Each and every individual in this world has their own unique personality, which makes them who they are. Depending on who one asks, some may have more interesting personalities than others, however, personality is just as important for one person as it is for another. Kim Kardashian, a well-known and successful woman, has an appealing personality that has helped her become who she is today. Her name appears in magazines, Internet articles, the news, books, and on television, making her one of the most talked about women in the media. Analyzing her personality will be helpful in understanding who she is today and how she came to be that way. Kim Kardashian was born on October 21 st , 1980 in Los Angeles, California. She has a Dutch, Scottish, Armenian and American background through her mother, Kris Kardashian and her father, Robert Kardashian. (Biography Celebrity) Fame seemed to be all around Kim, even from a very young age. One of her pre-school friends was Paris Hilton and her father, Robert Kardashian fell into the spotlight of the media while defending O.J. Simpson in 1994 and was also the founder of Movie Tunes, Inc. Kim’s mother, Kris owned a children’s boutique and was a TV personality as well. (Bio. True Story) In 2003, however, Kim lost her father to esophagus cancer. (Mock and Wang) Kim also has two other sisters, Kourtney and Khloe, and a younger brother, Rob. Her relationship with her family is very strong and close-knit. Throughout her years, Kim has dated many men, and has even been married to two of them. All of the events in her life have affected her and shaped her personality into what it is today. The psychoanalytic aspects of personality include Freud’s parts of the mind (id, ego, and superego), psychosexual development, and defense mechanisms. (Friedman and Schustack) Kim Kardashian, just like most people in this world, has instincts and

impulses, along with a desire to have pleasure in her life. However, the ego aspect of her mind allows her to stay in touch with reality and the real world. Through interviews and articles, Kim Kardashian seems to be realistic and levelheaded. Her superego allows her to realize what is moral and what is not according to society, which in turn allows her to make decisions that would be deemed acceptable by the public. As a celebrity, the public’s opinion of her is important, therefore the superego is helpful in guiding her actions and decisions. According to Freud, there are five psychosexual stages, including the oral stage, the anal stage, the phallic stage, the latency period, and the genital stage. If one can get through the first four stages with enough sexual energy still available, then the genital stage will allow for a balanced and healthy lifestyle for the most part. During the genital stage, one is able to become involved with secure and mature relationships, including marriage and relationships with one’s own children. (Friedman and Schustack)
