Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrists, was interested in which symbols and common myths were able to seep into our thinking on both conscious and subconscious level. Initially working with an Austrian psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud, in the late 1800s both agreed with the significance of recurring themes in people’s dreams. However, Jung and Freud took different paths with the disagreement of sexuality driving other’s personalities. He wrote The Personal and Collective Unconscious to demonstrates his views regarding the psyche and how it influenced other parts of other’s personalities. In contrast, Freud placed much emphasis on the sexual origins in his patients’ personalities and was unwilling to consider any other viewpoints.
However, many of Adler’s concepts and views were very different from Freud’s, specifically regarding the importance of social realm. This then lead Adler to form individual psychology, and founded the Society of Individual Psychology in 1912. The article also talks about Adler’s goals and the impact he had on the world today. Alfred Adler’s goal was to create a psychological movement that argued for the holistic(comprehensive) view of an individual as well as social equality. Adler believed that the social and community realms are equally important to psychology as the internal realm of the individual.
(Names, dates) Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) along with his friend the doctor Josef Breuer publised a book called Studies in Hysteria (1895) based in The case of Anna O (real name Bertha Pappenheim) this case marked a turning point in the career of him. It even went on to influence the future direction of psychology as a whole. Freud proposed that physical symptoms are often the surface manifestations of deeply repressed conflicts. However, Freud was not just advancing an explanation of a particular illness. Implicitly he was proposing a revolutionary new theory of the human psyche itself.
He was taken to the psychiatrist and maybe because of this he became fascinated with psychology. His first major work was study of mental illness. In Madness and Civilisation (1961), he talked about how madness was seen by the society as a social construct different from mental illness.

His other works are The Order of Things where he studied the structure of various course of discipline, where he identified the epistemic system under all periods of history, namely Renaissance, The Classic Age and Modernity.
Introduction The Austrian physician, Sigmund Freud, created a set of psychotherapeutic and psychological theories called ‘psychoanalysis’ as well as derivative works of Josef Breuer and others. He claimed that his psychoanalytical theories was a contribution to science. He re-established the idea that dream had meanings, and that we can discover the meaning through the work of dream interpretation. In this essay, I will be discussing the use of psychoanalysis, Freud’s Theory of the unconscious mind. I will look into artists within the surrealism movement as well as contemporary artists who have used the unconscious mind for their work that they do psychologically and physically to give their viewers another insight to thinking of their environment.
Freud’s theory of personality and psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud (6 May 1856 – 23 September 1939) was an neurologist and also known as the father of psychoanalysis. Sigmund Freud explored the human mind and developed some of the most influential theories in modern psychology and psychoanalysis.

The term deterministic or determinism in short intends to be conceived with it, Corey (2009) expressed that "as indicated by Freud, our conduct is controlled by unreasonable powers, oblivious inspirations, and organic and instinctual drives" So Sigmund Freud thought that there is no such thing as human mischance and that future occasion are a consequence of past activity. These
Mentalism is a term that refers to those branches of study which concentrate on mental perception and thought processes of an individual like cognitive psychology. This is in opposition to disciplines that believe that study of psychology should focus on the structure of causal relationships and conditioned responses, through scientific methods and experimentation. Throughout the history of psychology, mentalism and behaviorism clashed, with one another representing the dominant pattern of psychological investigation at different times. Mentalism or behaviorism neither of them are mutually exclusive, these are the elements dominating each other which can be seen equally, perhaps more of the modern times compared to the psychology of over a
Birth order is assumed to influence various facets of one’s personality development, character, intelligence and career choices (Stewart et al., 2001). The behavior of the younger or elder in the family .This lead Alfred Adler to study the effects of birth order on personality.
