Psych of Women Test 2 Study Guide 1. Neo-Freudians a. Duetsche—“Freud’s dutiful daughter” -penis envy is real but is not most essential role in girls’ personality development -there is a natural awe women have of men -did not believe in Freud’s resolution of Electra and Oedipal complexes; bond between mother and daughter is crucial toward personality development, and this is basis for gender identity -3 central drives and how we negotiate them is responsible for personality development i. narcissism: subordinates should enjoy role they are given (being a mother); you are narcissistically healthy if you embraced all the roles women are given ii. passivity: central of the 3; women naturally have an attitude of receptive waiting (women give up their name when they marry); woman’s needs will be met as she meets needs of others (her needs are secondary) iii. masochism: women are willing to undergo suffering (bringing children into world); highest contribution women can make is that of motherhood b. Erikson -men developed personality in state of ever-increasing separation -theory was based on males -8 stages of man 1. basic trust vs. mistrust: is environment trusting or harmful? 2. autonomy vs. shame/doubt: are you constantly being criticized or are you able to develop a sense of autonomy about self? 3. initiative vs. guilt: learn to take initiative or not (to the degree you would feel guilty/inferior) 4. industry vs. inferiority: realize you need to work hard to achieve, and you feel inferior if you see others achieving more than you 5. identity (intimacy) vs. role confusion: young men need to learn what their roles are in this world; women need to learn to be intimate, learn to be a good woman and compliant—if we don’t accept those roles, that leads to role confusion) -woman’s identity comes from intimacy with a man 6. intimacy (identity) vs. isolation: develop capacity for intimacy 7. generativity vs. stagnation 8. ego integrity vs. despair -said the physical design of women had a lot to do with their roles and intimacy before identity (woman’s womb is passively waiting for fetus)
