Otto Rank in Beyond Psychology
asserts that the psychologies of men and women
are different in that while the psychology of man
merely wants the psychology of woman wants to be wanted.
Now that is in his book originally published in 1939,
( I came to know of him through Ernest Beckerís
Denial of Death).  Does that assertion make sense?

Sounds almost correct. Most woman I know do want to be wanted or needed but not just used.late

I think most humans want and want to be wanted.  

How does he say they are seperated by gender?

Essorant,

He says men merely want,
while women want to be wanted.
He comes to this by observation,
his own and that of others.

I personally have my doubts
since he also says that men
have an initial aversion to sex with women
because of its link to death
which has to be overcome by culture;
that makes no sense to me.
Huan Yi will be notified of replies
