in the beginning, expectations are normal for a new employee. By excelling, the employee builds goodwill, and immunizes self from criticism and accompanying shame. However, as time goes on, expectations rise until they first reach, and then exceed, the level of the employee's performance. This may be due to demands from multiple sources that are unaware of each other. It may also come about as completed projects add a layer of ongoing, and growing, maintenance. At this point, perceived criticism of the employee's performance occurs. Depending on the employee's potential for shame, which is likely high due to his/her use of this perfectionist defense, this criticism triggers shame, which then results in an avoiding (withdrawal, quitting) or controlling (secondary anger, irritability) defensive response.  Alternatively, the employee may choose effective action, setting boundaries and beginning to address the shame directly, separating it from  performance.

Bipolar II treatment modeling using Van der Pol-like oscillators.

In this simulation an afflicted individual with Bipolar II disorder is put to treatment after 20 months the calibration of the medicine or treatment he recieves is such that it simulates the natural cycles of a "normal being". You can note by manipulating the parameters that sometimes too much treatment disrupts equilibria. Also note that in the state diagrams there are 2 limit cycles, the lower one being the healthiest as there are less changes.

The simple  graph shows two feedback loops that interact to make climate change and its consequences worse, leading to an unexpected (& inescapable?) dilemma. Presently,  there are 413 ppm of CO2 gasses in the atmosphere. Even without any further emission of greenhouse gasses, this high level of CO2 in the atmosphere will ensure constantly worsening climatic consequences because of delays that operate in the climate system. The dilemma is caused by relentlessly worsening of extreme weather events, droughts, forest fires etc., the need for draconian measures to deal with the situation and the opposition to the measures, described by the feedback loop B2.This opposition is rooted in human nature, the psychological defence mechanisms that cause us to repress or even deny unpalatable truths that threaten our basic assumptions and the way we understand life. Together,  the loops B1 & B2 create a vicious reinforcing loop that describes the escalating and worsening situation created by the dilemma.
