Peer-Impact Diagnosis and Therapy

This chapter explores seven primary categories encompassing thirteen different types of defensive glitches, each with the potential to be fairly benign or extremely serious: False Facade, Kid Copier, Premature Departure (Time-Out, Extended, Forever), Early Commitment (Career, Romantic), Veiled (Person-Dedicated, Mission-Dedicated), Loner (Isolated Game-Player, Parallel Feel-Good Loner), and Pre-Glitch. Individuals with False Facade glitch avoid adolescence and assume a mature face, a False Facade. Adolescents with a False Facade glitch are accustomed to frequent praise and overvaluation and little objective appraisal. This chapter discusses some of the differences between False Facades and Kid Copiers before explaining each of the remaining five categories of defensive glitches.
