Transcript of The Consciousness of Freud

The Consciousness of Freud According to Freud, there are 3 levels of the consciousness The Conscious The Preconscious The Unconscious This part of the brain recalls memories. These memories are not part of one's immediate awareness, but can be retracted through conscious effort. Not directly accessible to awareness. Known as the "dump box" for emotions tied to anxiety, conflict & pain. Let's take a look at the Iceberg Metaphor Thoughts, perceptions Memories, Stored knowledge Preconscious Level Conscious Level Unconscious Level Violent Motives Shameful Experiences Selfish Needs Fears Immoral Urges Irrational Wishes The Conscious: Defined as subjective experiences, awareness, the ability to experience feelings, wakefulness, the understanding of the concept "self", & the ability to control the system of one's mind. "The conscious mind may be compared to a fountain playing in the sun and falling back into the great subterranean pool of subconscious from which it rises."
-Sigmund Freud P The conscious mind is sequential. It likes logical order.
The unconscious mind processes simultaneously. It multitasks. The conscious mind is logical. It likes things to make sense – have a reason.

The unconscious mind is intuitive and can make associations of information easily. The conscious mind seeks answers to “why”?

The unconscious mind knows why. Your conscious mind is associated with the waking, thinking state.

The unconscious mind is associated with the dreaming (including day dreaming), reflecting, meditating and sleeping state. This is the part of the mind that holds
one's awareness. A person can verbalize
their conscious experiences and think
about it in a logical fashion. ARALLELS Understanding the Id, Ego, and Superego ID: The Id is the primitive mind. EGO: The Ego says you cannot always get what you want; SUPEREGO: The Superego becomes an embodiment of parental and societal values which it enforces rules & norms. Superego: The Referees: They enforce rules and consequences for penalties such as passing interference, unnecessary roughness, & roughing the passer. Id: Defensive End (DE) & Linebackers (LB): The DE's job has a fairly simple job. If it's a running play, move forward so the Runningback (RB) cannot escape their tackle. If it is a pass, their job is to get to the Quarterback (QB) as quickly as possible to make a successful sack & cause a fumble. This is their primitive goal. Ego: Runningbacks & Quarterbacks: Tell or show that DE or LB cannot always get what they want. RB can prove this point if he makes a successfull run (ideally for a Touchdown), and a QB also proves this if he is left untouched with a perfect spiral & his Wide Receiver (WR) makes a successful catch ideally in the Red Zone for the TD. (PI because he initiates contact with a defender by shoving or pushing off which creates a separation in the attempt to catch a pass) Roger Staubach throws a Hail Mary Id, Ego & Superego in Football Terms
