Freud, Fritz View, Zsolnay discussed on Your Brain on Facts


The end as babies attempt and fail to get all of their whims met, they develop a more realistic appreciation for what is possible, which is called the ego. Overtime babies. Also, learn about and come to internalize, and represent their parents values and rules these rules. The superego are the basis for the developing child consciousness that struggles with the concepts of right and wrong and works with the ego to control the immediate gratification urges of the it Freud didn't discover the unconscious mind, of course, that stink tion goes to French psychiatrist peers Zsolnay, but it was Freud who took the concept to the next level by breaking it down even further and by applying it to psychotherapy and free association where patients would openly talk about their feelings and experiences regardless of how irrelevant absurd or upsetting it sounded. Human genitalia was kind of a big deal with Freud. In fact, he believed that all peoples personalities and how well they functioned in society were result of developing through five psycho sexual stages. Orel anal phallic latency and genital in Fritz view, each stage focused on sexual activity and the pleasure received from a particular area of the body in the oral phase children are focused on the pleasure. They receive from nursing and biting with their mouth in the anal face this focus shifts to the anus as they began toilet training and attempt to control their bowels. If parents take an approach that's too lenient Freud suggests that anal explosive personality could develop in which the individual has a messy wasteful or destructive personality if the parents are too strict or begin toilet training too early for. Leave that an anal retentive personality develops in which the individual is rigid orderly and obsessive as if potty training wasn't hard enough for parents adherence to Freud's belief also had to deal with worrying that they would make their children gay by potty training them incorrectly. In the phallic stage, the focus moves to genital stimulation and the sexual identification that comes with whether or not you have a penis during this face Freud thought that children turned their interest and love toward the parent of the opposite sex and begin to strongly resent the parent of the same sex. This Oedipus complex is named for the Greek tragedy in which the protagonist fulfills a prophecy by unknowingly, killing his father and marrying and having children with his mother, supposedly boys begin to view their fathers as a rival for their mother's affections. They want to possess their mother and eliminate their father. How? Ever the child also fears. He will be punished by his father for these feelings of fear that Freud termed castration, anxiety since girls can't feel this castration anxiety. They instead feel permanent penis envy. Which will revisit shortly? Girls allegedly want to possess their fathers and replaced their mothers, which is called an electric complex. Electro was another ancient Greek character who plotted with her brother to kill their mother. But there's was revenge plot for the death of their father. So the name is kind of a stretch in this reporters opinion. Eventually, according to Freud the child begins to identify with the same sex parent as a means of vicariously, possessing the other parent. The phallic or edible stage was thought to be followed by a period of latency during which sexual urges and interests were temporarily nonexistent finally children were thought to enter and remain in a genital stage in which adult sexual interest and activities come to dominate. There have been a number of observations and criticisms of Freud's psycho-sexual theory through the years on a number of grounds, including scientific and feminist critiques the theories focused almost entirely on male development. The theories are difficult to test scientifically concepts such as libido are impossible to measure, and therefore cannot be empirically tested. Freud said a thing that he can't prove to be true in a way that makes it hard to prove that it's not true. Future. Predictions are vague.
