Carl Jung on human frailty and public speaking fears

Carl Jung, the analytical psychologist, noted that human beings display the characteristics of archetypal figures, especially heroes of Ancient Greece.

The warrior hero Achilles is one such figure. Achilles was be invulnerable to his enemies except for one part of his anatomy: his "Achilles heel."

Except for this tendon, he was invulnerable and impervious to the attacks of his enemies.

Achilles resembles the 20th-century comic-book character Superman, the caped superhero who is all-powerful except in the presence of Kryptonite, rocks from his home planet Krypton.

Each of us has an Achilles heel or fears Kryptonite. It is our zone of vulnerability.

According to Jung, we assume our enemies--our listeners--are aware of our secret weakness. They know we are vulnerable and hence we feel fear.
