Soon, Danny proposes to Vicky, and she says "yes." Before they could walk down the aisle, Vicky is offered her dream job in New York. Danny, saddened by this, tells her that it's over, saying, "I can't ask you to give up your dream, so I guess I'll have to give up mine."

D.J. (Donna Jo)- Danny's oldest daughter. She feels like her dad always embarrasses her or pries into her life too much, but she knows he has her best interests at heart. She gets irritated about the limits her father gives her and although she breaks them, she always learns the lessons that Danny teaches her.
Stephanie- Danny's middle child. When she is little, she loves spending time with Danny. She goes through a stage where she never wants Danny to leave her side. Danny is overprotective of her, especially when she starts dating.

Danny's Important Relationships

Alfred Adler's Psychoanalytic Approach: Stephanie Tanner
The Socially Useful Type: strives to do good for the sake of society
Stephanie always wants what's best for her and her family.
Cares for those around her.
Good example of this would be when her friend was being abused by his parents.
Talked to Uncle Jesse and called a help number
really cares about her friend
Adler's Birth Order Theory

Stephanie is the middle child.
Adler sees personality traits of those type of children which definitely match up with some of Stephanie's behavior.
feels the need to keep up
wanting attention
even tempered

Stephanie's Big 5
Stephanie correlates most with 2 out of the 5 traits. Extraversion and Agreeableness
she's very talkative, especially when young
Emotional expressiveness- she is very open about something when it bothers her or excites her.
Affectionate especially with her family, even as she gets older.
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
Throughout the show, Stephanie becomes fixated Love/Belong level of the hiearchy.

Level focuses on friendship, family, and sexual intimacy.
Although her family loves her, the idea and behaviors of being the middle child gets in the way of her seeing this.
As she matures she has trouble starting more intimate relationships with boys.
Deals with peer pressure
More specific example is when she has to go to a different middle school than her other friends.
worried about making new friends
fitting in

Karen Horney's Psychoanalytic Theory: Danny Tanner
Danny's Big 5 Traits
Hierarchy of Needs
Stephanie Tanner can be best analyzed through Adler's appraches, most specifically the idea of compensation. Being the middle child and constantly feeling the need to "Catch up", Stephanie tries to make up for her deficiencies in other areas. This is what also ultimately leads her to stay fixated at the Love/Belonging level of Maslow's hierarchy.

Parental indifference leads children to develop anxiety and neuroticism
Danny's parents had gotten divorced, which means there was tension in his household growing up
Danny Tanner shows signs of the third neurotic type: Withdrawn- He has a neurotic need for perfection. He is self-sufficient and independent (due to his wife's passing)
An example of Danny being emotionally unstable is when he can't settle down with a new woman after his wife dies
An example of Danny being obsessive is with his cleaning his house constantly and making sure everything is always in order
Danny is most conscientious out of the "big five"
He is thoughtful, has good impulse control, has goal-directed behaviors, is very organized and is mindful of details
He has to raise his daughters who can be quite a handful but has proven that he has good impulse control
Danny also likes to stay very organized, so although he has so many things going on at once like his job, dating, and taking care of his kids, he is always very well put together
Danny shows signs of not having the personality trait of extroversion
He is not very social because he is so consumed with everything else that takes over his life
He also doesn't have high amounts of emotional expressivemess and instead tends to keep to himself when it comes to relationships and new friendships
Danny's primary level of fixation is at level four: esteem
Throughout the series, Danny is at the point in his life where he mostly has or desires to have self-esteem, confidence, achievement, respect of others, and respect by others
He knows where he stands in life
He has kids, a house, and a stable job
He knows what is expected from him and does what he can to get by and make the best out of life with his family and friends

Danny's Conclusion
Danny Tanner can be best analyzed through the "big five" personality characteristic of Conscientiousness. He is very thoughtful because he always thinks and puts his daughters' needs before his own. His behavior is all goal-directed because he has the intentions of raising his family right and takes precautions in order to ensure that he will achieve his goals. There are many lessons that he teaches his girls. Everything that he does is organized and detail-oriented.
