Well, I'll have to have a think while I reread the play.
I always used to do this once a year but it's been a while.
(I like to read it outloud, but maybe the Paul Scofield radio version is a thought.)

I'm immediately intrigued by
>5. Representational agency - actions seen as caused by intentions which are also recognised as mental processes. Mind is represented to itself, so intentions are not just means to an end, but mental states in themselves.

I guess that in therapy I was putting all kinds of unpleasant emotions into my therapist with a range of challenging behaviour and emotion (fun stuff).
That's certainly not
3.Teleological agency
in the sense that any actions I was performing were kind of useless as real world activities as opposed to psychic processes (in which case it might have made sense).

So maybe it's relevant whether we are talking about actions or feelings?
