Integration, as opposed to specialism refers to a view of oneself in terms of unique emotional mixes. In this view, a person does not see him or herself as a specific role in society, but as someone with "a tangle of complex emotions and feelings." Such emotions are suppressed in the mindset of specialism, as they are not efficient to achieve practical results.[1] Such a person is "aware of his total interdependence with the rest of society."[2]
