Now, this blog is not intentionally meant to be a "roast" of Sigmund Freud; but, you know, it may just end up that way.

It baffles me that Freud believed and preached the claims that he made.
How did these claims even make it into any psychology book?
They are such extraordinary claims and he never any backs it up with
extraordinary evidence. Did he not understand the scientific thinking principles?
I mean, there are only six of them...

First, I would ask him, "What were the events that lead to causation of us meeting?"
He states in his theory of personality that 'psychic determinism' is the assumption that all events are caused and apparently we aren't free to choose our actions.
But in all reality, I chose freely to ask that question. Didn't I?
Falsify that one Sigmund.

Next, I would spend most of my time questioning his idea of
"The Stages of Psychosexual Development".
This 'concept', if you can call it that, is what puzzles me most.
I would ask him, "What kid, girl or boy, have you EVER met that wanted to kill his mother or father because they felt strong urges to have sex with their parent of the opposite sex?
What kid?
Name five?
Okay, no, name one?"
The only "evidence" that Freud had was that he attended a Greek play, where the son kills his father because he fantasizes about his own mother.
But, the key word there, was that he attended a play.
So, because he witnessed a fictional play he was somehow able to discover how the mind works.
Yeah, I don't think so.

Sorry Sig, but next time you want to come up with a theory, just follow the 6 simple scientific principles. We learned about them in chapter one, so it shouldn't be all that difficult.
Also, sorry for roasting you. I'm sure you were a nice guy.

My dad: girls scouts leader, soccer coach, teacher and friend. He has taught me how to act, how to overcome obstacles and how to handle accomplishment and defeat. When reading the psychology book, it states, "Children benefit from warm, close relationships with their fathers regardless of how much time they spend with him."

I would agree with this statement 100%.

My dad has always been there for me, through the good times and the bad. He had helped me shape my personality and helped improve and determine my self image.

According to Joan Burke, "A father's relationship with his daughter has an amazingly powerful influence in shaping her self-image, competence, and femininity, as well as her perception of all the men in her life."

Where again, I would agree with this statement. Whereas my dad has helped with my self-image, competence and femininity he has also helped shaped my perception of men, because I understand that men and women are different and you need to be detailed with your perceptions and emotions of things.

To my daddy: thanks for being there and for falling under the majority of awesome dads. :)
You're the coolest.
