This makes it problematic for compulsive objectivists who are preoccupied with objectivity to be open and honest about their own conceptions of success, respond, honor, achievements, and self esteem. According to objectivists' highly specialized and exclusive paradigm all considerations should be objective; none should be reflexive. To be open and honest about their conceptions of success, respect and achievement---is to be reflexive, and so is taboo. Thus objectivists are prone to pretend that their considerations of success, respect, honor, achievements and signs of completion and/or perfection are objective in nature. Engaging in such pretense leads objectivists into collusive games of mutual self deception, and into organizational addiction according to systematic procedures which are covertly passed from generation to generation, because the procedures are dishonest and lack integrity; and so they undermine personal and communal integrity. Such disintegrative behavior cannot be engaged in overtly, openly, honestly and publicly---and elicit respect and signs of honor. Thus such disintegrative behaviors are engaged in covertly and tacitly. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
