This is intuitively understandable in the case of psychosomatic problems. We can imagine a case of a woman with migraine headaches. She may have a genetic predisposition for suffering from migraines or she may have some hormonal dysfunctions that make her prone to have migraines during menstruation. Or perhaps there is no physical basis at all. For a few years she has been having severe headaches every now and then, but now they are getting worse. In psychotherapy we find out that the headaches have coincided with her husband’s frequent travelling for business reasons.

More than only tendentious apperceptions, these people develop what Adler called ‘a private logic’. We all more or less have a private logic – hidden or unconscious reasons for feeling, thinking, and behaving as we do. But with the neurotic, these reasons may be more hidden, harder to find, and function in a more self-defeating way. Adler’s concept of private logic (or ‘private sense’) also refers to a way of interpreting reality as quite different from the way most people do.
