By self-selection became the first generation of psychoanalysts...


the unconventional ones
the doubters
those who were dissatisfied with the limitations imposed on knowledge
the odd ones
the dreamers
those who knew neurotic suffering from their own experience
the mentally endangered
the eccentrics
the self-made
those with excessive flights of imagination

[description, according to Anna Freud, of the characteristics of the personalities of those who, by self-selection, became the first generation of psychoanalysts]
