The Grinch’s personality Today, we are analyzing the Grinch’s personality from three perspectives: Sigmund Freud, Carl Rogers, & Alfred Adler.
Sigmund Freud Psychodynamic approach: focuses on the past and the subconscious.
Carl Rogers Humanistic approach: focuses on relationships.
Alfred Adler Psychodynamic/humanistic: the power of the past, but in social relationships.
Freud Three parts of the human mind: 1. Ego: mostly conscious, operates on “reality principle.” Mediator. 2. Superego: your “conscience.” Both conscious and unconscious. Fights the id. 3. Id: unconscious psychic energy that operates on “pleasure principle”—wants to fulfill basic biological drives.
Freud
