Once the love for self gets transmitted on the transitional item which often, helps with the transferral on the liked item within the outside environment. Easily put, the transitional item will act as a go-between along the way of transfer of omnipotent want to an external item of affection. Nevertheless, if this transmission gets thwarted, the libido gets fixated in the object that is transitional could in turn manifest as a fetish. The interruption of this procedure might make the child determined by the object that is transitional. The item aids the little one to regress to a phase ahead of the interruption and rejection associated with the libido because of the neglecting mother. Therefore, the very last staying vestiges of a unhurt, intact ego are very very carefully guarded because of the fetish item as being a buffer up against the onslaught of all kinds of further injury.
The ‘not me’ occurrence influenced Melanie Klein’s (1955) viewpoint in formulating the Object Relations Theory in which she described the universal instinct driven sensation of projective recognition; pinpointing an item as fulfilling one’s repressed fantasies. The fetish could be the remaining semblance of reality for the kid whom could just grasp it from a paranoid position that is schizoid. This item then facilitates her delving much much much deeper into her world that is own of where her requirements are imagined as actually fulfilled.
