“What is a good personal myth? Over the course of adolescence through middle adulthood, our personal myths ideally develop in the direction of increasing (1) coherence, (2) openness, (3) credibility, (4) differentiation, (5) reconciliation, and (6) generative integration.  the prototype of the ‘good story’ in human identity is one that receives high marks on these six narrative standards.”-Dan McAdams, The Stories We Live By.

“Finally, in the self-absolutory strategy, a negative past is seen to have produced a negative present.  In these kinds of accounts, the person often suggests that he or she is ‘paying the price’ for past mistakes.  Other accounts support the idea support the idea that serious disadvantages are rarely transcended over time.  Poverty leads to more poverty.  Childhood unhappiness breeds adult misery.  The person may suggest that he or she ‘never had a chance’ that ‘the cards were stacked against me’ from the first day onward.  Thus life is made sensible, but the story is a tragic one.”-Dan McAdams, The Stories We Live By.

“I was troubled, as I still am, by the tragic quality of the compensatory strategy, the sense of regret and missed opportunities.  Yet such a strategy may still provide life with meaning and purpose.  And it can even prove a source of inspiration in life, as when a person who believes that he or she has lost a positive past seeks in some constructive way to recapture or reconstruct certain elements of that past in the future.”-Dan McAdams, Stories We Live By.

“The third strategy is the opposite of the second.  In the compensatory strategy, a good and positive past gives way to a bad and negative present.  Here one’s own personal myth may suggest that the best is over, that ‘it’s all downhill from here.’  In these kinds of accounts, the person affirms that life was once good but something went wrong along the way.  People speak in this regard of a ‘fall from grace,’ a ‘turn for the worse,’ or a ‘loss of innocence.”-Dan McAdams, Stories We Live By.

“The antithetical strategy is an extraordinarily optimistic one, for it gives us fath that no matter how bad things may have been, they can always get better.  This strategy may be used to great advantage in personal myth making.  A person may come to treasure the deprivation and poverty of his or her youth.  A bad past may become a badge of honor as one’s life is mythologically rearranged to show just how far one has come indeed.”-Dan McAdams, The Stories We Live By.

“A second approach to mythmaking is an antithetical strategy.  Here the present is seen as good, but the past is seen as bad.  The contrast between the two may provide the story with its characteristic tension and movement.  The proverbial rags to riches story is a favorite in American folklore, celebrating the belief that a man or woman can rise from humble beginnings in childhood to become a great leader, scientist, doctor, entrepreneur, or whatever.”-Dan McAdams, The Stories We Live By.
