Freud believed defense mechanisms happen indirectly and unconsciously. He also believed that repression is the foundation for them all.
the angel on one shoulder, the devil on the other. the one who must satisfy the two. we've all seen this scenario, right?
the angel. very 1w2-esque. this incorporates societal values and beliefs, and is learned through authority figures. it punishes bad behavior with guilt and rewards good behavior by being your ideal self.
The devil! An unconscious, impulsive, chaotic devil. The id operates on the pleasure principle. Does this not sound interesting? I find the id charming, as I've typed it as an sx 7w8. King and Murr come to mind~
the one who must satisfy the two without negative consequences. the ego functions so that it seeks pleasure and avoidds pain. sounds unrealistic to me. it operates on the reality principle. For some reason, Monika came to mind.
I think I'll rewrite and change the general style of these notes!! All the details are making me snooze...I want this to be a dreamland, not a textbook! I might play around with the color scheme, etc etc. I just really don't want this to be something boring...
