Sheet1 Page 1 23. FreudÕs tendency to form idealizing relationships ¥Take Martha from Faces in a Cloud as an example. He wanted to mold her into an idealized image of perfection in order to prevent traumatic betrayals ¥Had a defensive mindset with his relationships. He wanted to protect the image of his relationships from invasion by negative effects. ¥Take Fliess for example where when Fliess messed up an operation, he took to blame in order to protect his relationship with Fliess. This same occurrence appears several times when he protects his mother 24. The purpose of psychobiographical analysis of personality theories ¥All theories of personality will remain colored by subjective and personal influences ¥It is person-centered research, which gathers large amounts of information on a specific person, where you can identify recurrent themes and see how a life is organized. ¥The internal pressures and external circumstances that contribute to enduring patterns of though and behaviorÑbasically itÕs the ¥long way of doing it ¥What information you collect from the person is influence by your own life experiences because people tend to identify with others and dwell on their similarities 25. FreudÕs speculative theory of the girlÕs psychosexual development ¥He saw that in civilization, women have a restraining influence on children and resent the intimacy and love that work takes away from marital relationships ¥They blame their mothers for not being boys and that is why they start to pull away from their mothers when they realize ¥This realization is coupled with the knowledge that her mother doesnÕt have a penis leads to her thinking her mother is unworthy, and becoming attracted to her father, as he does have a penis ¥Girls will develop love for their mother until they come to this realization then switch over to love for their father 26. Subjective anthropomorphism (Hull) and mechanomorphism (Maslow) ¥Anthropomorphism is giving something unhuman humanistic characteristics such as emotions ¥Mechanomorphism is seeing that which is not a machine as a machine (attributing non human thinking to humans). It is basically making humans like robots 27. WatsonÕs turn to atheism ¥Watson was raised in South Carolina Southern Baptist ¥He was closest to his mother who was a fanatic with regard to the church and he always promised her that he would become a minister. However, ¥Take Martha from Faces in a Cloud as an example. He wanted to mold her into an idealized image of perfection in order to prevent traumatic betrayals ¥Had a defensive mindset with his relationships. He wanted to protect the image of his relationships from invasion by negative effects. ¥Take Fliess for example where when Fliess messed up an operation, he took to blame in order to protect his relationship with Fliess. This same occurrence appears several times when he protects his mother 24.

    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.
