Title
A Personality Sketch of Cain, the Son of Adam
Abstract

A brief personality sketch of the biblical character, Cain, is discussed in light of Karen Horney'€™s description of neurotic functioning. The author proposes that Cain corresponds to the "€œmoving against,"€ expansive neurotic type of Horney'€™s three directional model. It is also hypothesized that Cain chose this mode of functioning as a means of solving his own interpersonal difficulties and as an attempt to satisfy the needs of his idealized self-image.
