TV Character Evaluation Rogers, Freud, and Jung were theorists in the realm of fundamental psychology. There work has had a major impact on what we know today about psychology. Each of these men had a rather unique contribution and though each had different theories and viewpoints, they each shared many of the same ideas. The main idea they all had in common had to do with the 'unconscious state of personality'. Freud Freud’s primary area of research centered around neurology, neuropathology, and anesthesia. His theory was centered on how the unconscious mind played a role in driving conscious behavior, primarily on sexual behavior. He theorized how the unconscious part of the mind was the largest. His point of view concluded that the human mind was motivated by aggressive impulses and sexual impulses the fed the pursuit of pleasure by centered in the unconscious structure he called the 'id'. He believed 'the mind is divided into three parts called the id, the ego and the super-ego' (Morris & Maisto, 2002, p. 419). Freud believed that this 'id' was the basis for the human quest for pleasure, that 'ego' was the rational part of our mind, and the 'super-ego' was the portion of the mind that balanced the needs of the other two parts. According to his theory, the 'id', the 'ego' and the 'super-ego' are the fundamental sources for all human motivations (Morris & Maisto, 2002). Freud believed, 'The id is the only component of personality that is present from birth. This aspect of personality is entirely unconscious and includes signs of the instinctive and primitive behaviors. According to Freud, the id is the source of all psychic energy, making it the primary component of personality' (Van Wagner, n.d).

    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.
