Look up ambivalence in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

Ambivalence is a state of having emotions in contradiction, when those emotions are related to the same object, idea or person (for example, feeling both love and hatred for someone or something). The term is also commonly used to refer to situations where 'mixed feelings' of a more general sort are experienced or where a person feels uncertainty or indecisiveness concerning something. Wikipedia does not have an article with this exact name. ... Wiktionary is a multilingual, Web-based project to create a free content dictionary, available in over 150 languages. ... Emotional redirects here. ... A love-hate relationship is a personal relationship between humans or organizations, or figuratively between a human and an inanimate object, like a computer, a field of study, a body of ideas, or a profession, involving simultaneous or alternating emotions of love and enmity. ...


In psychoanalytic terminology, however, a more refined definition applies: the term (introduced into the discipline by Bleuler in 1911), refers to an underlying emotional attitude in which the co-existing contradictory impulses (usually love and hate) derive from a common source and are thus held to be interdependent. Moreover, when the term is used in this psychoanalytic sense it would not usually be expected that the person embodying this 'ambivalence' would actually feel both of the two contradictory emotions as such: except in obsessional neurosis, which sees both sides being more or less 'balanced' in consciousness, one or other of the conflicting sides is usually repressed. (Thus, for example, an analysand's 'love' for his father might be quite consciously experienced and openly expressed – while his 'hate' for the same object might be heavily repressed and only indirectly expressed, and thus only revealed in analysis). Psychoanalysis is a family of psychological theories and methods based on the work of Sigmund Freud. ... Eugene Bleuler (b. ... 1911 (MCMXI) was a common year starting on Sunday (click on link for calendar). ... A repressed memory, according to some theories of psychology, a memory (often traumatic) of an event or environment which is stored by the unconscious mind but outside the awareness of the conscious mind. ... This page is a candidate to be moved to Wiktionary. ... In philosophy, an object is a thing, an entity, or a being. ...


Another relevant distinction is that whereas the psychoanalytic notion of 'ambivalence' sees it as engendered by all neurotic conflict, a person's everyday 'mixed feelings' may easily be based on a quite realistic assessment of the imperfect nature of the thing being considered. In modern psychology, the term neurosis, also known as psychoneurosis or neurotic disorder, is a general term that refers to any mental imbalance that causes distress, but (unlike a psychosis or personality disorder) does not prevent rational thought or an individuals ability to function in daily life. ... Conflict is a state of opposition, disagreement or incompatibility between two or more people or groups of people, which is sometimes characterized by physical violence. ...


One common saying which entertains the mind is "Me, ambivalent? Well yes and no."

Boston.com / News / Boston Globe / Opinion / Op-ed / Wooing the 'army' of the ambivalent (703 words)
The major political consequences of that sacrifice are a deep US ambivalence about the war's merits, a deeper ambivalence bordering on opposition to the costs of long-term occupation, a deep Iraqi ambivalence about that occupation, and a split between the United States and Europe over the occupation's future.
Attempting to speak on behalf of this army of the ambivalent is by definition difficult, but the essence of this point of view is anything but squishy.
The irony is that after all this, the army of the ambivalent is still in effect available to Bush -- for the simple reason that there is a recognition that Iraq cannot be abandoned.
