What Do You Say After You Say Hello? By, Eric Berne Book Review by Suresh A M, I semester, MBA, JSSCMS

Eric Berne was a psychoanalyst who became well known in the 1970s for his system of "transactional analysis", the transactions in question being mostly those between a young child and its parents. He proposed various structures for this relationship based on the roles parent/adult/child that every person plays and presents life stories as scripts that can be good or bad. This book is considered by many to be Eric Berne's sequel to Games People Play. Although Berne published other books since Games People Play was released in 1964, most of those works were oriented towards those trained in psychotherapy and not towards the individuals who made Games People Play a two-year bestseller. The book is his last book completed just before his death in 1970. Berne's bad luck was that he wrote the book in 1970 when psychology was going through a bad patch with a flood of bizarre systems appearing. The good gets lost with the bad and transactional analysis now tends to be labeled as an outmoded California fashion related to Freudianism. In the preface he says that the book is "primarily intended as an advanced textbook of psychotherapy, and professionals of different backgrounds should have no difficulty in translating into their own dialects the short and simple annals of transactional analysis. No doubt some non-professionals will read it too, and for that reason I have tried to make it accessible to them. It may demand thinking, but I hope it will not require deciphering." This is a fair statement as it is a book that has to be read in its entirety to work. He uses handy memorable terms for scripts and their elements and the reader can become familiar with rackets, games and trading stamps along with other tools and in the last chapter apply a detailed script check list. He also has a chapter that deals with the objections to his theory in an even-handed way. In What Do You Say After You Say Hello? Berne presents a summary of Transactional Analysis, introducing (or too many, re-introducing) structural analysis, ego states, rituals, pastimes, and

games. Berne then introduces the concept of Scripts to the mainstream world audience for the first time, Berne approaches scripts chronologically. As Berne and his followers began refining Transactional Analysis since its formal introduction in 1958, Berne began developing many new ideas, such as Scripts. This was the first "mainstream" book in which the idea of scripts was introduced. It's good to see that Berne arrives at his system empirically with his basic framework being bolstered with all the evidence he can find. He examines accents, voices, vocabulary, types of laughter, names; in-fact anything he can lay his hands on to provide effective cross checks to his main structural analysis. He shows how parental programming will lay the basis for the script in the "plastic years" of childhood and how adolescent rebellion may lead to an "anti-script." Berne then goes on to analyze the scripts of many familiar fairy tales, such as Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood. With these tools, one is able to break out of a script entirely and change your destiny. Lastly, Berne presents objectively and fairly some objections and criticisms to script theory. It nicely ties together his main discoveries and provides a fascinating selection of "scripts" tracing them from their source and presenting them in his very effective parent/adult/child format. The system can be presented diagrammatically and one needs to use it to get the most out of the book. However, once over this hurdle the system is very useful and effective. Berne introduces reader to transactional analysis with an introduction of what do one say after saying hello and terming it to be a childish rather fundamental problems of social sciences. He then says how hello is said to unknown people giving examples from his practice as a psychiatrist how is helloed his patients before and after knowing them. He goes on writing about the principles of transactional analysis stating that the basic interest of transactional analysis is the study of eco states which are coherent systems of taught and feeling manifested by corresponding patterns of behavior each human being exhibits three types of ego states – parent, adult, and child. The separation of one feeling – and – behavior pattern from another in diagnosing ego states is called Structural Analysis. It is evident that when two people confront each other, there are 6 ego states involved, 3 in each person. Transactional analysis is a theory of personality and social action and a clinical method of

