Evans, P. (2003).  Controlling People: How to Recognize, Understand, and Deal with People Who Try to Control You.
"When people unwittingly form their identity out of one imposed on them by others, how they appear to others becomes an all-important barometer by which to validate their existence. In a backwards construction of self, there is no three-dimensionality, no depth, no space for future evolution and integration with the world. Human empathy, warmth, allowance for error—all that is considered to be humanity itself—may find no niche, no accommodation." (p. 54)
Beebe, J. (1992).  Integrity in Depth. Carolyn and Ernest Fay Series in Analytical Psychology.
"The acceptance by the self of its own failures to achieve its ideals is the only way that it can earn the empathy required for a human attitude toward the shadow. When the shadow appears to act out what has been morally repressed, it is as if another self emerges, out of relation to the ideals in which we normally center our identity. That self does things we know are wrong and yet for which we must assume responsibility, creating the anxiety we know as guilt." (p. 65)
Bridges, W. (1994).  Jobshift.
Buckingham, M., & Clifton D. O. (2001).  Now, Discover Your Strengths.
"Unsure of who we really are, we define ourselves by the knowledge we have acquired or the achievements we have racked up along the say. By defining ourselves in this way we become reluctant to change careers or learn new ways of doing things because then, in the new career, we would be forced to jettison our precious haul of expertise and achievement. We would have to jettison our identity." (p. 144)
Duffy, M., & Sperry L. (2013).  Overcoming Mobbing: A Recovery Guide for Workplace Aggression and Bullying.
"For better or for worse, job, career, and personal identity are tightly interconnected and a rupture in one causes ruptures in the others."
Goffman, E. (1986).  Stigma: Notes on the Management of Spoiled Identity.
"That which can be told about an individual's social identity at all times during his daily round and by all persons he encounters therein will be of great importance to him. The consequence of a presentation that is perforce made to the public at large may be small in particular contacts, but in every contact there will be some consequences, which, when taken together, can be immense. Further, routinely available information about him is the base from which he must begin when deciding what tack to take in regard to whatever stigma he possesses. Thus, any change in the way the individual must always and everywhere present himself will for these very reasons be fateful—this presumably providing the Greeks with the idea of stigma in the first place." (p. 48)
