Psych 020 March 18, 2008 Freud II Model of Mind Defense Mechanisms Tapping the Unconscious Answer These Questions What is Freud’s model of the mind and personality? How does an individual deal with extreme anxiety? How can you get information about the unconscious mind? Psychodynamic Theory Id urges Ego manager Superego morality At first, the ego only has to worry about the external reality Over time, superego I making “demands” as well SUPEREGO is beginning to control EGO by giving rewards for compliance o PRIDE and punishment for non-compliance o GUILT NOTE: difficult position of ego ID and SUPEREGO are often in conflict EGO tries to get SUPEREGO and ID to agree, EGO is stuck in the middle ID and SUPEREGO are infantile…formed when the child was young ID is unreasoning, unmovable, and SUPEREGO doesn’t care, it believes there is only a right way and a wrong way SUPEREGO is irrational…blind “do’s” and “do not’s” Unconscious mind and Conscious Mind A lot like an ice berg, the conscious mind is the part of the iceberg above the water, and the unconscious is below the water 90% of the iceberg is below the surface of the water DIVIDE o The ID is all unconscious o The EGO is mostly conscious, but sometimes unconscious because it has to communicate to ID o SUPEREGO has an unconscious and conscious part, but mostly unconscious, only conscious to communicate to EGO

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
