The first way this showed itself was in a complete inability to take decisions, which is an evaluative process involving feeling applied to the results of thinking. Overall, the results were disastrous: the patient’s life was saved but his effectiveness as a human being was destroyed. Within nine months he was divorced and had lost his job.
