Freud and personality (chapter 14: covered on final exam)
Psychodynamic theory (things that happened in your childhood end up shaping your life now)
Freud believed mind was divided into three parts:
ID: unconscious irrational source of primitive
impulses (child: fully id, I want this and that, id
provides urges like hunger and desires, its not
usually moral, when it wasnt something, it wants it,
doesnt care about anything else, grabbing someone
when we’re hungry)
EGO: conscious and realistic (rational part of self, I
might go to jail if you grab a person because youre
horny so you shouldnt do it)
SUPEREGO: both conscious and unconscious, based on rules and
prohibitions we have internalized (angel, what is the right thing to do,
thinks things like what will happen if you were to eat all of
the food in the fridge, what will your roommate do for food, it is developed
by society, parents, friends, etc)
Defence mechanisms (when we get impulses from the brain that are not proper and must to
regulated)
Example: little child (3yrs) getting all attention from parents, only child, id wants attention,
always gets what he wants, mom gets pregnant and has another child, first child is losing his
attention to new-born, first child wants attention (he doesnt get what he wants that quickly
anymore), he develops hatred towards the new-born, it is not appropriate for him to go to the new
child and say I’m going to kill you)
Repression: repressing, involves pushing back into unconscious (the boy saying its ok to
have a sibling, the more the merrier, I dont have any problems, not thinking about
problems, it takes energy to push big things out, may cause mental disorders in the long
run)
Reaction formation: flipping the feeling were having (the first born thinks that he loves
the new-born instead of hating him, intensity is still there)
