Carl Jung asks a question to Otto grass.

Carl: So you're not a believer in monogamy?

Otto: For a neurotic like myself I can't possibly imagine a more stressful concept.

Is Otto grass saying indirectly don't believe in monogamy?

  • Yes; there is an implied "[That is correct, because]" at the beginning of his response.

    What do you mean by don't believe in? That he thinks it is a bad idea or convention and is urging someone not to become monogamous? Why are you using the imperative?

In his answer, Otto Grass is acknowledging the concept of monogamy, but saying it is not suitable for him to practice.

So, to answer your question, Grass believes monogamy exists, but will not practice it, in the same way that vegeterians believe meat exists, but will not eat it.
