In early childhood the failure to find another being behaving contingently with one’s internal states, and available for the intersubjective processes detailed above that permit the creation of the representational self, can create a desperation for meaning as the self seeks to find itself, its mirror image, in the other. The desperation leads to a distortion of the intersubjective process and leads the individual to take in non-contingent reflections from the object. Unfortunately, as these images do not map onto anything within the child’s own experience, they cannot function as totally effective representations of the self.
