Gee, Bruce, that's an awfully broad, vague, and theoretical question --- indeed, it sounds to me exactly like an essay topic set by a psychology lecturer, and I don't write such essays any more ! ( it's one of the VERY few perks of becoming a prof ! )
Ans what you're asking about are not facts, but opinions and theories, within a highly psychoanalytical way of thinking ( a form that has been totally discredited scientifically and has never ever validated itself scientifically ).
Now, if you have a personal problem, which for some reason you believe to be related to a fault in individuation, perhaps you can describe it to me, in a fresh message, and ask a specific question about it ?
