Psychoanalytic perspectives

Psychoanalytic Perspectives

  • psychodynamics  linking how one’s conscious and unconscious thoughts invoke their behavior

  • preconscious  unconscious thoughts that can be easily recalled and brought to consciousness

  • free association  a technique used in psychoanalysis where the patient speaks freely of their thoughts which often leads to discoveries of the unconscious

  • libido  driving instinct energy in the id

Structures of personality

Structures of Personality

  • Id  The largest and unconscious part of your personality that seeks to satisfy physiological needs no matter what.

  • Ego  It is partly conscious and partly unconscious. It puts constraints on the id’s needs.

  • Superego  Partly conscious and partly unconscious. Tells us what is right and wrong because it wants us to choose what is right.

Myers, David G. (2007). Psychology: EIGHTH EDITION. New York: Worth Publishers.


Psychoanalytic perspectives1

Psychoanalytic Perspectives

  • pleasure principle  people have a tendency to seek pleasure and avoid pain, and they do so without acknowledging any consequences

Defense mechanisms1

Defense Mechanisms

  • repression the unconscious suppression of uncomfortable thoughts. when certain unbearable events occur, we place them in our subconscious to forget about or deal with later.

  • projectionassigning uncomfortable thoughts or feelings to another person

  • reaction formation when a person wants to do or say something but actually does or says the complete opposite of what they really want.


Defense mechanisms2

Defense Mechanisms

  • rationalization when a person tries to convince himself/herself of something based on rational and logical thoughts

  • denial a form of repression where a person refuses to acknowledge that an event has occurred. The person acts as though nothing has happened, behaving in ways that others may see as bizarre.


Defense mechanisms3

Defense Mechanisms

  • identification  boosting self-esteem by aligning with someone(s)

    • partial identification: when a person associates himself/herself (whether it be an actual association or a make-believe one) with someone else in order to be part of a social group

    • primary identification:taking on the characteristics of someone else in order to be able to do things that the model was able to do (usually a parent)

    • narcissistic identification: when a person imitates something because of their loss of it


Defense mechanisms4

Defense Mechanisms

  • sublimation  turning undesirable needs into something that is more desirable.

  • displacement converting feelings generated by one thing / person into feelings expressed towards another external object / person
