V. Structure of Personality A. Overview B. Three principles C. The ID D. The Ego E. The Super-Ego VI. Psychodynamics A. Hard tasks of the Ego B. Intrapsychic conflict - situation with anxiety, guilt or shame coupled with an important motive or feeling (gigantic fat man who wants to be taken care of by people but is ashamed of that, ex. want to angrily retaliate but feel guilty to do that) C. Defense Mechanisms - some authors say 5, 8, 10... There are 3 main ones listed below (repression, projection, reaction formation: would be found anywhere) 1. Unconscious 2. Maladaptive 3. Three major types (i) repression; (ii) projection; (iii) reaction formation - (i) REPRESSION: motivated forgetting, ignoring. It is the forcing out of consciousness of an anxiety arousing impulse or idea or perception or memory - ex. if i forgot my lunch then it was presumably an accident. but if i didn’t like my lunch and i “forgot it” then that is repression - ex. you are in NYC, leave your hotel to take a taxi downtown and the driver is very rude and you are filled with murderous rage. you have been raised to believe it is not nice to kill others so you feel guilty. you get out of the taxi... repression does not mean denial but means being oblivious (blanking out). repressive thoughts to murderous rage is NOT to say “he wasn’t rude to me” (that is denial). repression is when friend says “he was disgusting” and you say “what do you mean”. it is forcing out of awareness. this is an unconscious process you are not trying to push it out of your mind.

    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.
