Apotropaic. Descriptive of "magical thinking," based on the desire to depotentiate the influence of an object or person. Apotropaic actions are characteristic of introversion as a mode of psychological orientation.

I have seen an introverted child who made his first attempts to walk only after he had learned the names of all the objects in the room he might touch.["Psychological Types," CW6, par. 897.]
