holroyd puts it, ‘insensible to public opinion and a Bohemian without Bohemian vices’. These two men provide very clear representations of the differences between mirroring and idealizing selfobjects, and they clearly show how the former are relationship-bound and the latter relationship-independent.
