When identifying the presence of true contradictory demand, care should be taken to correctly identify the existential intentions of the demanded subject. If the subject has voluntarily requested the demand scenario, no contradiction takes place: the subject’s polarization remains in tact. Here, the subject remains the subject of its own intentions. It is, for example one thing to join the Army knowing one will face a barrage of rules, demands and requirements, and quite another to be submitted to demand involuntarily. When true, unsolicited, unexpected or involuntary demand appears, relational polarization is denied and the relationship rendered impossible to complete.
