The Freud Test

What Freud would say about me, according to

Shawn, Freud would say your strongest unconscious conflict stems from events that happened when you were an Adolescent.

He would also conclude that relative to others, your personality today is moderately affected by the events of your childhood. It appears that your biggest unconscious conflict that still afflicts you stems from what Freud defined as the genital stage of development that occurred when you were older than 13. Freud would say that this conflict can manifest in your personality by making you more prone to seek a partner similar to your opposite-sex parent. However, you have a relatively less conflicted sense of gender identity than most people do. This normally happens when parents successfully avoid all the major pitfalls most parents make in earlier years and the child uses their resiliency to manage any early conflicts.

Freud defined five psychosexual developmental stages that everyone goes through on their way from infancy to adolescence. And each of those stages is associated with adult personality traits. At each stage, we all had to overcome certain "conflicts" or hurdles as we learned new skills and developed relationships with others. No one gets through all five stages without having trouble with at least one of them. And it's this unresolved "trouble" that Freud encouraged people to travel back to, recognize, and overcome.

See what Freud would say about how childhood events and the way you were raised led to the conflicts you may still be experiencing today...
