The effects of personality on sports performance

...The effects of the ego and super ego can be seen when a football player wont take a penalty in a shoot-out because they are worried about letting their team down. The psychodynamic view tries to understand the individual as a whole rather thana looking at different parts of their personality. This approach isn’t used very often in sport as it focuses on the reasons why we behave a certain way, it focuses on behaviour that comes from an individual and ignores the athlete’s environment. This t...

Mental Duality

...There are not two minds. While I do believe there are two parts of the brain connected by certain commissures and connections, I do not believe there are two separate streams of consciousness. Never have I seen someone strain and fight between two different minds. However, often have I witnessed and felt the strain between good and evil and the struggle to understand the grey. Name one premise that every single person in the world would absolutely agree is absolutely positive and has absolutely ...

Carl Jung: The Undiscovered Self

...The spiritual and religious person holds characteristics of both while the neither spiritual nor religious person holds few if any of these characteristics. In the book, Jung distinguishes between religion and creed, labeling religion as the relationship of an individual to God and a creed as a confession of faith in a collective belief. Creeds have codified their views, customs and beliefs and externalized themselves to such an extent that the external point of reference has become of minor im...

The Crossing: Cormac McCarthy

...The lack of the fire's reflection seems to mean that the "fire" of the wolf's soul had burned out and by closing her lifeless eyes, the subject was paying his respects to her. After the subject performs this task, he then sits next to the wolf, places his and on her forehead, and closes his own eyes. He then imagines her running through the mountains. His reverie is full of intense visual imagery of mountains, starlight, the sun, animals that might have been the wolf's prey, et cetera. All the ...

"We Were the Mulvaneys" by Joyce Carol Oates

...Prose pieces such as this can be better interpreted if one knows the "whole story" (for lack of a better term). At first read one was confused at why a young boy would be so concerned with death and endings, but after knowing what was to come in his life one understands that this was just the author's way of setting the scene. Judd is a character if many traits, he is psychologically adult, somewhat insecure with himself, one who is considerate for his family and their happiness, and acceptant o...

Philosophy I Think Therefore I Am

...And as one cannot think without existing and as we think, it follows that we exist. Many people now reject Descartes' point of view, but I completely agree. If we can’t not think how can we truly understand our surroundings and adapt as all humans are naturally born to do. Our ability to think is completely dependent on all of the things we perceive with our minds. Though sometimes our senses can be a deceiving it is completely up to our minds and our thinking ability to be the decipher, the c...

Two Psychological Approaches To Health And Social Care

...For example within a counselling settings it is important to recognise that we may not be able to understand behaviours using question and answer techniques, as the individual may not be aware with what is troubling them. There are other options for service providers to understand the individual.

It is also important of healt...

An analysis of an event from the “Palace of the Peacock”

...The merging of these views is representative of the notion of cross-culturalism that Harris propagates. Unlike multiculturalism, cross-culturalism represents a heterogeneous but unconscious “mutuality” among members originating from different, probably opposing cultures. This cross-culturalism view is the general premise represented in the unity of the multiracial crew and the natives. Such is also the foundation of the whole story. Reference: Harris, Wilson. (1960).

Philosophy Of Mind

...A new framework of thinking that is unknown to us at the present time is necessary to give a more detailed account of subjective experience, but even then it could not be a complete description. Subjective experience is forever confined the each individuals personal experience. Nagel makes a compelling argument. How will we ever give an objective description of the mind? Maybe we never will be able to. Nagel wisely reminds us that there are limits to human knowledge and the solving mind-body pro...

Id, Ego and Superego

...The ego functions in the conscious (includes everything that we are aware of), preconscious (is a part of the mind that corresponds to ordinary memory. These memories are not conscious, but we can regain them to conscious awareness at any time), and unconscious (reservoir of feelings, thoughts, urges, and memories that outside of our conscious awareness) The last component of personality to develop is the superego. This is the aspect of personality that holds all of our affected moral standards ...

Personal Identity - Philosophy

...Conclusion To call the simple view of the persistence of personal identity “simple” is almost deceptive; deep consideration on the subject quickly turns towards the complex. It is easy to grasp at the categories of body, brain, and mental state, but it would be wrong to say that the persistence of any of those equates to the persistence of an individual. Personal identity is something so much harder to define, and it is harder still to find definitive measures of its continuation. Personal ...

