Psychology The unconscious mind is the largest place in your mind, it lies far below the surface. This part of the mind is the part where we are unaware our thoughts, drives, desires, and memories. This includes the id, which is part of the unconscious mind. The id acts according to our “pleasure principle”, looking to avoid pain or dissatisfaction. The id is our basic drives, such as aggression and sexual desire. Sigmund Freud believed that our unconscious directly impacts us without us actually realizing. This concept is in my everyday life, and is also in everybody else’s life. Every day of my life, I wouldn’t even think that my motivation comes from the unconscious part of my mind, let alone my mind. I would just know I’m doing something, but now I’m aware that I’m doing something because I’m motivated, and that’s part of the unconscious part of my mind. For example, in the morning, I have to motivate myself because I know if i don’t get up for school, I’m going to miss the bus, and I would lose out on my education. Our “whole self” would be, who we are. Who we are isn’t simply or name, it’s every part of us. Our well-being, our health, is all part of that. Our social, biological, developmental, psychological, and spiritual- beings are part of that too. This topic is in my everyday life. People that newly enter my life, ask, “Who are you?” I generally answer with,” My name is Skyla, or I’m Skyla.” I wouldn’t answer with my whole background story. I barely even know how to answer when people ask me that because it’s such a general question. Little did I know that, that general question had a life-long answer. Neo-Freudians were people who developed different theories based on Freud’s theories. Neo-Freudians would be people like Alfred Adler, Carl Jung, and Karen Horney. Even though they all disagreed with Freud’s theory, their theories were based off his theory. Alfred Adler

Similar to Freudian psychology, Carl Jung addresses the different aspect of the unconscious and conscious mind. His Neo-Analytic theory highlights the parts of the mind as the conscious ego, the personal unconscious, and the collective unconscious. The conscious ego is described as the core of self-awareness and its purposes are to make a person aware of thoughts and feelings the outside environment. Comparable to Freud’s theory, the personal unconscious consists of contemplations that are not outwardly…
