I have always advised analysts: “Have a father confessor, or a mother confessor!”
Women are particularly gifted for playing such a part.
They often have excellent intuition and critical insight, and can see what men have up their sleeves, at times see also into men’s anima intrigues.
They see aspects that the man does not see.
That is why no woman has ever been convinced that her husband is a superman. ~.Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams and Reflections
