Through our images of what it means to be a person and what we should be as a person we realize our concepts and role-models through reflexive behaviors. If there is integrity in our concepts, role-models and reflexive images of admirable people we become role-models of integrity and demonstrate what it is to be free of tensions of various dichotomies. If we have internalized incoherent concepts, role-models and reflexive images of personhood, then we will experience and broadcast images of dichotomy in our personal and communal lives. If we have the image of a person as a link in a chain, we may regard internal tension in a person as a sign of external conditions. If we have the image of a person as an integrated set of coherent ideals, values, concepts, and images of persons of integrity, then we are likely to regard internal tension as the natural consequences of the internalizations of incoherent elements which are in tension with each other. One image looks to the external world for the resolution of tension; the other image looks to the internal world for the resolution of tension. In the former case the person may be powerless; in the latter case the person is in a position of power to resolve the tension. The difference in image makes quite a difference in practical terms.
