Taking inspiration from Gabriele Profita’s paper: "Malinteso e conflitto, il sot-tile confine tra negoziare e agire", which was published in this Journal in 2014, the author discusses some case studies while also drawing parallelisms with other pro-fessions. Some aspects of the phenomenon: "misunderstanding" are thus investi-gated from the patient’s and the psychotherapist’s point of view, while also keep-ing in mind norms and theories. Exemplifications will help to define misunder-standings arising from a condition of suffering which is difficult to verbalize, when both patient and therapist are confronted with unpredictability and the unknown.

Keywords: Misunderstanding, Fear of the Unknown, Ability to think, Individua-tion, Standard procedures.
