Men are often stereotyped, misunderstood, judged, and as a result inappropriately generalized into specific projected categories which oftentimes have nothing to do with their authentic self. As a result, from the time the little boy comes into our world, he is greeted by an array of expectations, obligations, social roles, etc., which also oftentimes knock him off the track of who he actually is and what path he truly wants to take in life. Because men, as little boys, throughout the ages have been raised to perform and to essentially not express or verbalize emotion or feelings, their thoughts have gone unheard. Thus the evolution of “Unspoken Language,” a story if you will (with specific academic descriptions) of the social, psychological, as well as anthropological history of male behavior, personality and expression of emotion. The essence of the book is based on the Jungian archetype theory of how men are governed by ancient predispositions toward behavior and subsequently how it impacts their lives and interpersonal relationships. It is my hope the”Unspoken Language” will open up a new paradigm of both understanding why men behave as they do, as well as encourage men to explore ways to discover their own hidden language, and to enhance their well-being and that of individuals who they journey through this life with.
