What Freud Thinks of Me

What Freud Thinks of Me Okay, again, I got this off Nat's blog...if you want to take the same test, click on the title to go to the link.

Freudian Inventory Results
Genital (70%) you appear to have a progressive and constructive outlook on life.
Latency (46%) you appear to have a good balance of knowledge seeking and practicality.
Phallic (70%) you appear to have issues with controlling your sexual desires and possibly fidelity.
Anal (50%) you appear to have a good balance of self control and spontaneity.
Oral (33%) you appear to be stubbornly and irrationally against receiving help even when it might be the more intelligent option.

Freuds theorized that there are 5 stages of psychological development. At the oral stage the main issue is dependency, at the anal stage the main issue is self control, at the phallic stage the main issue is sexual identity, at the latency stage it's skill development, and at the genital stage its creativity and productivity.
Freud theorized that psychological problems are related to problems during one or more of these stages. For example, being too cared for or too neglected causes someone to be orally fixated, too much or too little control causes someone to be anally fixated, insufficient parental role modeling causes phallic fixation.
An orally fixated person is either irrationally dependent (expects what they want to just appear) or irrationally independent (always refuses help).
An anally fixated person is either irrationally self controlled and servile to authority or has no self control and is compulsively defiant of authority.
A phallicly fixated person is either a sexual compulsive (sexually innappropriate/promiscuous) or sexually repressed.
Freud did not classify any latent fixation but I think it is as plausible as those at the other stages. I speculate that people that like to learn and acquire knowledge without any purpose or people that are compulsively non curious represent both dysfunctional ends of the latency spectrum.
The genital stage is the final Freudian developmental stage and according to Freud people don't all succeed at this. Freud believed the ideal for human happiness is to be happy in love and work, problems in one or the other cause unhappiness.
Like any personality system, Freud's developmental levels are just a theory, so, be speculative about your results.

this had really been a good test...i just had to laugh about the questions on my fidelity...i've always been faithful and look what it turned me into (lol)....and i always will be, i still consider it the lowest thing one can ever do to a person (do i detect i hint of bitterness in here? ha ha, only real friends would know that)...anyway, as for the rest, the survey was accurate enough but kinda too, i dont know, vanilla-ish of me. i never knew i was this cut-to-the-chase person. i guess living with 5 very difficult persons in all shapes, age, and sizes have taken out the excitement out of my life.
