Ferrum Mental State


Warlike feeling
Violent, Aggressive
Mars; God of War

Argumentative
Delusion they are at war
Feeling people warring against them
Or Victim Feeling

Way too aggressive


or way too passive
Cant stand any contradiction **
Blows up and gets red in the face
Weepy clingy reaction, just fall apart

See everything as Attack


Doesnt like change from on high

Start a war, tree touching my roof

I expect you to cross the line!


Big Trigger: Teenage years
When your ideas differ from parents

They get despondent or relentless


its like a war at home
They are the wardens and Im the
prisoner

From households:
This is the way it is. Period
Youre going to military school!
An arranged marriage (India)
They feel forced
Bootcamp bad thing for Ferrum
Iron range
Rangers at war with environmentalist
Now mines are not as productive,
rangers think they are loosing
***
Work with their hands
Not intellectual art
A Ferrum architect; build to last

9/11 Go over their and blow the people up who knocked


down the twin towers and then build the buildings back
up even stronger than it was in defiance

Popeye

Perfect Ferrum character,


muscles pop up, but then exhausted

High sensitivity
brittleness, sensitivity to noise,
the environment,
I cant stand the noise!

Psoric (Val)
Could argue: Tubercular
Get excited about something new,
start it and then fizzle out

Weepy, Clinging one


Internally my rights are being violates, but cant muster retaliation so
collapse (causes symptoms)

Im the victim
They are more fearful than aggressive
Greater the depletion,
greater the sensitivity
Mental
A great sensitivity to their will be oppressed, violated or changed
Either really aggressive (forceful, angry)
or really weepy (Clingy, passive)
Strong inner sense of duty
Drive to do what they consider is the right
thing
Worse from contradiction,
ailments from contradiction
Great sensitivity, to environment, to people, to noise (rustling paper)
To anything it doesnt want in its environment

Attractions to the military


Last bastion of knighthood

Gallantry and being looked up to


Love their dress uniforms

Drill sergeant
Get satisfaction from getting people
to conform to their will
Wash the floor with a toothbrush!

Gets worse generation after generation


Parenta do same to children

Desire to be the General

No guns
Reactors
Tantrums etc, regrets it afterwards
(causes symptoms)

Relentless

Im in charge
Will have a gun
Never mind the facts
I know what I know

I want you to learn my way


Make up my own rules
The greater the aggressiveness the great
the guilt and the remorse
They will apologize

Guilt
I feel tired, Im not doing my duty
which leads to guilt
Will get depressed if cant fulfill duty

Knighthood

Ferrum is the individual knight who has his


duties and needs to carry it out
With a flourish, open doors for women
Duty to protect ones family
Bad: if burglar gets in to their house

ideal of nobility
Nostalgia; Dreams of past

Ferrum will eventually get to the top


(Cuprum delusion it is a General)
At the top, then they are enforcing
their will, not directed by someone else

Dreams of old house, old school


Longs for past, when most debilitated

If not at the top: then Im in jail

Civil war reenactments

Dream about war

Dreams of being that football hero again

Depleted (Deception)

Dreams rated with medal of honor


Dreams of heroics (overcome fears)

They look robust, well built, rosy cheeks


But no stamina

They become iron workers

Get excited, and then fizzle out


Rant rave all night, sleep all weekend

Iron on their windows


Need to defend

so sure everyone trying to attack them


Scary dreams about water
Water rusts iron; water on head
Dreams of bunkers, hunker down
Fire; Fear of fire
Dreams saving someone from fire

The enemy beat me down, I have to retrench and


then pick up my sword and go back again
Performance issues
They want to get things right
High standards
Just right according to them
Not Workaholics
Work hard, because they have to rest

Ferrum Mental State


Differential about Duty
Ferrum
Duty: my duty is to do what I think is right, what I
think is right about the remedy, my way
What I want you to learn is very specific
Sulphur
I dont care if you learn, its my philosophy and I
want you to appreciate me
Kali
my duty is to make sure you understand as commonly understood, as required by my job, expected
of me

Expectations
Lach
so obsessed with sex, so sure spouse is cheating
Ferrum:
so sure they have to defend their place so sure
everyone is trying to attack them

At Work, Performance
Like Cuprum
When they do work, they want to get things right
High standards
Unlike Cupr (which follows rules to letter) Ferrum
wants to follow its own rules
Just right according to them

Workaholics
Work hard, but because they have to rest they
dont become work-aholics
Diff from Aurum who will workaholic

Kids
Like to play war (even girls)
Very stubborn
Just shriek or scream if mom says no
Wont give up
The strong kid: resembles Sulphur or Nux

again the next day
