Vithoulkas has talked about Kali Arsenicosum in relation to its fear of heart disease, but he hasn't said much about the rest of the mental symptoms. The first case I will present below is an old case, based in Vithoulkas picture, with little reference to the group analysis, because I did not know what to look for at that time. The second case includes the group analysis, based on the type of questions I had learned to ask by then.
They feel they always have to do their duty, otherwise things will go very wrong. They never stop, they can't afford to rest, afraid to risk their job or their career. They are equally precise regarding their health, as if they don't take care, things might go very wrong. Their body may dissolve, just as their job may dissolve.
They are scrupulous in their observation of the smallest symptoms, in case it is the first sign of something serious. It is their duty to warn the doctor, but if he says there is nothing to worry about, they feel he hasn't taken it seriously and he hasn't done his duty.
Their job often revolves around a kind of termination. They may choose to become a doctor, where the theme of work is around life and death. Or they become lawyers, where they can make judgments around redundancies, inheritances or bankruptcies, or they work as a bailiff where the termination of an era of possession is the central theme.
It is their duty to work in a controlled and precise manner.
If they make a mistake it may result in someone being wrongly condemned to pay a fine or give up his job.
If they are not extremely conscientious as a doctor they might miss the first signs of a fatal disease.
They don't tolerate mistakes, either in themselves or in others. And mistakes always happen at the most unexpected moments, usually when their attention has been momentarily diverted.
