Moore 1 Kristen Moore Mrs. Kristy French English III Honors 7 May 2017 Analysis of the Relevancy of Freudian Psychology When one unintentionally says something that reveals their thoughts, this is known as a Freudian Slip. When one is being uptight and hostile, they are said to be acting â€Å"anal.† If one witnesses something embarrassing, they claim they hope to repress the memory. If one is a moody, maladaptive worrywart, they are said to be neurotic. All of these common colloquial terms go back to a 19th-20th century psychologist named Sigmund Freud. Freud published a myriad of theories regarding the human mind and its inner workings, which have since fallen from practice. A great majority of his theories have been disproven and rendered†¦show more content†¦Within this work, Freud had written the beginnings of his extensive theories on the human psyche and what goes on in the subconscious mind (McLeod, Saul, Sigmund Freud s Theories†). Freud’s most credible work is that of the unconscious mind. He proposed that there are three levels of the mind’s consciousness: the Conscious, Preconscious/Subconscious, and the Unconscious (McLeod, Saul, Sigmund Freud s Theories†). The Conscious is the waking mind in which real-time thought processes that one is aware of are occurring (McLeod, Saul, Sigmund Freud s Theories†). The Preconscious or Subconscious is the waking mind from which memories can be called; it functions as storage and one is not necessarily aware of its processes (McLeod, Saul, Sigmund Freud s Theories†). The Unconscious is the deepest level of the mind that one is unaware of; it supposedly harbors strong desires and suppressed experiences that unknowingly influence the waking mind (McLeod, Saul, Sigmund Freud s Theories†). All three of these come together to form the person to which they belong, and both influence and are influenced by the Ego, Superego, and ID (McLeod, Saul, Sigmund Freud s Theories†). The Ego, Superego, and ID are three pieces of the mind that determine one’s moral capacity, thoughts, and actions (McLeod, Saul, Sigmund Freud s Theories†).
