The theory that the subsconcious is simply the unsymbolized suggests the desirability of adequate verbalization at the earliest possible stage of emotional development. It is the nameless fears and frustrations that defy analysis.

The author of this passage would most likely agree that:

a) there is nothing to fear but fear itself
b) emotional development starts at birth
c) verbalization is the key to complete emotional development
d) unsymbolized thoughts and emotions cannot be analyzed
e) the subsconcious initiates only nameless fears and frustrations

Again tricky one. Someone pls help me with ways to solve this kind question...
Anyway, D and E are the candidates. C is the understanding on the theory that the author quoted. Main point is that the subconscious is the nameless fears and frustrations that defy analysis. I don't lilke E because of the word 'only'. I went for D for that. Any other thoughts? Thx.

I am with C, cause verbalization is the earliest stage of emotions and if you don't have verbalization then there won't be a development of emotions....therefore I go with C.

I could not understand a bit of what the statement said. What is the source?

Yes, where DID that come from? I just looked at my bunch of "four star" LSAT inference questions, and every one is far clearer than this one is.

I choose D, but only by process of elimination. A, B and C are clearly outside the scope of the information in the stimulus. As for E, the stimulus states that the subconscious consists of the "unsymbolized", but this does not prove that fears and frustrations are the ONLY things that can be "unsymbolized". So D is the only one left, but I don't see how the stimulus gets us there. I personally consider "unsymbolized" and "nameless" to be synonymous, which gets us there -- but that is an outside assumption, which is not given in the stimulus.

Tough one. I went with C.

A and B are not directly supported by argument.

D is strong with the use of "cannot". Argument only suggests "fears and frustrations that defy analysis". It does not say, analysis cannot be made.

E is again strong with the use of "only".

C
hes suggesting that you want adequate verbalization at the earliest possible stage of development, so i would think he'd be most likely to agree that verbalization is key to development
