Eight Stages of Personality Development
Alfred Adler
- Considered the father of humanistic psychology from developing the humanistic personality theory, which asserts the fundamental goodness of people and their thriving towards higher levels of functioning.

- Contradicted Freud's psychological views unlike most psychologists who rooted from them.
The effort of a person to overcome personal weaknesses.

- Overcompensation: Characterized by a superiority goal, leads to striving for power, dominance, self-esteem, and self-devaluation.
- Undercompensation: Includes a demand for help, leads to a lack of courage and a fear for life

Inferiority Complex
The fixation on feelings of personal inferiority that results in emotional and social paralysis.

- Primary inferiority feeling: Rooted from a child's original feeling of helplessness, incompetence, weakness, and dependency.
- Secondary inferiority feeling: When a goal invented to relieve an original inferiority feeling is not reached and feelings of depression are prompted (again)

Carl Jung also created a type of psychology known as analytical psychology
Also came up with concepts of introversion and extraversion which is dividing people into two separate groups based on the type of attitude they have towards the world around them.
Believed that the process of individuation was required for a person to become whole and fully developed as a human.
Carl Jung wrote books such as Studies in Word and the Red Book.
Carl Jung contributions to psychology were due to the concepts of introversions and extraversion, which helped contributed to personality psychology and psychotherapy.
Personal Unconscious
-The part of the unconscious mind containing an individuals thoughts and feelings
Collective Unconscious
-The part of the unconscious that is inherited and common to all members of a species
Thought forms common to all human beings, stored in the collective unconscious
