    The Freud Test

    What would Freud say about you?

    http://www.emode.com/tests/freud/

    I think Freud is a complete hack, but my results were dead on and everyone tells me I'm too anal about everything (I also have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, which adds to it):

    Anna, Freud would say your strongest unconscious conflict stems from events that happened when you were a Toddler.

    He would also conclude that relative to others, your personality today is strongly 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 anal stage of development that occurred when you were between a year and a half and three years old. Freud would say that this conflict can manifest in your personality by giving you a tendency to be especially orderly or clean, or "retentive." You may also harbor a strong rebellious streak. This normally happens when parents toilet-train a child on some kind of schedule, rather than at the child's natural pace and the child naturally reacts by struggling for their autonomy and the legitimacy of their needs.

    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.

    Todd, Freud would say your strongest unconscious conflict stems from events that happened when you were a Toddler.

    He would also conclude that relative to others, your personality today is moderately affected by the events of your childhood.

    senrik, Freud would say your strongest unconscious conflict stems from events that happened when you were a Young Child.

    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 phallic stage of development that occurred when you were between the ages of three and seven. Freud would say that this conflict can manifest in your personality by making you notice gender more than others do. You're also likely to pay close attention to how gender plays out in relationships. Additionally, you're likely to derive greater pleasure than most others do from masturbation. This normally happens when parents deliver implicit or explicit messages that masturbating is bad and the child naturally reacts by trying to suppress the need and developing guilt around masturbation.
