Fifties Pop Culture I. Mainstreaming Freudian psychotherapy Became a national goal to manage national resources. The Freudian idea changed greatly in the 50's from what it was in the 20's. Hitler used this kind of psychology (of the unconscious mind) to motivate and brainwash which is enforcing ideas extremely repeatedly until the individual subconsciously thinks it's true A. the Hawthorne studies Varied light in a pin/needle factory to try and find optimal level of lighting. Production went up when light was dimmed and brightened Found out it wasn't the actual lighting level, but the psychology that they wanted to please the conductors of the survey (Harvard grads). Workers were motivated to perform better and better for these grad students B. movie-plot triangles- very prominent movie plot style of the 50's For example a man would think he killed someone (criminal), find out he witnessed one (psychologist), and justice is served (police).

    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.