psychotherapy, based on the analysis of all possible transactions between two or more people, on the basis of specifically defined ego states into a finite number of established types. It is also possible to classify long series of transactions, extending even to a whole life time, so that significant human social behavior, both short and long term, can be predicted. The need to structure time is based on 3 drives or hungers – stimulus or sensation hunger, recognition hunger and structure hunger. Time structuring avoids boredom and at the same time helps to get the greatest possible satisfaction out of each situation. Each person, in addition, has a preconscious life plan, or script by which he structures longer periods of time filling them with ritual activities, pastimes, and games which further the script while giving him immediate satisfaction, usually interrupted by periods of withdrawal and sometimes by episodes of intimacy. Scripts are usually based on child like illusions which may persist throughout a whole life time. Time structuring is an objective term for the existential problem of what to do after saying Hello. Berne writes about prenatal influences that in man too, the genes determine chemically some of the patterns he must follow and from which he cannot deviate. They also set the upper limit for his individual aspirations. But within his chemical limitations, whatever they are, each man has enormous possibilities for determining his own fate. Usually, however, his parents decide it for him long before he can see what they are doing. It is known that almost every kind of living organism can be trained. Training requires an outside stimulus to start off a certain pattern of behavior. Human beings behavior pattern are determined by rigid reflex genes, primitive imprinting, infant play and imitation, parental training, social taming and spontaneous invention. Scripts involve all of these, he carries out his script because it is planted in his head at an early age by his parents, and stays there for the rest of his life. On ancestral influences he goes on to write that scripts can be traced back in a clinical interview to the great grandparents, and if the family has a recorded history, as is often common in the case with kings and their courtiers, it may go back a thousand years in time. It is common knowledge, even proverbial how much grandparents, alive or dead, influence the lives of their grand – children. He says the most regarded question to ask on ancestral influences is “what

kind of lies did your grand-parents lead?” and gives that it is most of the times answered in 4 types of reports: 1. Ancestral Pride 2. Idealization 3. Rivalry 4. Personal Experiences. Berne starts his next chapter on the influence of the plastic years, when the human is of age 6 and is leaving the kindergarten and is entering the competitive world of the first grade. Here on he will be dealing on his own with his teachers and other boys and girls. From the little suburb of his home, he ventures into the great metropolis of the bustling school with whole sets of social responses ready to offer the various kinds of people around him. His mind is all wired up with his own ways of getting along, or at least of surviving, and his life plan has already been made. A good kindergarten teacher can even predict what outcome will be, and what kind of life the child will be, and what kind of life the child will have: happy or unhappy, winning or losing. The comedy or tragedy of each human life is that it is planned by an urchin of pre-school age, who has a very limited knowledge of the world and its ways, and whose heart is filled mainly with stuff put there by his parents. He has no way to tell the facts from the delusions, and the most everyday events are distorted. He is told that if he has sex before marriage he will be punished and that after marriage sex will go unpunished. As a thinking Martian, when parents interfere with or try to influence their children’s free expression, their directives are interpreted differently by the parents, the onlookers and the child himself and Berne points out 5 types of viewpoints: 1. What the parents says he meant 2. What the naïve onlooker thinks he meant 3. The literal meaning of what was said 4. What the parents ‘really’ meant 5. What child gets out of it.

On how a script works and in dealing with it in treatment Berne lists that the apparatus consists of seven items. The payoffs or curs, the injunction or stopper, and the provocation and comeon, together control the unfolding of the script towards its destiny, and hence he terms them as script controls. These are all programmed in before the age of six in most cases. So is the antiscript or spellbreaker, if there is one. Later, the counterscript slogans or prescription, and the parental behavior patterns and instructions, begin to take firmer hold. The script apparatus of a loser consists on one hand of injunctions, provocations, and a curse. These are script controls, and are firmly implanted by age of 6. To combat he says, the child has an inner demon, and is sometimes supplied with an internal release. Later he comes to understand slogans, which give him a counter script. Throughout, he is learning behavior patterns; both serve the script and the counter-script. A winner has same apparatus, but the programming is more adaptive, and he usually has more autonomy because he as more permission. But in all human beings the demon persists, to bring sudden pleasure or grief. Berne next shows how the later childhood influences his behavior. The latent period between the age of 6 and 10, he terms as the ‘locomotor’ phase where the child locomotes around neighborhood to see what he can see. He is now ready to turn from animals who eat people or who act like people, to people themselves. During this period the child makes definite decisions about what kind of feeling will work for him. He as previously experimented with this, feeling by turns angry, hurt, guilty, scared, inadequate, righteous and triumphant, and has discovered the certain of these are treated with indifference or outright disapproval by his family, while one of them is acceptable and gets results. That is the one that becomes his racket. The favored feeling becomes a sort of conditioned reflex which may persist for the rest of his life. Psychological trading stamps are the currency of transactional ‘rackets’. When young parents teach him how to feel when things get difficult: most commonly, angry, hurt, guilty, scared or inadequate; but sometimes stupid, baffled, surprised righteous, or triumphant. These feelings become rackets when child learns to exploit them and play games in order to collect as many as possible of his favorite, partly because in the course of time this favorite felling is substituted by other rackets. Berne then explains the effect of illusions, games, persona and family culture in developing the scripts in the behavior of the child.

