It is more difficult for a man [masculine person] to be aware of his inner nature because it is the feminine nature—the most tender and sensitive parts of the inner nature—that is wounded. Virtually all of a man's feelings, sense of worth, sense of value, and moods are feminine. To wound the interior feminine in a man is to wound his whole feeling life and sense of worth. Since the feminine part of a man is usually less well developed than his masculinity, this sensitive part of his nature is often ignored and neglected.
