HCO BULLETIN OF 30 APRIL 19691
A pc tends to be able to confront to the degree that he or she feels safe.
If the pc is being audited in an auditing environment that is unsafe or prone to interruption his or her confront is greatly lowered and the result is a reduced ability to run locks, secondaries and engrams and to erase them.
If the auditor’s TRs are rough and his manner uncertain or challenging, evaluative or invalidative, the pc’s confront is reduced to zero or worse.
This comes from a very early set of laws (Dianetics: The Original Thesis):
Auditor plus pc is greater than the bank,
Auditor plus bank is greater than the pc,
Pc minus auditor is less than the bank.
(By “bank” is meant the mental image picture collection of the pc. It comes from computer technology where all data is in a “bank”.)
The difference between auditors is not that one has more data than another or more tricks. The difference is that one auditor will get better results than another due to his stricter adherence to procedure, better TRs, more confident manner, and closer observance of the Auditor’s Code.
No “bedside manner” is required or sympathetic expression. It’s just that an auditor who knows his procedures and has good TRs inspires more confidence. The pc doesn’t have to put his attention on or cope with the auditor and feels safer and so can confront his bank better.
