|Ml-||Concern / Handling||SiFe||Malan|

From M, L and -an (introversion suffix). A personified name for Ml-, when manifested as a character in the psyche. While Ml- refers specifically to a mode of information computation, Malan refers to the ego-complex that emerges from that computation as it unfolds across the whole psyche. The hinge commitments of Ml- comprised the core tenants of the complex, but this may expand to include other psychic material which is complementary to those commitments.
Malan is a natural and inevitable emergence from Ml- operating in the psyche across time, giving rise to the seat of personality. For the Ml- type, this is the character that the psyche plays most regularly. It is synonymous with lived experience, as all of a Ml-‘s actions follow from its epistemological premise. Thus, this core complex cannot be destroyed any more than the ego can be permanently eliminated from the psyche. However, Malan can come under the attack of other internal or external psychic components which may threaten the sanctity of this ego complex.
