Document Summary

Personality- unique and relatively stable pattern of thoughts, feelings and actions. Conscious mind- above the water , open to easy inspection. Preconscious- information that can be viewed with a little extra effort. Id- primitive, instinctive part of personality that works on the pleasure principle (seek immediate gratification) Ego- the rational, decision-making part of personality that operates according to the reality principle (delay gratification of the id"s impulses until it is appropriate) Superego- the conscience or moral part of personality that incorporates parental and societal standards for morality (guilt if rules are violated) Defense mechanisms- the ego"s protective method of reducing anxiety by distorting reality and self-deception. Psychosexual stages of personality development- developmental periods during which particular kinds of pleasures must be gratified if personality development is to proceed normally. Inadequate empirical support- many psychoanalytic concepts, such as the psychosexual stages, cannot be empirically tested.
