This paper is intended to sensitize analysts to the role of their character in analytic technique. The relation of character to countertransference, its role in analytic style, in the introduction of parameters, and in transference neurosis, will be elaborated. The problem of matching and of accounting for our failures will illustrate the complex meshing of character with more traditional factors.
