Is "transference" a medical term the way you use it?
Or is it a process like the process of putting a sheet of carbon paper between two sheets of paper and writing on the top sheet so you can "transfer" the images or printing to the bottom sheet? Like in writing a receipt before carbonless, NCR paper.
You assumed "transference" was a reaction by the posters you have observed, after reading their posts. Yet you don't define what it is. You say transference is caused by anger. So what is it?
Is transference called "shooting the messenger?" Is it(transference)a synonym for the words in quotes? So would it be correct to say that in the time of ancient Athens, messengers were killed because of "transference?" For instance, when a Greek runner arrive there from a far off village and brought them the message (like..." there is a large enemy army coming"), and those Athenians didn't like what he said, and so they killed him. They did so because of transference? Does this make sense to you?
In your rational application of the term transference to those who respond angrily to a physician, did you make sure it corresponds to the definition of transference? In order to objectively evaluate your statement on transference, others need to know what your definition is. I assumed you weren't just making it up.
Under what conditions/circumstances do you operationally define transference as happening?
I would like to know what you think my motive is for asking you what you mean by transference.
