if the dreamer feels admiration for the façade of a personality, he will then become a toy on the world stage in the endless pantheon of masks; yet if he feels admiration for true individuality or even for an outstanding inner model, then he is headed toward final realization (see the Persona archetype and Individuality archetype).
the dreamer's attempt to be admired by others: a target of satire and ridicule from the unconscious since similar efforts only intensify the ego to the detriment of the dreamer's true individuality.
for sports achievements: does not have in the unconscious a more substantial meaning and is only a means for achieving the goals of one's personality and strengthening the ego (see Treasure archetype); shifts the dreamer to the instinctual level, since the rhythm of sports has a clear relationship to sexuality.
for art: a path toward an expression of the inner content of one's psyche; a path toward a fuller emotional and later even spiritual life.
rejecting the admiration of others or being impassive to it: one possible way of freeing oneself from the yoke of the ego.
