Just to clarify some things.

Sigmund Freud is not the father of psychology. That honor goes to Wilhelm Wundt who performed psychology's first experiment back in 1879.

Sigmund is the founding father of psychoanalysis which is a branch of psychology.

as a therapy it can work great, a lot of Freud's theories are disproven but his therapy style is still very popular and effective
User avatar #44 to #30 - volleys (08/30/2013) [-]
It's still very popular yes, but only because people milk it for money. Psychoanalysis is the idea that your subconscious(which doesn't exist by the way) predetermines behavior. Research it. Psychoanalysis does not work.
User avatar #80 to #44 - enkmaster (08/30/2013) [-]

Its your subconscious that makes your dreams. People who are capable of Lucid Dreaming (such as myself) are sometimes capable of communicating with their subconscious. Not a conversation with it, mind you. Just asking questions about yourself. What your nightmare means and such.
User avatar #107 to #80 - volleys (08/30/2013) [-]
It doesn't exist. Dreaming is brought on by regular, reduced brain activity. Research it.
User avatar #48 to #44 - hockeykicksass (08/30/2013) [-]
subconscious does very well exist it might not be as you think of, for example you leave your house and you feel like your forgot something and then you realizes that you left your keys in the house, your subconscious is responsible for that feeling its more of an instinct then anything, for psychoanalytical therapy it might not be as effective as cognitive behavioral therapy it can still be used and work, in the theory the subconscious is more biological drives not all behavior, the theory today more focus on early childhood affect on a person, which in some case has support, such as attachment theory.
User avatar #108 to #48 - volleys (08/30/2013) [-]
That is not your subconscious. That is regular memory/forgetting.

Thank you.

Earlier I was looking up stuff about some of the early psychologists and someone had said Freud was the father of psychology...and I just got really mad. (I'm a psych major). Freud's important, but I hate how he's the only person people think of when they think of psychology...especially because a lot of his ideas aren't exactly testable, so they're more or less used as "backboard" ideas and have been reformed.

'one of the founding fathers'
learn to read *******
#103 to #86 - flamingtent (08/30/2013) [-]
I'm sorry if you did not understand my comment. Maybe if I clarify my comment a bit more you can understand what I am talking about.

The content states that Freud was one of the founding father of psychology meaning he contributed to the birth of psychology which isn't true. Freud was a neurologist who make a branch of psychology.

Those are two different things. Unless you believe that there is no difference in the two and that I'm overthinking it. Then I apologize for bothering you with this comment.
User avatar #106 to #103 - teoferrazzi (08/30/2013) [-]
I apologize for my language. this is me on the internet.
but I read 'one of the founding fathers of psychology'
as in 'one person who helped define psychology like it is today'
in a less literal sense of founding father.
you're right, I wouldn't say abraham lincoln is one of the founding fathers of america, for example, but that's because I'm using 'founding fathers' more literally there.
#87 to #10 - anon (08/30/2013) [-]
wundt founded clinical psychology if i remember right, or experimental (definitely the biggest contributor to what it is today through his lab and the people he trained)..but honestly where psychology started being a discipline and stopped being a subsidiary of philosophy is incredibly blurred, according to a professor of mine the closest thing to a father was some spanish guy in the 1500's..don't remember the name because I was 99% sure she picked a spanish guy to please the predominantly Mexican class..

The Oedipus Complex is having some rather 'interesting' feelings for your mother. Named after the Mythical Oedipus who unknowingly shagged his own mother.

EVERYTHING is because of sex.

Mental disorder? Your father raped you as a child (ALWAYS, if you say he didn't, you just don't remember).

Boys being attracted to women? They want to have sex with their mother, but can't because of their father so they get revenge by having sex with women.

Girls attracted to men? They wan't to have sex with their mother, but can't since they aren't boys, so they want to have sex with their father for revenge, but can't because of their mother, so they have sex with men.

Depressed? Use crack (I don't know how that relates to sex, just roll with it).

For clarification, the Oedipus complex is a condition of the human mind said by Freud that made a girl attracted to her father and a boy attracted to his mother i.e. a ************ , which is the pun intended here.

Well, although many of his theories has been proven wrong, he is still the father of psychologi. He was the man who got psychology accepted as a class in gymnasiums and universities around the world. He made people aknowledge the importance of psychologi.

no it really isn't.

actually the post is mostly ******** as freud's theories are still in healthy practice today and i personally find them to be very accurate

Maybe you'd be wanting to read up on it a little bit more, mate. Most of his theories has been proven wrong, however new theories have been build over his ideas and theories. In other words, his are now wrong, but others more accurate and better theories, has been build on his theories.

I would like to point that modern psychoanalysis was born from Freud's work, but was developed much much further by his students.
Jacques Lacan, more than anyone, is the responsible of what modern psychoanalysis has come to be.

And sorry, but most, if not all, of the ideas formulated by Freud still apply nowadays.
Refined, of course. You can't expect the man who creates something new to get it all right at the first try.
#94 - superduperpuper (08/30/2013) [-]
Fun fact: Once there was a man that fell down from a horse. After that he was scared of horses. Freud concluded, that this could only mean, that this person wanted to **** his mother badly.

He was still a genius and the founder of depth psychology.
User avatar #97 to #94 - jibbablabba (08/30/2013) [-]
if it wasn't for us testing his ideas and proving them wrong we wouldn't really know the truth.

I've always held the belief that in school people found out he wanted to **** his mother and kill his dad so he spent his entire life trying to prove that everyone else did too so one day he could go back to his school friends and say, "See! See! I told you it was normal!"

Freud's theories are quite startling and make at least a small amount of sense to me, but I can understand vehement denial that they might be true followed by people working harder than ever to come up with something, anything that might make it a false theory.
