Jan 27th FREUD CONTINUED... Constancy Principle In spite of urges and the aim of instincts to gain pleasure and release, the constancy principle aim s to bring all tension to zero . Aim of psychic system is tension reduction . How do you reduce tension when there is this libidal set of urges. Enacting or expressing or experiencing the instincts, that should lead to tension reduction (in principle, at least) Almost impossible to achieve. Super Ego Ego Id Psychic urges are in conflict with each other. Operating in opposite directions. ID and Libido (located in id) is seeking pleasure “Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme!” Wants instant gratification EGO - Outgrowth of id No energy of own, not autonomous/independent. Grows out of libido, fueled by libido, grows out of id. Not about seeking pleasure in particular. Mediating between id (child trying to find way to get what it wants) and superego (demands perfection, obedience to rules) When ego develops there comes to be a capacity to separate fantasy and REALITY . Engaging with world in whatever manner. Dealing with pressures from reality and refereeing boxing match between id and superego. Slave to three very harsh masters (id, superego, reality). Fundamentally weak (since it stems from libido) SUPEREGO - Next thing to emerge Also fueled by libido Emerges later than 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.
