Transcript of Sigmund Freud!!!!!!

Freud compared the mind to an iceberg... and said that the area floating above the water is our consciousness, and the part submerged under the water is our unconsciousness...
Sigmund Freud
Sigmund Freud was a physiologist, medical doctor, and a psychologist. He created many theories, including; The three levels of the mind, The Structural Model of Personality and 'The Freudian Slip'.

Consciousness, Preconsiousness and Unconsciousness...
According to Sigmund Freud, the mind is divided into three levels, which are consciousness, preconsciousness and unconsciousness.
The Conscious mind:
This includes everything we are aware of at any given moment, like our feelings.
The Preconscious mind:
This includes the easily accessible parts of your unconsciousness, like recent memories, or long term memories which you know of by heart, e.g. : Your favorite chocolate bar, T.V program or your phone number.
The Unconscious mind:
This includes our feelings, thoughts and memories which are stored outside of our consciousness. These thoughts are mainly unpleasant, so you don’t think about them However, Freud stated that these feelings affect our behavior, even though we are unaware of it…

(The Structural Model of Personality (or better known as id, ego and superego...)
The id contains our primitive impulses for what we want. The id is usually pictured as a devil, convincing you to do things without thinking. It is our desire to achieve what we want, for example a toddler throwing a tantrum because they aren't allowed what they want.
The ego helps us get what we desire by negotiating with our id. It makes our desires more realistic situations, that can be accomplished in the real world.
Super ego:
The superego judges our decisions, and is usually recognised as being our conscience. The superego also causes us to feel guilt, so if you tell a lie, you will feel guilty. Our conscience is influenced by our parents, and how they act.

The 'Freudian' slip
This theory is that a verbal mistake is linked to your unconscious mind. For example, calling someone by another persons name. You may say this because you may be thinking about someone in your unconscious mind, which you are unaware of. These mistakes in speech reveal what is hiding inside your unconscious mind. Nowadays, these errors are thought to be quite funny, but they may uncover unknown emotions from the speaker.

For I am actually not at all a man of science, not an observer, nor an experimenter, not a thinker. I am by temperament nothing but a conquistador—an adventurer... with all the curiosity, daring, and tenacity characteristics of a man of this sort - Sigmund Freud
Thanks for watching!!!
Short clip of
'the vault'
The vault
In one adventure time episode, called the vault, Finn the human learns about his past, which has been haunting him and giving him nightmares. This reminded me of Freud's definition for our unconscious mind. The freaky lady which is in Finn's recurring nightmares is trapped inside Finn's unconscious mind, yet it affects his behavior. To unlock the secrets of his unconscious mind he must play a video game which tells him about his past lives. It turns out that Finn was the freaky lady, and the lady was slightly evil, but changes heart and becomes good near the end, Unfortunately, she fell into a radioactive river and turned into the monster in Finn's dreams...