Berne proceeds to the adolescence the next phase of a child nature means high school and college, driver’s license, bar-mitzvah, initiation, having your own thing and your own things. The time when parents and teachers no longer structure the child’s time completely he explains the ways the time structure guides for the future. The favorite pastime, new heroes, totem, new feelings, physical reactions, front room and the back room, script and anti-script, and the world image. The next topic he speaks about is the maturity and death, throwing light about maturity, mortgage, addictions, drama triangle, life expectancy, old age, death scene and a few other instances. He speaks about the script in action; highlighting about the types of scripts which involves winners, non winners and losers, script time, sex and scripts, clock time and goal time. He explains with some typical scripts and highlights about Cinderella. Analyzing the birth and life of Cinderella, and comparing fairy tales and real people. Speaking about the script signs, he explains about the script signal, the physiological component, how to listen, basic vocal signals, choice of words, gallows transaction, types of laughter, types of protest and the script switches. Berne takes case histories Clooney, Victor, Jan & Bill to support the script in clinical practices. He concludes with the scientific approaches to script theory, stating the objections to the theory of script and the methodological problems and summarizes with the script check list, which involves the definition of a script, how to verify a script, introduction to the script check list, a script check list, a condensed check list and a therapy check list.

What Would You Do

...What Would You Do? Scenario 1- Della the Delinquent Cat Lady As the president of the board of directors of the cat shelter, I am faced with rather or not Ms. Della should remain as part of the staff at the cat shelter. There are several problems that have been brought to my attention and I feel that now is the time to figure out exactly what should be done regarding the matter. After, evaluating the situation and giving it a great deal of consideration, I have come up several solutions to the problem. One of the easier solutions would be to just let Della go. I have considered retraining Della as manager of the cat shelter, or having a sit down with Ms. Della and asking her how she thinks she is performing as manager. Also, I think that asking Ms. Della to step down as the manager and giving her a position that she can handle. Although, these may seem like the best solution to resolve the situation, I have to look at the pros and cons of any decision that I make. If I decide to let Della go, it might benefit the company in the sense that we can find someone that is really dedicated and committed to for fulfilling their position. On the hand, Della is already going through a tough time, and firing her will not only affect her, but affect her children as well whom she is trying to provide for. Retraining Della could really help her gain a better understanding as what is expected from her as a manger, and she could gain more knowledge that may help her excel as a......

...Emma Finney November 9, 2012 Mrs. Likin English 095 Summary: Today we watched video clips from ABC’s show “What would you do?” one of situations in the video was a woman with OCD with a condition of germ phobia. She had dropped her groceries on the floor and could not purchase them for she felt they were “dirty”. The cashier was playing a roll of a not so very understanding person. He kept implying that they were not dirty and that the food was fine, one customer in line tried to explain to that OCD is Obsession Compulsive Disorder and that once something isn’t right they mentally cannot handle it. In the second situation there was a man in a liquor store with his son purchasing alcohol for a party that his son was going to have. You could tell that the son was very uncomfortable with the whole thing and that the father was pressuring him. A bunch of people disagreed with the actions the father was taking. In the final scenario a woman was breast feeding her child that was at the age of four in a coffee shop. One of the actors was playing the role as a disgusted costumer in the coffee shop and was making a big scene asking the woman to do that elsewhere. A lot of customer didn’t seem to have an issue with the woman breast feeding her child in the open public. Critique: All the scenarios had good points to them, if I was the person in line at the grocery store I would have done the same thing that the woman had done while she was in line.

‘the Tone Says Life Is Fun. the Undertone Suggests Life Is a Catastrophe’. to What Extent Do You Think Eric Bentley’s Comment About the Dramatic Genre of Comedy Is Relevant to Oscar Wilde’s the Importance of Being Earnest?

