Axia College Material Appendix D TV Character Evaluation Part I Write a summary of 350-700 words identifying the contributions of Freud, Jung, and Rogers. Three psychologists: Freud, Jung, and Rogers were illustrious thinkers and theorists – each manifested an immense impact on field of psychology. Although their theories differ some, the three theorists did share some commonalities, e.g., all had supported the notion of an unconscious state of personality. Sigmund Freud's mode of psychotherapy focused on the role of the unconscious to direct human behavior. Freud’s view: Considers that humans are conducted primarily by sexual and aggressive instincts and the pursuit of pleasure - which is driven by the unconscious structure named the id. The pleasure principle is the principle of obtaining an immediate pleasure in two ways-reflex options and fantasy through wish fulfillment or satisfaction of instincts (Morris and Maisto, 2002). He believed that the largest role- player of the human mind is the unconscious. Freud held fast to the theory that the mind is divided into three parts called the id (cited earlier on), the ego and the superego. The id is the mind’s pleasure-seeking mechanism, the ego is the rational part of the mind and the superego the equilibrator of the desires of the id and ego. In concert, the id, ego and the superego are the sources for all human motivations. He also contributed to the field of dream analysis and to the study of the human tendency to seek gratification. He believed that sexual urges are present from birth and he identified five stages of psychosexual development. BEH 225

His theory holds that it is necessary to understand all facets of a person composition. Carl
