The individual can need to shine, to sparkle, to stand out. A need for there to be clear lines to define them (black and white like PLATINA).

They are cold people (diamonds are often called ice). In the clinic you may see the little girl or boy, lost in the world or shattered by their past (Happy birthday Mr. President). They may be tormented by “sharpness” be that sharp cutting remarks that cannot be forgotten, or sharp pains almost anywhere, or their sharp intellect. They may be presenting with the loss of this sharpness.

These habits preceded the current job but have become embedded in their company. They must shine, the company may lack structure or be rigidly structured, everything is clear or cloudy, the extremes. This is more than the ego at work, their whole self is embroidered into the project. There is an anger brewing underneath that can come out in sharp bursts. Some of this may be seen in NUX VOM but there the ambition is to succeed and move on, they are not the company.
If there is sexual abuse in the history it is often a product of, rather than the cause of, the addiction.