...‘The tone says life is fun. The undertone suggests life is a catastrophe’. To what extent do you think Eric Bentley’s comment about the dramatic genre of comedy is relevant to Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest? The philosopher and literary critic Sigmund Freud agreed with Bentley’s statement on the dramatic genre of comedy, agreeing that ‘every joke contains an element of seriousness; a joke is never just a joke’. Wilde uses many aspects of comedy to back this opinion. The character of Lady Bracknell was created as a comic tool by Wilde to generate fun for the audience; her dialogue is essentially a way of creating humour, despite her domineering nature which is made absurd and ridiculous to mock the upper classes. This creates a light hearted tone. However, Wilde also uses the character of Lady Bracknell to express the undertone of catastrophe through her unwittingly funny comments on serious subjects. As soon as Lady Bracknell enters in Act one Wilde uses her as a tool to mock marriage. She talks about Lady Harbury who has recently lost her husband and, Lady Bracknell comments, ‘she looks quite twenty years younger’. Lady Harbury looking well is certainly due to the restraints of her strict Victorian marriage being broken, so she can now live ‘for pleasure’. In the 21st century if your husband died you would mourn his death, because modern marriages are mainly for love, not to gain status and money. This is part of the tone which Wilde has set of......

Suze Says She Lives by Her Credo, “People First, Then Money, Then Things.” What Do You Think She Means by That? What Does That Mean to You? Please Explain Your Answer.

...Suze says she lives by her credo, “People first, then money, then things.” What do you think she means by that? What does that mean to you? Please explain your answer. "People First, Then Money, Then Things," clarifies that when Suze says "People First," she means taking care of you first, not taking care of everybody else, as some people misinterpret it. You need to take care of yourself first. "People first" does not refer to your parents, your siblings, your children, your grandparents, your aunt, your uncle, your friends, your co-worker. You need to have food in your house to feed yourself, you need to have clothes in the closet to clothe yourself, and you need a roof over your head so you can sleep in a dry and safe home. I believe she's not referring to keeping stacks of money hidden in your mattress. Every person should be debt free, including a mortgage. Suze is just saying have an emergency fund, be prepared. That brings me to "then things." This means that once you have taken care of yourself first and you have all of the appropriate items in place financially speaking, then you can worry about things, like vacations, redecorating your bathroom, buying an expensive handbag, etc. I agree with this statement from Suze and it’s hard to understand and have a clear thought of what she’s trying to tell you. I believe I correctly got the point and think I understood her concept to the best of my abilities....

Book Review on How Will You Measure You Life?

...HOW WILL YOU MEASURE YOUR LIFE? By; Clayton Christensen The question the title approaches is amusing itself because it is an actual question that people ask too many of times. Only because it is human to be soul searching, to find purpose and to know the where, how, what, why and when. In this case the question is ‘how’ and Clayton Christensen along with the assistance of James Allworth and Karen Dillon does an amazing job in answering the question with theories and ideas that not only can work but applies so well to the individual that it is quite inspiring. Everything this book I believe centers on finding happiness and finding happiness is a pursuit that each individual yearns for. However, the definition of happiness can be different with each individual and sometimes there needs to be a specific definition for the term. Christensen applies the importance of paying attention to the smaller things. Something that he pointed out was his assistance in helping Andy Grove who had inquiries of him and wanted to know what he can do within his business to be successful. The author teaches the difference between telling someone what to think and teaching that someone how to think. This is exactly what he did with Grove by teaching him principles that was applicable to him through showing him the way and how to get there and at the end, launched the Celeron processor and made a great difference in the world of computers. It is sad to think of how many of his classmates......

Who Are You to Say There Is No God?

...21, 2013 Argument Essay Who are we to say there is no God? Werner Heisenberg once said "The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you." Even a man whose life focus was science and explaining how things worked believed in a Power greater than himself. Heisenberg was a genius and his theories couldn't explain away God. Although some say that the wonders of mother nature can be explained by scientific facts I believe the presence of God is all around us. Atheists argue that suffering and war come from religion but God is loving and all-inclusive; it is people in the religions that cause the suffering not God. Even though Austin Cline believes there are too many religions and different God's to go with them all (page 71) ; I believe the other gods are pleasing to mans desire. A true God would be contrary to flesh and be on a much holier level thus proving man made to please themselves. These man made gods are made of wood stone and iron made by mans hands. God has never had a graven image or a name like they do. "There Is No God" by Sam Harris gives the example of hurricane Katrina as proof there is no God (page 72). Harris uses the point that if there is a God "what was he doing while a hurricane wasted their city?" For one thing, such events shake our confidence in this life and force us to think about eternity. Churches are usually filled after disasters as people realize how......

