An everyday example of a deprivation-produced type of experience is the feeling of (supposed) time deprivation. People caught up with this always seem to be in a hurry. They have to beat the clock, and however much time they have to do a job it is never enough. Such people have, in reality, as much time as anyone else to do what is necessary. But they feel basically insecure about what is expected of them and cannot feel freedom or voice this painful anxiety. Their subconscious mind produces a semi-comforting excuse for them: they are being deprived of time; it is not fair. And this is why, they point out, they are performing so badly. Of course, with all the rush they become tense and the very feeling of tension adds to their anxiety.
