Gilbert, P. (1992).  Depression: the evolution of powerlessness.
"There is, therefore, an archetypal fear of outsiders and also of being made an outsider. Many films and other forms of art reflect this basic fear. Furthermore, group membership is an important aspect of self-esteem and self-identity (see Abrams et al., 1990, and Chapter 7 this volume). Another interesting observation is that following loss of rank an animal (e.g., in gorillas) may take up a solitary life. Once someone has involuntarily fallen in rank (been deposed) they can be ejected from groups quite quickly. Group living, therefore, runs parallel with the need to feel part of a group, supported by a group, and hence free from potential persecution. Lone primates often find it difficult to be accepted in a group unless they can make some bid for dominance or attract allies. In humans also non-acceptance can elicit aggression, but submission/ withdrawal/ avoidance is probably more common." (p. 181)
Auw, A. (1999).  The Gift of Wounding: Finding Hope and Heart in Challenging Circumstances.
"These examples illustrate a truth we all too often forget. Miracles of healing are not limited to the body, but touch the soul and renew the spirit of a person. We feel the love that heals and brings us to new life when we experience love by someone who: accepts us unconditionally; walks with us when our pace is slow; inspires us when we are disheartened; and supports and encourages us with affection and laughter. It is a love that sees our weakness and even our ugliness and accepts us 'as is,' looking beyond those qualities to the inner heart and soul, and gracing these with understanding and compassion." (p. 123)
McGraw, P. C. (2000).  Life Strategies : Doing What Works, Doing What Matters.
"Remember, I said earlier the number-one need in all people is acceptance. The number-one fear in all people is rejection." (p. 100)
Hennig, M., & Jardim A. (1977).  The managerial woman.
"It is healthy and natural for all persons, men and women, to live directly in both the instrumental and the affective worlds. The best example we can give to explain what we are talking about is to quote the man who said, 'My boss is the best boss I've ever had. When you go in there and she criticizes your work she makes sure you leave feeling you are a good and valuable person who wrote a bad report.'"
