notes from

The Games People Play

Stimulus Hunger
Emotional and sensory stimulation… has the relationship to survival of the human organism as food-hunger.… any social intercourse whatever has a biological advantage over no intercourse at all.

Recognition-Hunger
Stroking as a general term for intimate physical contact… or any act implying recognition of another’s presence. exchange of strokes constitutes a transaction, which is the unit of social intercourse.
— Eric Berne. MD.