Cinderella Sibling Rivalry

...Bettelheim’s psychoanalytic approach can be a little over bearing if you have never taken a psychology course and learned about the oedipal stage in life. Sigmund Freud explains these processes that and how they happen at young ages. It is disturbing to think that I may have participated in this stage! I am aware that this “stage” is something psychologists believe is real, however, I do not think that it should be compared to the story of Cinderella. I liked and disliked Bruno Bettelheim...

Psychology Manipulation

...This is most often accomplished through covert-aggression or carefully veiled aggression - which may be so subtle that it's not easily detected. Psychological Manipulators know what they want and fight hard to get it. The tactics Psychological Manipulators use are very effective methods of power and control, because they're almost impossible to be seen as aggressive on the surface, at the unconscious level, the victim feels backed into the corner. Once a victim is backed into a corner, it is mor...

Winton Smith, 1984

...It is evident that Winston may have intellectual impairment which affects a person's ability to reason and understand, problem-solve and adapt to new situations. The harsh society he is forced to live in and physical factors such as jerking exercises may have caused psychotic depression where he wasn’t fully able to understand the consequences, which further creates disheartening emotions in the reader (http://www.webmd.com/depression/guide/psychotic-depression). One of the symptoms of psychot...

Sensitive Mothering

...The third level is the highest stage of obedience,(age 6 years) and it is attained when the child’s will power is highly developed. It is characterized by seeking instructions from their role model so that he/she can continue to develop. This is due to the love respect and trust between the child and the adult. The child is so willing to carry out a request from the adult knowing that the requests are in his own interest. For example, when the child is asked to set the table, he would willingl...

Reaction Paper on Personality Theory

...The Interaction of the Id, Ego and Superego With so many competing forces, it is easy to see how conflict might arise between the id, ego and superego. Freud used the term ego strength to refer to the ego's ability to function despite these dueling forces. A person with good ego strength is able to effectively manage these pressures, while those with too much or too little ego strength can become too unyielding or too disrupting. According to Freud, the key to a healthy personality is a balance ...

Core Conditions

...As a counselling skills user, reflecting on my practice I find applying the core condition of empathy can be quite challenging concept to grasp. This is due to the fact that it takes a counsellor to be extremely self aware to lay aside their own thoughts and feelings to tap into the emotions of their clients. Because empathy stems from an understanding of what the client is going through, it may be difficult in some situations for the counsellor to really be on the receiving frequency that the c...

Concept of time

...A third category avoided talking about death, reasoning that it was not yet time for them to think about death as they felt there was plenty time left for such things. Those who avoided thinking about death and those who did not fear death but only feared ‘pain of death’ must be coping with the unrecognized fear of death. As Atchley (1997) puts it, although death is generally accepted with little fear among older people, it is only reasonable to assume that there are some who really fear dea...

Nathaniel Hawthorns use of symbolism in The Hollow of Three Hills

...The use of the sound and colour in the story create a vivid layout and deeply emotionally stirring images in one’s mind that remain in the sub conscious for further thought, this impact could not have been achieved without such extensive use of these devices. The symbolism added understanding to this emotionally stirring story, and created an undertone of resentment for the adulteress, as one was able to realise the crimes that she had committed in relation to religion. Overall, the use of bla...

Death Of A Salesman-The Flute As A Motif

...It is important in showing the failure to the past which Willy lived and it then begins to live it on the present. Also, the flute is also a way for Willy to remember his father who was one of Willy's most important role models. Furthermore, the flute is used to show disturbance within the mind of a character or "sickness" which Willy is suffering. Lastly, the flute is also used as a characteristic of Willy because each time Willy appears, the flute is there with him. The flute has undeniably sh...

The relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth

...Exploring the Macbeths' relationship clarifies the upheaval in the kingdom, its relationship with the king, the causes of Macbeth's fall and disintegration, and allows us insight into the effects of conscience and remorse on the human mind; but it also lets us recognize the personal tragedy of the Macbeths, and their deaths come as a welcome escape, both for them and us, from unendurable self-knowledge. The English king can heal, magically, with his own hands; here, the Doctor says, 'This diseas...