What Does It Mean to Say That Romantic Love Is a Moral Issue Do You Agree

...obligatory (Halwani 2010, p.89). We should eschew wrong actions, however, can we summarise romantic love is morally prohibited? Sometimes love hurts people when love is selfish or attachment; while sometimes love also brings happiness and support from outside of us. Romantic love is beyond dualism, just like Halwani (2010, p.92) states ' romantic love is not a basic good...it is not morally suspect either.' Then, how romantic love connects with right actions? If romantic love is our obligation, morality is uncorrelated. Whereas if romantic love is permissible that people can choose may or may not to undertake it, morality would intervene in decision making. 'Romantic love is not under our command, which means it is not something we are able to do at will' (Halwani2010, p.90). Romantic love is accidental; people just can not control the time, the place and the person that they will fall in love with. As a result, we can conclude that romantic love is not obligatory. Therefore, romantic love is neither obligatory nor prohibited; the only probability of romantic love is to be permissible. This appears a question about whether people should undertake it in their lives. To answer the question, this essay is going to focus on discussing preferential treatment and three main ethical theories. 'At the most primitive and human level, love begins with the sensual, attractive, and beautiful dimensions'(Morelli 2007), and then love is going to evolve into bestowal. As a result,......

Mary Lyn Miller, veteran career consultant and founder of the Life and Career Clinic, says that when most people are unhappy about their work, their first thought is to get a different job. Instead, Miller suggests looking at the possibility of a different life. Through her book, "8 Myths of Making a Living," as well as workshops, seminars and personal coaching and consulting, she has helped thousand of dissatisfied workers re-assess life and work. Like the way of Zen, which includes understanding of oneself as one really is, Miller encourages job seekers and those dissatisfied with work or life to examine their beliefs about work and recognize that, "in many cases your beliefs are what brought you to where you are today." You may have been raised to think that women were best at nurturing and caring and, therefore, should be teachers and nurses. So that's what you did. Or, perhaps you were brought up to believe that you should do what your father did, so you have taken over the family business, or become a dentist "just like dad." If this sounds familiar, it's probably time to look at the new possibilities for your future.

Can You Say What Your Strategy Is?

...Can You Say What Your Strategy Is? by David J. Collis and Michael G. Rukstad It’s a dirty little secret: Most executives cannot articulate the objective, scope, and advantage of their business in a simple statement. If they can’t, neither can anyone else. Can you summarize your company’s strategy in 35 words or less? If so, would your colleagues put it the same way? It is our experience that very few executives can honestly answer these simple questions in the affirmative. And the companies that those executives work for are often the most successful in their industry. One is Edward Jones, a St. Louis–based brokerage firm with which one of us has been involved for more than 10 years. The fourth-largest brokerage in the United States, Jones has quadrupled its market share during the past two decades, has consistently outperformed its rivals in terms of ROI through bull and bear markets, and has been a fixture on Fortune’s list of the top companies to work for. It’s a safe bet that just about every one of its 37,000 employees could express the company’s succinct strategy statement: Jones aims to “grow to 17,000 financial advisers by 2012 [from about 10,000 today] by offering trusted and convenient face-to-face financial advice to conservative individual investors who delegate their financial decisions, through a national network of onefinancial-adviser offices.” Conversely, companies that don’t have a simple and clear statement of strategy are likely to......

No matter how secure a system is someone is always ahead of the game finding ways to slip through the cracks. According to Alan Paller, “there are at least 100 countries actively doing cyber-espionage (M, 2010).” In the healthcare environment you have many people accessing and using the intranet system. The IT department has the job of monitoring and blocking excess from internet sites without security clearance or certificates out of date. Unknown to the IT department is that the staff can be trying to access these sites which are not allowed. This would put the healthcare organization at risk of scripts slipping in (M, 2010). these scripts are security breaches which are used to steal patient’s personal information. Anti-virus software programs are not looking for these scripts they are looking for files. These scripts can come from social media networks which staff may be accessing. According to Dave Meilek, “most of today’s threats are blended attacks propagated on legitimate sites like Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, and many others.” (M, 2010) Attacks can come through emails which have suspicious scripts attached that help them get into the system finding the crack in the network and software.
